Selwyn Practicing Artists

About Selwyn Practicing Artists...

Who Are We?

Selwyn Practicing Artists is a group for practicing artists who live, work or play in the Selwyn District to meet and to provide encouragement, inspiration, information and connection to one another, by discussing:

· their work in progress, techniques, inspiration;

· practical matters such as exhibiting, working with galleries, promotion;

· opportunities and resources such as exhibitions, courses, books, etc.


When Do We Meet?

We usually meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 7pm in the Te Huanui Gallery in Darfield (Check our Facebook Page for any changes). At other times we might meet up to view exhibitions, or go on field trips to do some sketching/painting/photography together as a group. We have an active members only Facebook page where we connect and share ideas and opportunities with each other.

Join Us

We welcome practicing artists at any stage in their career or professional artistic journey. Our different skills, artistic mediums, levels of experience and areas of expertise makes our group vibrant and supportive.

We are a very relaxed group and all activities and initiatives are run by members. Joining is free, and there's no sign up form. Members take part in what they can, when they can. The idea is to connect, share and support each other in our art practice.

If you have any questions, or want to let us know that you're keen to be a part of what we do, please get in touch with us:
