Andrew Lamont Gallery
The Gallery aims to showcase a diverse range of work from local, national and international artists. From 2018, a selection panel will be choosing exhibitions for their excellence, contemporary qualities and past credentials, with the aim to exhibit a broad range of work, ranging from established artists to those at the start of their career. Some exhibitions will feature work for sale, others will be part of community projects with which Theatr Brycheiniog is involved.
As of May 2018 The Andrew Lamont Gallery can offer you the opportunity to buy original works of art and craft through Collectorplan.
