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 normally held twice a year. Members 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.

Talks, demonstrations, workshops,
