Exhibition of Welsh art from Martin Tinney Gallery on show in Machynlleth

Works by Shani Rhys James, Karina Rosanne Barrett and Claudia Williams on display in the exhibition.

The Museum of Modern Art, Machynlleth is showing fifty pieces of Welsh art from the Martin Tinney Gallery at a special exhibition.


The exhibition can be viewed across the museum’s first floor galleries until March 5. The museum is open from Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm.


Martin Tinney Gallery was established in Cardiff in 1992 and specialises in Welsh and Wales-based artists of the highest quality, past and present. The gallery is in a 19th century townhouse in St Andrew’s Crescent giving three floors of beautiful exhibition space.


There are monthly solo exhibitions in the main gallery and a constantly changing exhibition of paintings, prints and sculpture on the other two gallery floors. The gallery also runs Oriel Tegfryn at Menai Bridge and clients include public institutions as well as many private buyers in Britain and worldwide.


It is the only Welsh gallery to exhibit regularly at major art fairs, including The London Art Fair and The 20/21 British Art Fair, and promotes Welsh art at regular exhibitions in London and further afield.


“The Martin Tinney Gallery has given us a wonderful exhibition of 50 pieces of Welsh art past and present including Augustus John, Sir Kyffin Williams, Gwilym Prichard, Kevin Sinnott, Shani Rhys James, Eleri Mills and Mary Lloyd Jones,” said Lucinda Middleton, the museum’s Richard and Ann Mayou Fund curator.


Martin Tinney said: “I am delighted to have been asked to mount an exhibition of our gallery artists at MOMA. This beautiful gallery is a beacon of quality Welsh art in Mid Wales and provides a worthy setting for the leading 20th century and contemporary Welsh artists featured in the show.”
