Nepean Art Society

As part of Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest Spring exhibition suite Flower Show, Nepean Art Society was invited to provide art works which engaged with our floral theme.

The natural and botanical world, including landscapes, flowers and still life remain favoured subject matter for artists the world over. This is no different for members of Nepean Art Society. In this group exhibition, Bloom, we see a world of private gardens, bush settings, floral arrangements and cut flowers. Also evident is the clear passion the Nepean Art Society members evince for their subject matter.
Displayed as a group, there is an evident diversity of practice, such as style, technique, palette and materials. The range of painting medium employed, for example, includes the delicacy of watercolour, the vibrancy of pastels, acrylic and oil paints, as well as the versatility of pen and ink, and collage. As the world explodes with blooms this Spring, we hope audiences will find equal delight in these colourful works.

Formed in 1967 by a group of enthusiastic local amateur painters, the Nepean Art Society has continued to support the creativity of the local community and grown to over 150 members. Meeting regularly to paint, both in studio and plein air, the society holds workshops and exhibitions and provides members with opportunities to discuss their work.
