Andrew Lamont Gallery
We are very proud of our Andrew Lamont Gallery which is situated on the second floor of our venue and offers a large, contemporary space for a varied and eclectic range of exhibitions.
In the gallery we aim to showcase a diverse range of work from local, national and international artists. A selection panel works with the Visual Arts Coordinator to choose the exhibition programme focusing on what the artists, photographers or makers offer in terms of excellence, contemporary qualities and past credentials.
The aim is to exhibit a broad range of work, ranging from established artists to those at the start of their career. Some exhibitions feature work for sale, others are part of community projects with which Theatr Brycheiniog is involved. The size of the gallery and hanging space allows for the display of large and contemporary works as well as for more traditional exhibitions. The gallery hosts an average of eight exhibitions a year – keep an eye on our What’s On page and social media to see what is coming up.
We are delighted that we can offer you the opportunity to buy original works of art and craft through Collectorplan. This is an interest free credit loan scheme managed by Arts Council Wales for loans as small as £50 running to a maximum of £5,000. You need only pay a 10% deposit up front. There is always someone on hand to help if you wish to purchase anything using Collectorplan
The gallery is fully accessible by lift and is generally open 10am – 4.30pm, 7 days a week.
