Each year at the gallery in Conwy, the Royal Cambrian Academy hosts upwards of nine exhibitions which include an exciting range of painting, prints, sculpture and craft.
Most are organised by the RCA team and consist of Academy members or invited artists work. Occasionally, historical or thematic exhibitions occur as part of a UK programme. Others consist of invited groups and open exhibitions.
The RCA aims to display a mixture of contemporary and historical work. Art by the distinguished members of the Academy is always on show during the Annual Summer Exhibition and the Christmas Show and is always for sale.Interest-free Collectorplan is available to help you start collecting.
