Wrexham Open 2015
10 Oct 2015 – 19 Dec 2015
Wrexham, United Kingdom
Oriel Wrecsam is Wrexham's art gallery.
Wrexham is a rich and diverse county with a rich history of innovation, and so much to see and do from the Pontcysyllte World Heritage Site and the beautiful and isolated Ceiriog Valley, to the heart of cultural activity in the centre of town. Oriel Wrecsam shows the very best drawing, print and graphic-based work by local, regional, national and international artists, makers and craftspeople. We're a bit different. We quite often have artists working with us on specific projects that help us to view our surroundings in a new way. We provide a platform for contemporary visual art but we're also a creative hub for performance, music, and other events. We provide a focus for a vibrant and stimulating cultural scene in the region. Follow us on Twitter or Facebook to be kept up to date with the latest cultural things happening in the gallery or Wrexham generally.
We present exhibitions in our 3 gallery spaces, showing Welsh and international contemporary art. We also work closely with emerging artists and are committed to supporting the development of new work. Entry to our exhibitions is free.
siop/shop is the perfect place to buy special presents. We sell a wide range of gifts, objects, books, cards and wrapping paper by artists and makers, including Rob Ryan, Jessie Chorley, Gillian Kyle, Melin Tregwynt, Buddug, St Judes, Peris & Corr, Doodlezine, Dyfal Donc and much, much more.
