The Open 2018

The Royal Cambrian Academy of Art (RCA) is hosting The Open 2018 art exhibition. It runs from Saturday 6th January through to Saturday 10th February.

This is a prestigious annual art exhibition displaying selected work submitted by non-members of the Academy. The selected artwork covers a broad range of subjects and media. Pieces are reviewed and selected by members of the Academy. And the Open 2018 offers a platform for new, exciting and original work. It’s well worth planning a visit to perhaps combined with a potter around the historic town of Conwy.

The RCA is located on Crown Lane, in the centre of Conwy. The nearest car parks are the Castle or Mount Pleasant Road, both about 300m away.

On a recent walk from Penmaenmawr to Abergwyngregyn, we called into the Village Inn. May I say what a superb meal. We picked up a copy of Your Hwb. What a great idea, please keep up the good work.
