Found Gallery is owned by Punch & James Maughan and was a project in the making for 18 months, the gallery opened on July 4th, 2019.
Having always been interested in contemporary art and ceramics and having worked for 18 months as the Visual Arts Coordinator for The Andrew Lamont Gallery at Theatr Brycheiniog Punch has enjoyed developing 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 future exhibitions.
Found hopes to become one of the leading arts spaces in not only Brecon, but also in Wales. The gallery offers a refreshed, diverse and encouraging stance of what a contemporary art gallery can and should be. The changing exhibition programme showcases emerging as well as established creative talent.
We want to thank our architects: Sarah & Jeremy of 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.
