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 Guest Artist is Jean Napier arps

Jean specialises in creative landscape photography and the magnificent scenery of the Snowdonia National Park where she lives is the main inspiration for her work. Man’s influences on the landscape are a recurring theme in her exhibitions, images and books.

She enjoys exploring the Welsh landscape and the camera helps her to select elements that embody the experience of being ‘in the ‘place’. Her primary motivation as a photographer is to promote appreciation of the versatility and creativity of photography as an art form – photography can be more than just a method of ‘recording’ moments.

She also believes passionately in ‘art-for-all’, giving everyone who wishes to, the opportunity of seeing their work displayed in a public space and she runs art projects and workshops with people of all ages and abilities throughout the UK.

Jean is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society and holds an MA Distinction in Photographic Studies. 

Jean is best known for her photographic three books on the rivers of Wales: “A Tale of Two Rivers – Mawdach & Dyfi”; “Snowdonia River Tales – Glaslyn & Dwyryd” and “The River Conwy – Source to Sea” and her many exhibitions; her latest book is “Rhinogydd-Ancient Routes and Old Roads” which documents this magnificent mountainous area of North Wales looking at the relics left by man through the ages.

Please visit her website for a selection of her images.
