Truro Art Society

The Society started as Truro and District Art Society after WWII. Originally a class in a schoolroom, in what is now Truro Library, the members decided to form a new Society. Although it subsequently changed its name to the snappier Truro Art Society it still has members from Truro district and from other parts of Cornwall. It also has far more members than would fit into one schoolroom. Some come to monthly meetings in the Piran Performing Arts Centre at Truro High School, some exhibit in the Annual Selected Exhibition and in smaller unselected exhibitions. Some attend workshops. Some enjoy the newsletter. We try to provide something to please everybody.

come and join us!


March 20th Meeting - New speaker!

Replacing Peter Skinner, who had had to cancel - we have

Victoria Hilliard

She will be showing some of her enchanting little three-dimensional artworks, and will talk about how they are encapsulated within driftwood frames, or boxes and cupboards.   Her agricultural Cornish  background and her widely travelled world-view allows us to focus in on her mico-images in oils, ceramics and stoneware clay.   They offer the viewer a  magical experience of individual objects that are often lost in the panoramic paintings of landscapes and seascapes with which we are more familiar.
