Royal Cambrian Academy
THE ROYAL CAMBRIAN ACADEMY
.In 1993, the Academy moved to its present home in Crown Lane, Conwy immediately behind Plas Mawr. Under the Leadership of its the president Sir Kyffin Williams, it set about preparing itself for the new millenium. New members were elected, many of them setting out on their artistic lives and in common with the world at large, new media, new techniques and new styles melded comfortably with the work of existing members.
Today in its 127th. year, the Royal Cambrian Academy has over one hundred artist members. Its new Patron is His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales and its President is the distinguished Royal Academician and Keeper of the Royal Academy Schools, Professor Maurice Cockrill. Its Gallery in Crown Lane Conwy has a continuous exhibition progamme of works by members, national and international touring exhibitions and open exhibitions where non-members get an opportunity to show their work and hopefully, sell it. The academy runs art classes and has an educational programme for schools.
