The Golden Bay Arts Council consists of a group of volunteers who support and initiate local Arts events. Run by the Arts Council in an historic building in Takaka, the "Art Bank" showcases and sells the creations of local artists and artisans. The most enduring event is "Bay Art", a Labour weekend competition and exhibition, which attracts high quality and varied entries.
Internationally recognised, New Zealand landscape artist Marion Towns has a creditable list of major exhibitions behind her and her works sell to art lovers throughout the world.

Her paintings fall into the Impressionist category - mostly landscapes and seascapes - to which she occasionally adds the female nude form very cleverly emphasising the contours and curves of both.
