Riverside Gallery is positioned in the scenic valley town of Ystradgynlais on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The river Tawe runs through the heart of the town and our building, a former village school, that was built in 1906, sits on its bank.
Ystradgynlais is steeped in art and history with a vibrant and growing art community, which is producing work that people can purchase, new gallery spaces, art classes and employment. Swansea University has a world leading glass school and many of the glass artisans who studied there remain in the area producing great pieces of work.
This gallery space, Riverside gallery is an extension to our home interiors business, which also occupies the old Welsh School building. The two businesses compliment each other, as visitors with an interest in creating engaging and beautiful environments, can do so easily.
