About us

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.

Abstract Finds 

from 21st October 

This abstract themed exhibition features paintings by artist Steward Macindoe, whose comment about his work is that they are the 'workings' from trying to give shape to his experience of the world for which there is no definitive answer. Peaceful lines and muted colours are their signature theme.

Steward is joined by photographer Andrew Williams who is exhibiting a series of handmade prints that have been taken using the most elementary form of photography:a a homemade wooden box with a sheet of 5" x 4" film at one end, and a pinhole aperture at the other. They are a series taken during early mornings, in clear light and stillness.

Potter Damian Keefe is showing work from one strand of his practice which features a red clay base, a single glaze, two decorative slips and designs abstracted from natural and biological materials or phenomena rendered as dots and circles.

The exhibition includes a collection of baskets made by Anna Stickland from the Swansea Valley and some glorious hand dyed shibori scarves made of a silk and bamboo fabric.

Recent Blacksmith Artist graduate, Dominic Powell, has his Pen ty Fan Chair in our window alongside some contemporary furniture designed by Cardiff based Billy Mason Watts. We are delighted that we will have jewellery by by Ali Tregaskes with us for another month.
