Hello and Welcome

Welcome to the web site of the Friends of Oriel y Parc, an organisation set up by local residents to support and promote this wonderful facility and it’s aims. We work with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority to encourage the development and use of the facilities afforded by Oriel y Parc. Event publicity and promotion is one of our critical roles; providing and distributing educational and advertising material supporting Oriel y Parc. We are committed to furthering the interest and involvement of the local community in Oriel y Parc, the facilities, events and exhibitions on offer.

We support the continuing work of Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales, in providing collections to be viewed at Oriel y Parc on a rotational basis.This includes original works from the Graham Sutherland Collection previously on show at Picton Castle.

The Friends’ Art Library

We are delighted to report that the audit and re-cataloguing of the Library has now been completed. An updated list of books and a guide to the use of the Library is now available on this website - see ‘The Library’ link on the navigation bars on each page. The Library is only open to the Friends of Oriel y Parc as a dedicated artistic resource, and we hope that Members will continue to make use of it, and at nearly 500 books strong, it is an impressive and extensive collection.

Artist in Residence

5 December 2015 to 6 March 2016.
