Happy 50th anniversary to the Porthcawl Art Society. Last month, I was very pleased to host an exhibition of their work at the Welsh Assembly. The exhibition was a great success and there were some truly fantastic paintings on display including seascapes, floral pictures, local scenes and wildlife paintings. It was a real treat to have the paintings on display at the Assembly. The Artists are hugely talented and a number of AMs, support staff, Assembly Commission staff and many visitors to the Assembly all had the opportunity to enjoy some of their amazing artwork. Many people also took away literature about the Art Society. I know that the Artists have won many new supporters of their work.
I was also delighted to welcome members of the Porthcawl Museum to the Senedd. They had posters on display about the Museum. It continues to go from strength to strength and is a fantastic asset to the town of Porthcawl. They were there to support the Art Society.
I have had great feedback on the exhibition from all those who attended the reception. Here’s to another 50 years.
