The late 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 hold two exhibitions a year and provide a varied annual programme of demonstrations, talks, workshops and painting opportunities.
Look out for a new Facebook site, dedicated to Charles Hopkins' work, created by Chris Alford. The address is: https://www.facebook.com/Charles-Hopkins-ARCA-1670323963250379/
