We are looking for a Chair, Treasurer and Secretary. If you are interested please contact Ailsa Saunders on 01594 542636 or email secretary@wgas.org.uk by Thursday 22nd November
If you are interested in joining WGAS please come to our AGM where you can meet other members and find out more about us.

About WGAS

West Gloucestershire Art Society is based in the Forest of Dean.

We are an exhibiting group who provide ways for our members to exhibit their work at events that we arrange and at events arranged by others. Our focus is on exhibitions, not meetings. Members receive a newsletter with information on our events and other art-related activities in Gloucestershire and the Wye Valley.

Membership is open to all artists – there is no vetting procedure. All members can exhibit their work. Our subscription is just £12 per calendar year (pro-rata for new members for their first year only).

You can download a membership form here: Membership form

To contact the Society please phone 01594 542636.
