Artworkhouse Abergavenny

gallery The Artworkhouse Gallery was first opened in July 2011.  Based in one of the stone workhouse buildings originally constructed in 1837, the interior has recently been adapted to accommodate a sparkling new Art gallery presenting an exciting line-up of exhibitions by artists based both locally and internationally.

artworkhouse6The Artworkhouse Gallery was started by artist Christopher Davies who brought something dynamic and much needed to the Abergavenny area - a gallery that is serious about art and a gallery which promotes serious art concerns generated by a group of committed artists.  The gallery is now run by Angela Bowen, Teena Hughes, Harriet Lloyd and John Hurst.

Since its opening the gallery has hosted exhibitions by David Gould, Peter Lamb, Chris Davies, Angela Bowen, Caryl Roese, Clare Faulkner, Helga Prosser, Harriet Lloyd, Christina Mitchell, Teena Hughes, Bob Mitchell, Hugh Davies, Chris Hall, Dave Parkinson and Selected Abergavenny Artists, together with work by photographers Toril Brancher, James Hudson and Wig Worland.
