Renovation Work

The Library is open to the public as usual during the renovation programme. For all the latest information about the work and how it may have an effect on services, visit our Building Works page.

Come and explore the striking new additions to our contemporary Welsh art collection.  From geometric abstraction to contemporary impressionism, this exhibition showcases a wide range of styles from twentieth and twenty-first century Welsh artists. Our collection is increasing in strength with ongoing purchases and donations from generous benefactors and this is a representative selection of our recent acquisitions.

Artists include, Iwan Bala, Mary Lloyd Jones, Elfyn Lewis, Paul Peter Piech, Ceri Richards, Lisa Eurgain Taylor and Ernest Zobole, Sarah Carvell (image above).

Exhibition closure: The Collecting Contemporary exhibition will be closed from 27 July 2019 as renovation work is carried out in the Library's Main Hall and Upper Central Hall. We will use our social media accounts and this page to inform visitors of when it is likely to reopen once this information is available.
