Tauranga Art Society

Founded in 1946 and incorporated in 1948, the Tauranga Art Society has as yet no permanent premises but stages exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations, and film evenings in a public hall. Subscriptions from members provide the main income. The society is self-supporting and has acquired the nucleus of a permanent art collection. There are a president, three vice-presidents, a committee of eight, and an honorary secretary and treasurer.

Lack of a gallery and club rooms is a drawback and the society hopes that the borough council may make provision for such amenities in its civic planning.
