The Art Society of Inverness was founded 77 years ago and continues to provide a range of opportunities to artists, aspiring artists and those just interested in the visual arts. Our activities include classes, workshops, talks, demonstrations, trips, exhibitions and of course social events. Members come from all over the Highlands and beyond, and include a wide spectrum of artists, from experienced professionals to leisure painters and beginners. This website is for members and non-members alike. Please use the menu above to find out what we do and what is going on. You can also see the work of some of our members on the Gallery pages.
