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 Guest Artist for August 2018 is Nick Coldham.  We are delighted to be showing a selection of his Landscapes.

Initially training as a fine artist, Nick went on to gain a first class honours degree in 3D Design, then a Masters Degree in Industrial Design. Following a successful career as a designer in London, in 2007 he opted out of the London rat-race and moved with his wife and daughter back to North Wales for an altogether better quality of life. Living in the hills of Snowdonia in an old farm house, he is now able to fully focus on painting and drawing.

Nick works mostly in watercolours and pastels, but his background in commercial and architectural design has lent itself very well to the detailed pen and ink style that can be seen in much of his work, in particular his book illustrations.

His landscapes are notable for their dramatic skies, and with a few strokes of a brush or a pen he is able to capture the character of old buildings, the delicacy of a tree, the flight of a bird, or the cragginess of a rock face.

Initially displaying his work at local Art Society exhibitions such as the Aberdyfi Art Society, CRYD and the Meirionnydd Artists Society, in 2009 Nick helped create the Dyfi Arts Guild based at Y Plas, Machynlleth.  In the summer of 2012 an opportunity arose to rent a vacant shop in Aberdyfi. Nick and several other professional artists held a ‘pop-up’ exhibition under the name ‘ArtWorks’. Its popularity and success inspired Nick and his wife Kate to turn this into a permanent venture and ArtWorks Aberdyfi was born, a brand new gallery was built in Aberdyfi, which opened in April 2014.  Nick has a permanent exhibition in Artworks and is exhibiting with us in Oriel Seren as a Guest Artist until 30th June.
