Oriel Bevan Jones Gallery is named after one of our founders, the late Dr Huw Bevan Jones, and exclusively features work by our professional registered artists. The gallery is an important developmental addition to Arts Care Gofal Celf, finally giving us the opportunity to show off what we do best whilst also ensuring that our invaluable charity work is further funded.
Showcasing the work of the professional artists on the Arts Care Gofal Celf register, we are stocked with high quality art, spanning a range of art forms – from sculpture to textiles, jewellery to printwork, leather goods to portraiture. All sales take a 30% commission which goes directly back into the charity to fund and create more workshops.
We have a full and rolling programme of exhibitions in both our gallery spaces, as well as mini-solo exhibitions in our display window area, fronting King Street. We support and encourage local new talent as well as having a representation of our “core artists” work which is available year-round. Please ask for details of our Gift Tokens.
We are a proud member of the Arts Council Collectorplan scheme.
Collectorplan is an interest-free credit service to help you buy contemporary art and craft in Wales. Under the plan, you only need to pay a 10% deposit upfront and the Collectorplan loan is repaid in monthly instalments by direct debit. The maximum period for repaying a Collectorplan loan is 12 months. The minimum monthly repayment is £10. You can buy multiple works of art from multiple galleries up to the maximum £5,000 credit facility threshold. Loans are available to UK residents aged 18 or over with a bank or building society account capable of operating direct debits. A Collectorplan loan is normally approved in 7-10 days.
As well as work from our professional artists, we also have a range of items for sale, made specifically for Oriel Bevan Jones Gallery by our committed team of ‘Gallery Angels’. The items for sale, which include cards & jewellery, are generously made, by hand, in order to raise funds for the gallery. These funds help keep us pay for bags, marketing & sundries which, as a registered charity, can sometimes be difficult to fund.
We thank our very special Gallery Angels for their support. If you would like to become a Gallery Angel, please contact Gallery & Exhibitions Manager, Eiryl George, who will be very happy to discuss options with you.
