Constituted in 1881, the Royal Cambrian Academy is a centre for artistic excellence in Wales. It has over 100 artist members and aims to exhibit work by members of the Academy, to promote up and coming artists of quality, to mount historical exhibitions and offer a lively venue for education.
In 1994, the Academy had its greatest opportunity for a new flourishing start. It broke its connection with Plas Mawr and now has a purpose built gallery of its own, a few yards from Plas Mawr. It has renewed contacts with galleries in the South. The well known Welsh artist, Sir Kyffin Williams, our late president, and other distinguished artists, both from the South and North of Wales, accepted invitations to become members.
The President of the Royal Cambrian Academy is the artist Ivor Davies. Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales is Patron and Honorary Artist Member of the Royal Cambrian Academy.
