 Rhayader Art Group

 Rhayader Art Group, now in its 12th year, was founded in 2005 with the aim of providing a focal point for local artists in Rhayader, and the surrounding district, to meet and enjoy art.

The aim is to create a very informal and friendly environment where members learn from each other whilst enjoying making art together. A weekly programme is used but members are free to deviate from it; and the whole group have on occasions gone off on a tangent when new ideas and interests have emerged. However, the programme has benefitted all members in getting them to try new media, subject matter etc.  Sharing ideas on subjects, techniques and materials, and also getting ‘fresh eyes’ to view your work is very much the order of the day. A wide range of media is used.

Meetings are held at the 'Old School' in Cwmdauddwr. The structure is based on informal painting and drawing sessions, with occasional tutored sessions, DVD viewings, and outdoor sketching trips.

We have held numerous exhibitions in the Old School, Cwmdauddwr and at the Elan Valley Visitor Centre. Additional exhibitions are arranged by invitation. Following our recent exhibition at the Wyeside Gallery at Builth Wells we are looking forward to exhibiting in the Elan Valley Visitor Centre this summer and also Llanwrtyd Wells Art and Heritage Centre during October.

from 1 July to 30 September 2017

followed by an exhibition at

Llanwrtyd Wells Art and Heritage Centre during October 2017
