The Oriel Lliw Gallery in Pontardawe Arts Centre, Herbert Street, Pontardawe SA8 is a fabulous venue in which to view and purchase high quality artwork. The Arts in the Tawe Valley Group coordinate and curate this space for the benefit of artists, the local community and visitors alike. The Gallery has a diverse array of some of the finest examples of our members work. With rolling exhibitions throughout the year we will be showcasing our creative ideas, individual members artwork and inviting exciting exhibitions from artists outside of the community.
With an interest in skill sharing and learning, we invite people to take the opportunity to learn from our artists in forthcoming workshops and classes. For more information on booking the gallery: OrielLliw@gmail.com
