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 December  2018 Guest Artist is Peter Lloyd who is showing his beautiful  Landscapes, paintings of Trees and Seascapes.


I live in the beautiful Pennant valley and much of my inspiration comes from my immediate surroundings. I am also close to the moorland around Glaslyn and Bugeilyn and spend a lot of time walking my dogs there.
I am largely self taught although I have attended some Lifelong Learning courses run by Aberystwyth University. Seascapes are another subject I enjoy and three years ago I travelled to Holland to paint with Roos Schuring a seascape artist I greatly admire. Other artists whose work I enjoy include Joan Eardley and Kyffin Williams.

My paintings are a mix of plein air and studio. I particularly enjoy the challenge of painting in front of the subject in oils.

I am a founder member of Arwystli Artists, a small group of like-minded artists living and working in Mid Wales. Arwystli Artists can be found on facebook.







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.
