The Art Society of Inverness was founded over 75 years ago and is still going strong; it brings together professionals, semi-professional artists, and those with an interest in art from all over the Highlands. It provides a wide range of activities and opportunities, from talks and beginners classes, to regular evening classes, workshops and exhibitions. This website is intended for both members and non-members, so please explore it through the menus above to find out more.

Some of our activities are illustrated below, followed by news about recent and upcoming events. Recent news can also be found on our Facebook Site here.
