Truro Art Society started as Truro and District Art Society after the end of the Second World War. 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 Jenny Agutter Theatre at Truro High School, some exhibit in the Annual Selected Exhibition and in smaller unselected exhibitions. Other members attend workshops.
