Joan Coleman's family kindly donated these two paintings to the club. Joan was an artist, tutor and past president of The Wellington Art Club 1981 -1988. She painted in watercolour, pastels and oils and was a tutor at The Wellington Art Club and Wellington High. Joan was instrumental in organizing the present Wellington Art Club building on its site in Chelsea Street, Miramar.

She became a Life Member of the club in 1988 and is remembered fondly by members of the Wellington Art Club.
