Charles and Vera Appleyard and Charles Hopkins founded Frome Art Society in 1979 to encourage local people to become involved in painting and drawing in a friendly atmosphere.
We remain a welcoming, supportive and inclusive society, with members of all abilities, both amateur and professional. We normally hold one or two exhibitions a year and provide a varied annual programme of demonstrations, talks, workshops and outdoor painting opportunities.
During the Covid pandemic we have continued to offer members art demonstrations, talks and workshops and we have a monthly themed art challenge with members coming together to share their work and chat about what they have been dong, all via Zoom.
We are now very much looking forward to the end of restrictions and getting outdoors when the better weather comes to sketch and paint amongst friends.
Membership costs £15 per annum and is open to all.
