Y FAENOR Gallery
The exhibition space is occasionally used for functions. If travelling, please contact REDHOUSE first to ensure that the gallery will be open to the general public during the time of your planned visit.
The ‘1868’ show in the main gallery will take you through a year in Merthyr Tydfil’s history, seen through the experiences of local people.
Thirty portraits by artist Anthony Rhys relate the working conditions, housing, health and society of Merthyr Tydfil during a difficult year in the town’s history.
Bare-fist boxers, child workers, town drunks, mean spirited officials, illegal pig keepers and bad singers all feature in ‘1868’ from a time when Merthyr was the largest town in Wales.
1868 runs from Saturday 2nd July until the 27th August 2016.
