From the website: “Oriel Mostyn Gallery is the largest independent publicly-funded gallery in Wales. We show Welsh and international contemporary art in a programme of temporary exhibitions, each lasting around six weeks. We do not have a collection but sometimes show modern and historical work, often borrowed from major collections, notably that of National Museum Wales. Galleries and audiences: The Mostyn’s exhibition galleries have been described as among the most beautiful in Britain. In a Grade 2 listed building, they were purpose-built in 1901, are well-proportioned and are naturally-lit from above. The give approximately 200 square metres of floor space with around linear 70 metres of wall space. The current expansion will nearly double the exhibiting space and will also use natural toplighting for the main new gallery space. A large audience has developed for our activities. Our exhibitions attract some 50-55,000 visitors annually, with both a strong local following and visitors attracted from all over north Wales and elsewhere.”
