The Royal Cambrian Academy of Art was established in 1882. It is one of only 5 British Academies and the only Welsh Academy, therefore of unique status. The Royal Cambrian Academy is devoted to the visual arts in Wales and the membership of over 115 Academicians includes many of Wales' most popular and highly respected artists like Malcolm Edwards, Aneurin Jones and Karel Lek.
The modern, well-lit gallery holds nine exciting exhibitions each year, as well as various lectures, talks, demonstrations and workshops. There is also our annual painting marathon held on Conwy Quay every August Bank Holiday by our members where anyone can come and place bids on RCA works. The money raised helps go towards our excellent educations program here at the RCA.
