Art Central Gallery is now open on Mondays


Published Thursday 23 January 2014


The Vale of Glamorgan Council's prestigious art gallery, Art Central, is hosting the HINENI exhibition to commemorate the Holocaust.


On Monday 27 January the gallery will open to the public to mark Holocaust Memorial Day and thereafter doors will open daily, Monday to Saturday from 10am until 4pm.


You are invited to come along on Holocaust Memorial Day to show your support and consider the multitude of journeys people have endured. HINENI, meaning ‘Here I Am’ in Hebrew offers an extraordinary insight into individual lives.  


Cllr Gwyn John, Cabinet Member for Arts and Culture, said "We are delighted to be opening the doors of the gallery to the public for an extra day and hope that more people will take the opportunity to visit our fabulous venue to see our excellent exhibitions.” 


The future programme includes;

  • Barry poet and writer Professor Tony Curtis will mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day
  • Penarth based World War Two artist Ray Howard Jones
  • Swansea based contemporary artist and painter George Little
  • An exclusive summer exhibition, by the Welsh Group and American based, International Society of Experimental Artists
  • Cardiff photographer Jon Poutney to commemorate World War One
  • The gallery is also recruiting volunteers to help with the day to day operation of the gallery.

So if you have some spare time, have an interest in the arts, enjoy meeting people and would like to gain experience of working in a gallery we would love to hear from you. Please contact Josephine Sowden, 



Art Central is situated within Barry Town Hall, King Square, Barry CF63 4RW. Entry to the gallery is via Barry County Library and is situated at the back on the ground floor.
