The Hutt Art Society

The Hutt Art Society, formerly the Hutt Art Club, was established in 1958. The activities of this energetic society, which include short courses of instruction in drawing and painting and weekend school, are centred round the club room in Woburn Road, Lower Hutt. An annual exhibition of members' work is staged in the attractive gallery of the Hutt Valley Memorial Library. A guest artist is invited to exhibit each year.

In 1961 the society made a generous grant to the National Art Gallery to purchase Spencer Gore's “The Artist's Wife”.
