Welcome to the Shropshire Art Society, a thriving community of artists and lovers of the visual arts, based in the beautiful county of Shropshire. We showcase our work to the public in two major art exhibitions each year and we organise a wide variety of activities for our members including workshops and classes, lectures, gallery trips and painting holidays.

Our friendly Society is long-established. It was originally formed in 1948 when it evolved from a group of Shrewsbury artists known as The Shrewsbury Seven that had been meeting since 1924. Over the decades the Society has transformed itself from a small membership of painters exhibiting their work, to a community of over 250 people — artists and non-artists, all with two things in common: residence in Shropshire and a desire to further their interest in and love of the visual arts.

We invite you to explore the Shropshire Art Society website: see details of our exhibitions, read our latest news, discover the wide range of activities we offer and find out how to join us. We will be delighted to hear from you or to see you at one of our events very soon!
