Oriel Gallery , Art Galleries Barmouth, Gwynedd - Wales where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


2 Tyn-Y-Coed Buildings, High Street Barmouth Gwynedd Wales
Oriel Gallery was first opened in June 1992 in Barmouth, North Wales. Founded by Valerie and Kevin McArdell, the business has gone from strength to strength since its inception. An artist herself, Valerie always dreamed of having her own gallery, and with Kevin's support they made the dream a reality. Visitors to the gallery often describe its selection of work as "lively", as Oriel is ever changing, and staying ahead of the latest trends. The business was initially based around tourism, however, Oriel now supplies work to other galleries throughout the UK and also to many overseas locations. Valerie has always been the public face of the business, while Kevin works behind the scenes in the technical department, maintaining the busy printing business. The Gallery is situated in Barmouth High Street and has possibly one of the oldest original Victorian shop windows (approximately 150 years old) in the town.
