The exhibition became a reality thanks to organising committee chairwoman Gay Downing, of Queenstown.
The impressive pieces of artwork, based on myriad influences and inspirations from the past five years, are now on display in the Arrowtown museum. Entry is by gold coin donation.
Mrs Collie said the guild met informally in members' homes and formally in St Margaret's Presbyterian Church, Frankton, on alternating fortnights.
