Nepean Art Society Inc.


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. We also promote local art within the Penrith, St Marys and Lower Blue Mountains area.

The Society offers a variety of teachers, classes, workshops and demonstrations. Exhibitions are held twice a year to showcase and sell members' work.

Our patron is Warwick Fuller, who was the official tour artist for His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall in 2015, as he was during their 2012 tour.

The Nepean Art Society is here to mentor, educate, inspire and motivate the community about the art culture in Penrith.

We have over 140 members and welcome new members. Join us!
