Porthcawl Art Society
Meeting Place Meetings are held every Wednesday afternoon and Thursday evenings all year round at the Old Police Station Gallery, John Street, Porthcawl, West Glamorgan, South Wales, UK


Regular workshops are held in the Gallery of the listed building known as the Old Police Station in Porthcawl. The society is among the oldest established active groups in South Wales. The Gallery is open to the public most days from Easter until the end of October and then weekends only. With five major exhibitions of new works each year, members are kept busy and an ever-improving standard of work is produced. The result is a constantly changing display within the Gallery which encourages regular visits by the public.

Demonstrations in all mediums are a regular feature with professional artists. These have proved so popular that it has been necessary to hire a larger hall to accommodate members and visitors. Field trips are organised and well supported.

Craft is also a feature of the Society and Fairs are held in the Spring and for Christmas.
