Welcome to the Feilding Art Society
LOCKDOWN IS OVER AND WE ARE NOW OPEN AGAIN
Feilding Art Society had its beginnings in 1969. It occupies its own spacious building at 104 Manchester Street (opposite Courtesy Ford), which is only 75 meters from the clock tower and Friday’s Farmers’ Market
As well as an attractively presented display areas downstairs, there is a well light large work space upstairs which also includes a library. The Centre is well heated with three large heat pumps.
What we do
- We showcase works of local artists in genres as diverse as painting, ceramics, sculpture, wood turning, weaving, jewellery and mixed-media.
- We run workshops tutored by recognised artists. These offer participants a valuable opportunity to draw on the talents and skills of the tutors.
- We hold four large events annually. The Art and Garden Trail in January (Wellington Anniversary Weekend), the Members’ Exhibition in April, the Art Expo in July (held at the Conference and Function Centre (previously the Convention Centre) in Palmerston North, and the Art Awards in October.
- We offer childrens’ art classes on Wednesdays after school. (These are scheduled to start in term 2, 2019).
- We host ‘have a go’ groups which run on Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday and Friday mornings. These cater for many crafts including knitting, embroidery and drawing.
- We provide an environment for all artists working in any genre to exhibit their works. You don’t have to be a member to hold an exhibition. For further information and application form, please refer to the ‘Exhibition Timetable’ tag on this website.
