About

Oriel Davies connects people with contemporary art and culture in Mid Wales providing opportunities to experience National and International artists working within a Welsh context in a stimulating, engaging, inclusive and welcoming environment.

Formally the Davies Memorial Gallery which was built in 1967 with a legacy left by Gwendoline and Margaret Davies, renowned art collectors and benefactors of the arts in Wales, The Oriel Davies Gallery opened in 1985 and named in recognition of the Davies sisters.

The Gallery originates and presents around ten exhibitions a year, across three gallery spaces. These range from major exhibitions selected from national collections, through to new work by established artists, and to more experimental work by emerging artists in Oriel Davies’ Test Bed space. As well as commissioning new work, Oriel Davies also produces artist films and a range of high quality publications.

THE GALLERY SHOP
The Gallery Shop offers a range of unique designer jewellery, ceramics and textiles by locally and nationally acclaimed makers, as well as art books and magazines, design-led giftware and stationery and children’s toys, books and games.Original art can also be purchased through the Arts Council of Wales Collectorplan.

WORKSHOPS & EXHIBITIONS
Alongside the exhibition programme, which often tours to other venues nationally, Oriel Davies also runs a broad mix of stimulating workshops, courses, talks and events. The Gallery is also widely known for its innovative offsite projects and outreach programmes for schools, colleges and the wider community.

The cafe is currently closed, but you're welcome to bring a picnic and either sit on the patio or borrow a Cecile Johnson Soliz blanket to sit on the grass. We hope to announce a new cafe soon.

MEETING ROOM HIRE
The ODG Lecture and Meeting Room is hired out to groups from across Wales and beyond who take advantage of the Gallery's central location, clean and modern facilities and excellent catering.
