It is with great pleasure that the Ashburton Society of Arts present their 50th annual exhibition. This year it is held in April and it will be the last exhibition held in the current Art Gallery.
Ashburton Society of Arts formed in 1964, with the philosophy to encourage the study, practice and creativity of the visual arts. This credo has been maintained till the present day.

The eagerly awaited opening night sees the art lovers and enthusiasts of Ashburton turn up and get their first pick of the fantastic selection of works on display.
The annual exhibition features art works from local, national and guest artists with categories including: painting, applied art, craft and photography all of which are available for purchase.
The guest artists this year include local artist Tina Yeatman, Geraldine’s Henry Lowen-Smith and Christchurch artists Min Kim, Svetlana Orinko, Miriam Jones and Colleen Tetley.
Complementing these painters with the applied art section are Keith Grinter, Jane McCulla, Di Conway, Toni Walker, Sara Clegg, Penelope Barnshill, Hayley Inder and Shirley Thompson.

“It really is going to be a special occasion, we look forward to seeing you there” – Pauline Mead, Ashburton Society of Arts President.

Tickets for the Ashburton Society of Arts opening function being held on Monday 7 April 7:00pm are now available from the Gallery reception.
