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 joining during the year). You can download a membership form here: Membership form
To contact the Society please phone 01594 542636.
Our next exhibition is our Summer Exhibition in July at the Shire Hall, Monmouth.
Our members artworks and cards will be on show and for sale from Wednesday 27th July to Sunday 31st July, from 11 am to 4 pm each day. The exhibition will include entries for the Protheroe Prize, our annual competition for members.
The Shire Hall is in the centre of Monmouth and parking is available nearby. Admission to the exhibition is free.
Information on set-up etc for members is on this page: Info for members
Our last exhibition was at the Studio Cinema, Coleford over the Easter weekend. Over 300 people came to see it.
These artworks were voted best in show by the exhibition visitors:
WGAS members’ paintings are now on show at the Miners Country Inn at Sling. The Inn is managed by Sam and Steve Jenkins, who are bringing a fresh approach to dining out in the Forest of Dean.
You can see a selection of our members work in the bar/restaurant area of the Inn during normal opening hours. All the works on display are for sale, and the selection changes every 10 weeks.
Please support Sam and Steve and see our artworks at the same time!
