Welcome to the nepean art society website
The Nepean Art Society was officially formed in 1967 by a small group of dedicated people. The enthusiasm of the current members continues.
Our aim is to provide a friendly environment where local artists can meet to learn, practise and exhibit their work.
The Society offers a variety of teachers, classes and demonstrations. Exhibitions are held twice a year to showcase and sell members' work.
We have over 100 members and welcome new members. Join us!

DEMONSTRATIONS COMING UP
Our next demonstration will be held on Saturday September 8th 2018.
Demonstration September 8thThe Nepean Art Society feels very fortunate and pleased that our next demonstrator will be John Rice.
John is an energetic outdoor painter who works almost exclusively in oils and is stimulated by the strong light of the Australian landscape. He is particularly enthusiastic about the districts from the Blue Mountains to Mudgee in The Central West artistically. He enjoys painting the landscape from life, “en plein air”, and engages in regular painting trips to country locations. John lives in the village of Mulgoa on the western fringes of Sydney, providing a lot for an artist to digest both aesthetically and culturally as a central location for the Hawkesbury, Blue Mountains and Sydney.
John has won many awards for his artworks and has held twelve very successful solo exhibitions and numerous joint exhibitions. He has works in private collections throughout Australia and abroad and is an exhibiting member of the Royal Art Society. John has almost forty years teaching experience and conducts regular workshops and demonstrations at his studio and for local art societies.
