Contemporary art gallery in the heart of Brecon
Due to the Welsh lockdown we are now closed although able to help with collections or local deliveries.
Found Gallery is owned by Punch & James Maughan and was a project in the making for 18 months, we opened on July 4th, 2019.
Having always been interested in contemporary art and ceramics and more recently having worked as the Visual Arts Coordinator for The Andrew Lamont Gallery at Theatr Brycheiniog Punch has been really excited to develop a space to show off the work of artists and makers that she has discovered and met over the last few years. The journey continues to find more creatives to feature in our future exhibitions.
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.
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 bring Found to Brecon.
Having been closed due to Covid 19 we re-opened on
Tuesday, 14th July. Regretably on 23rd October until 9th November we will be closed again as part of the Welsh National Lockdown.
When we are able to be open the gallery is airy and spacious and you can see whether it is safe to come in as 'social distancing' continues. We have hand sanitiser at the door and gloves are available.
If you would prefer to make a private appointment to visit please do get in touch.
We are delighted to now be able
