Keith Bowen was born in Wrexham, Denbighshire in 1950, and lives in North Wales. He studied Art and Design at Manchester Polytechnic from 1969-72. In 1997, he was awarded the Honorary Fellowship of the University of Wales.

This current exhibition includes paintings of Welsh rivers, mountain streams and hill farmers as well as some scenes from agricultural shows. As a central feature of the exhibition Keith will present a stunning series of small oil paintings depicting the beautiful churches of Llŷn, many of which link the ancient pilgrimage route to Enlli (Bardsey Island).
   
Gareth Thomas was born in 1955 in Swansea. He attended Trinity College, Carmarthen. He left teaching in 1979 to paint full time, and has exhibited widely throughout the UK. His work can be seen in many public collections including those of Swansea City Council, Dyfed County Council and the Royal Artillery.

His paintings have been purchased by people, from as far apart as America and Australia and in 1984 he was elected committee member of the Watercolour Society of Wales.
   
Daniel Roberson was born near London in 1975. He has lived in Machynlleth Mid Wales for the last 7 years where he has been developing his Art.

His current exhibition is titled 'Memory, Observation and Imagination'  A series of everyday situations and places painted from memory, direct  observation and imagination. A selection of personal responses by Daniel to various moments in people’s lives - feeding birds, the exhilaration of swimming in a cold lake, walking on the beach or a moment of calm solitude. Here we have a documentation of experiences in an honest and improvisational  manner. This, for a realist painter, has been a challenge and a liberating experience.

  
 
During the Summer, an opportunity was presented for children and adults to express what the Llŷn Peninsula means to them, by taking part in a 'Photographic Competition' organised by the Gallery.  Here are the winning entries which are exhibitied at the Gallery until the 6th of November including a collection of work by one of the judges Gareth Jenkins.

First prize was won by Greta Hughes (photo right).

Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw is open every day except Tuesdays outside of school holidays:
