Frome Art Society
The late Charles and Vera Appleyard and Charles Hopkins founded Frome Art Society in 1979 to encourage local people to become involved in painting/drawing in a friendly atmosphere. It continues to be a welcoming, supportive group of people who are interested in the visual arts. It is an inclusive Society with members of all abilities, both amateur and professional. It is run by a voluntary committee elected at the Annual General Meeting held in April.
Exhibitions are held twice a year. Members have to be registered on the exhibiting register (usually a waiting list for this) but work is not normally subject to selection. There is a fee to cover exhibiting costs.
The Society arranges a variety of the following although these can vary according to the willingness of members to serve on the committee. Some involve additional charges to cover costs.
Summer outdoor painting at pre-arranged venues,
Talks, demonstrations, workshops, trips,
Access to a well stocked book and video library
A Newsletter, published three times a year.
Information about membership (presently £10 annually) from Membership secretary;
