Contemporary art gallery in the heart of Brecon
Please note we are closed for a Winter break until January 29th
Found Gallery was a project in the making for 18 months - but we made it and opened on July 4th, 2019!
Found is aiming to become one of the leading arts spaces in not only Brecon, but also in Wales. The gallery is offering a refreshed, diverse and encouraging stance of what a contemporary art gallery can and should be. The changing exhibition programme will showcase emerging as well as established creative talent.
With the renovation work at an end the search for artist and makers of all mediums continues.
We want to thank our architects - Featherstone Young, the boys on site: Carl, Ant, Paul, Robin, Pete, Nick, Trevor the electrician, Odddots for all the ply work, Design Dough for our branding & design, Roman Glass in Hereford, Colin of Talgarth Joinery, Leon the plumber, Youngs...and everyone else who has helped us!
