The Wellington Art Club

Founded in 1892 and indelibly associated with James Nairn and Pumpkin Cottage at Silver-stream, the Wellington Art Club consists of working members only. Members may draw from the model or attend painting sessions in the clubroom in Upper Willis Street. Lectures, criticisms, demonstrations, and film evenings are conducted regularly.
