Oriel Myrddin Gallery is the main publicly funded art and craft gallery for the south-west Wales region, presenting an ambitious contemporary programme of temporary exhibitions.Use our Carmarthen road trip planning website to arrange your visit to Oriel King Street Gallery and other attractions in Carmarthen.
Located in a listed Victorian building in the centre of Carmarthen, the gallery is pivotal to the cultural energy and identity of the town. The egalitarian and aspirational principals of the organisation, that were laid down on the official opening of the Carmarthen School of Art in 1892, were transferred to the Oriel Myrddin Trust on the opening of Oriel Myrddin Gallery in 1991. These core principals remain central to the gallery activity today; the foundation of which is to operate an inclusive, free art gallery engaging, challenging and enabling local and regional visitors of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to participate in the gallery’s exhibitions and education programmes.
Oriel Myrddin Gallery is supported by The Arts Council of Wales
Oriel sy’n cael ei chyllido gan arian cyhoeddus yw Oriel Myrddin, a hi yw’r brif oriel o’i bath yn ne-orllewin Cymru. Mae gan yr oriel raglen gyfoes uchelgeisiol ac mae’n uchel ei pharch yn y sector.
Cartref Oriel Myrddin yw adeilad rhestredig o Oes Fictoria ynghanol Caerfyrddin, ac mae gan yr oriel swyddogaeth hanfodol bwysig o ran egni diwylliannol a hunaniaeth y dref. Bu i Ymddiriedolaeth Oriel Myrddin, wrth agor Oriel Myrddin ym 1991, fabwysiadu egwyddorion egalitaraidd a dyheadol Ysgol Gelf Caerfyrddin, a oedd wedi eu datgan gyntaf yn ystod agoriad swyddogol yr Ysgol Gelf ym 1892. Mae’r egwyddorion sylfaenol hyn yn dal i fod yn elfen greiddiol o waith Oriel Myrddin: fe’i sefydlwyd i fod yn oriel gelf gynhwysol a heriol y gall ymwelwyr lleol a rhanbarthol o bob oedran, cefndir a gallu fynd iddi, yn ddi-dâl, i gyfranogi o arddangosfeydd a rhaglenni addysg yr oriel.

Just caught the fabulous exhibition 'sea vessel' - Peter Bodenham/ Nigel Goldsmith - really beautifully curated, a warm welcome, and some wonderful treAsures inside. Thank you
Offers a variety of interesting courses for all ages. Hosts some thought provoking exhibitions - some raising the age old question of: What is art? One person's art is the next person's unmade bed....
