Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, the safety of our visitors has remained our utmost priority.  For those of you who have visited Oriel Myrddin Gallery since we reopened in August, you will have seen all the new safety procedures that we’ve put in place to ensure your visit with us is as safe as possible. We have been delighted to welcome you back and are incredibly grateful for your consideration and cooperation in following the new visiting guidelines

Following the Welsh Government’s announcement to introduce a ‘firebreak’ lockdown due to the increase of COVID-19 cases in Wales, Oriel Myrddin Gallery will be closing its doors at 3pm this Friday 23 October. We will reopen on Tuesday 10 November with our Winter exhibition and look forward to seeing you all then.


Oriel Myrddin Gallery is the main publicly funded art and craft gallery for the south-west Wales region, presenting an ambitious contemporary programme of temporary exhibitions. Located in a listed Victorian building in the centre of Carmarthen, the gallery is pivotal to the cultural energy and identity of the town.

The egalitarian and aspirational principals of the organisation, that were laid down on the official opening of the Carmarthen School of Art in 1892, were transferred to the Oriel Myrddin Trust on the opening of Oriel Myrddin Gallery in 1991. These core principles remain central to the gallery activity today; the foundation of which is to operate an inclusive, free art gallery engaging, challenging and enabling local and regional visitors of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to participate in the gallery’s exhibitions and education programmes.

Oriel Myrddin Gallery is supported by The Arts Council of Wales
