The museum has frequent changing art shows in the New Art Gallery. Many of these are sales exhibitions where original works of art by contemporary artists can be purchased. The gallery shows works in various mediums including paintings, photographs, ceramics, glassware and sculpture. Among the many artists who have exhibited are: Aneurin and Meirion Jones; John Uzzell Edwards; Charley Uzzell Edwards aka Pure Evil; Philip Sutton RA; John Knapp Fisher; David Bellamy; Mick Morgan; Claudia Williams; Gwilym Prichard; Andrea Kelland; Geoff Yeomans; Grahame Hurd-Wood; Susan Sands; Steve Robinson; Jackie Morris; Darren Yeadon; Denis Curry; Alan Salisbury; Guy Manning; Olivia Argent; David Petersen; Mark Raggett and Elizabeth Haines. In 2014 the museum exhibited the work of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours and in 2015 the Royal Watercolour Society of Wales.  We continue to work with artists and societies of great acclaim.  In 2018 we were fortunate to have the first ever solo art exhibition by Manic Street Preachers bassist and lyricist Nicky Wire, where James Dean Bradfield performed two songs at the official opening.  We will continue to provide relevant, interesting and challenging art exhibitions and the diary for the remainder of 2019 and 2020 is already looking an exciting prospect!
