Castell Coch hosts Welsh art exhibition

Castell Coch

Castell Coch is hosting an exhibition of artwork focusing on historic Welsh landmarks throughout this week in an attempt to get us all drawing.

The picturesque Castle, built in the 1870’s, has filled its Victorian styled rooms with artwork of famous Welsh sites as part of this year’s Big Draw campaign, which aims to encourage drawing through inspiration.

The restored castle is a fantastic sight after a steep climb from the road.

Displaying the work within the castle is something Beth Giles, owner of the Giles Gallery, believes benefits the feel of the exhibition, “Displaying the works in a site of such historical importance really helps bring the artwork to life.” 

The artwork on display is produced by students of the Giles Gallery of Pontyclun, who are on hand, should your inspirational urges force you to put pencil to paper.
