Porthcawl Art Gallery (Mid Glamorgan, Wales)

Porthcawl Art Gallery is one of the oldest established Art Societies in South Wales and features a permanent exhibition in the historic Old Porthcawl Police Station, situated in the centre of the main shopping street (above the museum).

The Gallery is open most days and offers free admission. All are welcome to browse and admire the works on display or purchase a picture of their choice from an average of over a hundred pictures. Ranging from subjects of local scenes, to flowers and animal studies.

The exhibition is constantly changing, and with a total of four major competitions held each year, is well worth your regular visit.

On Saturdays in fine weather you can meet us in the street outside the gallery where we also have our pictures on display. During the Sea Festival in August you will find us in cosy corner with a large selection of paintings.

There are several craft fairs during the year – come along and have a tea or coffee.

If you would like a picture on a particular subject please talk to a society member at the desk, most members will undertake a commission.

We also have a painting on display that you could win by picking a number for only 50p per number, well worth having a go.

Our members meet to paint and share ideas and inspiration on Wednesday afternoons 1.30-4pm and Thursday evenings 7-9pm throughout the year. In addition there are trips and social events throughout the year.

We have several demonstration evenings during the year, which are open to everybody.
