Taupo Art Connection Inc  is an inclusive arts group formed to bring independent visual artists of the Taupo district together. It represents a commitment to creating a vibrant, active arts community that benefits artists and ensures a fulfilling arts experience for visitors to the region.

From the professional to the enthusiastic hobbyist, from painters to sculptors and printmakers, the group provides the opportunity for artists and art lovers to socialise, network, share and encourage each other creatively.

In 2019 we will meet socially on the second Wednesday of each Month commencing on 13th February at the Taupo Cosmopolitan Club.
