Welcome to the Feilding and District Art Society

Established in 1969, the Feilding and District Art Society is a group of over 150 local artists, working together to enrich our community through visual arts.

From our home at Feilding Art Centre, we host exhibitions by emerging and established artists, host affordable workshops for artists at all stages of their journey, and run a shop filled with unique art objects by local creators. On top of that, we hold Manawatū Art Expo in July each year!

The Feilding and District Art Society is here to create opportunities, to connect our creative community, and be a hub where everyone can make, see or buy great local art.

If you want to support our work, join us as a member or become a volunteer - we would love for you to become a part of our thriving creative community. You can also browse our menu to explore the other opportunities we offer.


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