A Monthly Newsletter is posted or emailed to all financial members, giving up to date information about social news and activities, forthcoming Art Shows and other information. Art Shows arranged by the Association, are open to members at a small charge per painting entry, and provide an easy method for members to put their work in front of the public.

Members have free access to our excellent Library of books, magazines and videos on all aspects of painting, drawing, pottery and art in general.

A well equipped Pottery Studio is available for class participants to learn using our up-to-date equipment including rollers and wheels. Within the studio we also provide equipment and instruction for Mosaic Art.

During the year we hold Art Shows for members to exhibit and sell their work.  Our exhibitions may be located in public venues such as local galleries or shopping centres, or in our clubrooms with members of the public invited to attend.  Many of our art shows are judged with awards for winning entries in various categories.

Art Challenges are a popular way for our members to expand their artistic horizons, and have included Black & White art, Pet Portraits, Abstract art, and Impressionism, including an exhibition with awards for those artists judged to have best met the challenge. Our Past Events and Archives pages show just what can be achieved!
