The Oriel CRiC Gallery upstairs in the CRiC is a beautiful space which showcases creative excellence at its best. The programme of group exhibitions per year features art in various mediums: painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, glass, and jewellery.
Please click on images below to view a gallery of full size images. The current exhibition includes quite a number of printmakers as well as regular exhibitors and will continue until mid September. It will be followed in September by a much anticipated autumn exhibition. A selection of work from Richard Bavin’s Lea and Paget’s Wood series – ‘A Year in the Life of an Ancient Woodland’ will be showcased alongside that of The Picturemakers – a collective of visual artists working in Mid-Wales. As part of a Cultural Exchange Program (China Bridge) the gallery will at the same time host an exhibition of paintings and sculptures from Xinjiang by Mr Liu Jianxin and Ms Yuan Yuan from Xinjiang Normal University in the CRiC Studio.
For more information please view the news page for regular updates, information on exhibiting artists and more images. The gallery has an active social media presence and regularly posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
To support, exhibit and promote original and inspiring contemporary art and craft, the gallery presents a changing programme of 6 exhibitions per year by local and visiting artists and designer makers. In addition to this a program of off-site exhibitions has become popular. The gallery hosts those at local venues and at the CRiC Studio which is a popular space in Beaufort Street which can also be hired as an exhibition space. Please enquire about availability and rental rates by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications to exhibit in the gallery are welcomed by the curating committee.
In keeping with its aim of promoting, celebrating and encouraging participation in the visual arts, the gallery has initiated an art trail of open studios and galleries which runs annually during the Spring Bank Holiday weekend. (26 – 28 May 2018).
