ABOUT OUR ART GROUP
The Group was originally formed in 1971 as the Nelson Independent Art Group Inc. and the name was changed in June 2005 to ART GROUP NELSON INC.
The main aim of the group is fostering and encouraging artists at all levels. Our meetings are an opportunity to see or hear about an aspect of art, workshops help hone skills, and Group exhibitions get your art into the world. There are many smaller groups that get together in Nelson to do art together, organized by members, or shared by members who attend. Art Group Nelson is a great way to continue to learn tips and skills, to get involved in Nelson's rich art community, and to socialize with other artists.
There is no selection process for joining the Group and all members are welcome to display their work in Group exhibitions.
The Group is a mix of beginners, hobbyists, and professional artists. All are welcome.
Meet The Committee
Meetings take the form of a social evening with perhaps a guest speaker on an art-related topic, a hands-on creative session led by an experienced artist, helpful discussion of members' work, or a video of some art form. The evenings conclude with 'Show & Tell', where the members share their work, gain invaluable feedback and have the opportunity to talk to other members.
A monthly Newsletter keeps members informed of forthcoming meetings, exhibitions, tutorial workshops, open painting days and other items of interest.
