Pembrokeshire's an arty kind of place
Arts & crafts in Pembrokeshire
Artists and craftspeople gravitate to this part of south-west Wales, attracted by the seascapes, quality of light and that special Celtic magic that comes with the territory.
Two must-visits are the gallery at Oriel y Parc, St Davids and Tenby Museum and Gallery, home to world-class artists such as Graham Sutherland who described Pembrokeshire a ‘land of exultant strangeness’ and other artistic superstars Augustus and Gwen John, Kyffin Williams and John Piper to name just a few.
[Workshop Wales] This hidden gem, more than simply a space to view art, is a moving experience that relaxes and delights.
