Welcome to the Feilding and District Art Society

Known locally as the Art Centre and established in 1969, we support artists and artisans by hosting exhibitions, workshops and events including the Manawatu Art Expo. Take part in a workshop, experience our gallery (which hosts a new exhibition every three weeks), and peruse the gallery shop, stocked with beautiful locally-made items. 

If you are an artist or have an interest in the arts, you may wish to join us as a member or become a volunteer - we would love for you to become a part of our thriving creative community. We look forward to your visit!


Feilding Art Centre has an ever-changing programme of exhibitions, with a new show on every month.
