This exhibition celebrates Frome Art Society’s 40-year history of biannual awards, named after its founders.
Winning artists from the Vera Skinner Prize (judged by an invited artist) and from the Appleyard Trophy (named after Charles Appleyard and selected by popular vote) will be exhibiting new works. Both awards are named after founding members of the society.
In the early 1990’s Frome Art Society was invited to be the first group to exhibit at the then newly renovated, 17th century ‘Black Swan Inn’. The society progressed to mounting two exhibitions each year. After the extraordinary year of 2020, Frome Art Society returned to the Round Tower in August 2021 with it’s successful ‘ In Company’ exhibition. Now they are delighted to showcase a selection of the society’s prize winners. This exhibition takes place in the shop.
