Formed in 1881 and constituted in 1882 by Queen Victoria, we are a unique institution in Wales - an independent charity supporting Welsh art and artists, where art is encouraged, made, exhibited and debated.
We have over 100 artist members whose work is exhibited and sold at the gallery based in Conwy. We promote up and coming artists of quality, mount contemporary and historical exhibitions, and offer a lively programme of education and community workshops.
This exhibition celebrates a broad range of painting, drawing, print, photography, textiles, sculpture and film. ...Find out more »
