  • The Wednesday Group Exhibition.

The Wednesday Group are painters who gather together once a week and are tutored by artist Megan Huffadine. They travel from Cromwell,  Hawea, Wanaka,  and the Queenstown area to attend classes. At the end of each year a group exhibition is held.

Some of the members of the groups have been working for several years, others are beginning their journey with painting. The group ranges in age with oldest member and regular attendee being 88 years old. Subject matter includes landscapes, flowers, figurative and abstract works. Participants have made drawings and used photographs as starting points for their work. They have taken ideas and developed these though a series of works painted during the year. The paintings demonstrate a range of approaches and varied media use; expressive and vigorous works alongside deftly handled and delicately worked images. The exhibition is a celebration of their work, commitment and journey throughout the year.
