Oriel Seren is a not-for-profit Art and Craft Gallery exhibiting and selling work by professional artists and craftspeople. There is an emphasis on local artists and craftspeople but Oriel Seren also displays work by people from further afield including from other rural areas.

Oriel Seren is situated in a prime location on the main shopping street in the market town of Machynlleth, Powys, within the Dyfi Valley Biosphere area. The Gallery offers customers the chance to view and buy unique, handmade pieces of art and craftwork. Oriel Seren provides artists with a cost-effective, professional exhibition space and retail outlet.

The Artists’ page on this website gives details of the Featured and Taster artists who are displaying work in Oriel Seren throughout the year.  Each month we will have a different Guest Artist (see Current Guest Artist page). For information on past exhibitors please view the Previous Guest Artists page.

Current Guest Artist

Our April 2019 Guest Artist is Rob Ackroyd.

We are delighted to show Rob’s framed photographs and greetings cards which beautifully portray the  views, buildings, flora and fauna of Wales.


I have always been interested in photography.  I was brought up on a farm in Ceredigion in West Wales, and took many photographs of the animals – goats, horses, ducks, chickens and so on.

I have continued to photograph farm animals, but I now also love to capture the beautiful Welsh landscape and local wildlife.  Over the last few years I have taken a series of photos of local views, waterfalls, flowers, fungi and insects.  I am also passionate about Welsh history and culture.  For many years I have been travelling around Wales photographing holy wells, castles, churches, the homes of famous Welsh people and so on.

I have won various competitions with my photos over the years, and I have always had positive things said about my work.  So this year, for the first time, I have decided to try and sell some of my photographs.

I am based in Blaenpennal in Ceredigion, where I have lived for most of my life.



Oriel Seren has been created by local artists who share a passion for quality hand-made arts and crafts.  We want to provide an opportunity for locals and visitors to experience excellence in art and craft.

We also offer Guest Artist exhibitions at the gallery.

Do visit us to see all the beautiful work we have on show.
