Two Exhibitions are held every year.

Queens Gardens
in mid January. This is an open air exhibition at the Hardy St end of the gardens with up to 50 artists exhibiting.

Winter Exhibition
in June. An indoor exhibition with several of the best works from about 50 artists.

These are a great opportunity to display and sell art works.
Regular monthly meeting
First Wednesday of the month, 7:30pm - 9:30pm, National Party Hall, at the corner of Waimea Road and Quarantine Road, Wakatu, Nelson. (No meeting in January.)

Monthly 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 tea or coffee and a biscuit and the opportunity to talk to other members.

Painting Day
Monthly Open Painting Days offer members the opportunity to get together to paint and share ideas and knowledge; these are from 9.30am to 12.30 pm. Details in the monthly newsletter.

Tutorial Day
Tutorial workshops are held regularly from 9.30am to 3.30pm with experienced professional artists. A charge appropriate to the particular workshop applies. Advance information is given in the monthly newsletter.

A monthly Newsletter keeps members informed of forthcoming meetings, exhibitions, tutorial workshops, open painting days and other items of interest.
