The Society started as Truro and District Art Society after WWII. Originally a class in a schoolroom, in what is now Truro Library, the members decided to form a new Society. Although it subsequently changed its name to the snappier Truro Art Society it still has members from Truro district and from other parts of Cornwall. It also has far more members than would fit into one schoolroom. Some come to monthly meetings in the Piran Performing Arts Centre at Truro High School, some exhibit in the Annual Selected Exhibition and in smaller unselected exhibitions. Some attend workshops. Some enjoy the newsletter. We try to provide something to please everybody.

come and join us!

COVID19 Precautions

1. We have investigated the lecture theatre and have permission to have the fire door open allowing a through draught across the hall. 

We suggest you wear layers of warm clothing!

2.  For everyone’s safety and well-being we would suggest members and visitors take a lateral flow test on the day of meeting. The NHS  website states: 

“About 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not have symptoms but can still infect others.

You should do a rapid test twice a week (every 3 to 4 days) to check if you have the virus. If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading.

Even if you’re vaccinated, there’s still a chance you can pass COVID-19 on, so you should keep getting tested regularly.”

(Lateral flow tests are free in packs of seven from pharmacies or can be requested online Order coronavirus (COVID-19) rapid lateral flow tests – GOV.UK)

3.  We are requesting members wear face coverings, and are providing hand gel for use on entry. Members are asked to bring their own refreshments for the time being.
