"We practice in the fine & applied arts in South Canterbury.
We welcome all people interested in art, from total beginners through to experienced working artists, or even those who are purely “art lovers” - interested in exploring and learning about various art forms. We hold regular exhibitions of artist members’ work, as well as our annual sponsored exhibition, which is open to artists further afield. All our exhibitions are open for public viewing.
We also receive news, ideas and entry forms for exhibitions from associated art societies throughout New Zealand. Art contributions to the Art Society are extremely welcome and encouraged. This is your Art Society."
