Wales' Oldest Art Gallery. In 2007 Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw celebrated its centenary-and-a-half making it not only one of Wales' most picturesque art venues but also its oldest. Nestling in the village of Llanbedrog on the Llŷn Peninsula, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the Gothic styled Mansion was built in 1857 as a Dower house for Lady Elizabeth Jones Parry of the Madryn Estate. Lady Love had a substantial art collection and the mansion was designed to purposely house her collection. It was no suprise therefore that Cardiff entrepreneur Solomon Andrews seized upon the opportunity at the Madryn Estate sale of 1896 to purchase Plas Glyn-y-Weddw and turn it into a public arts venue. Today we stage changing exhibitions by premier artists from Wales and beyond. You can also enjoy adult and kids art workshops, concerts, lectures, craft fairs along with many other activities, throughout the year. With free entry to the gallery and an award winning tea room and craft shop to enjoy there is something for everyone at this most relaxing of locations. A warm Welsh welcome awaits you (families in particular) and we have full access for people with disabilities.
