In 2017 Wales celebrates its past, present, and future with attractions, events and activities in legendary locations across Wales.

To coincide with this thematic year, The National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth proudly presents a new exhibition – Legends!

From the 18th of March, there will be an opportunity for visitors to come 'face to face' with Welsh legends from the National Portrait Collection. Highlights of the exhibition include a portrait of Aneurin Bevan by Andrew Vicari, Gwynfor Evans by David Griffiths, Ruth Jones by Malcolm Gwyon along with all the Wales Football team painted by Goal Keeper Owain Fôn Williams to name just a few.

Owain Fôn Williams said:

"It is a huge honour for me to have the opportunity to showcase my artwork as part of the Legends exhibition at the National Library. Wales has a wealth of legends, and I cannot think of a better way than through the medium of art to honour and remember them. I hope that the ‘Together Stronger' legends bring back great memories. Thank you very much to The National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth for the opportunity "

The exhibition is open Monday - Saturday 9.30 a.m – 5.00 p.m.
