At Cynon Valley Museum, we host a programme of temporary exhibitions across our two temporary gallery spaces, Mezzanine Gallery and Lower Gallery and our online gallery Exhibition at Home. We are proud to support local artists, artistans and craft people, showcasing the best talent from the Cynon Valley.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are unable to open the Mezzanine Gallery, we are constantly reviewing the situation and will reopen the gallery when it is safe to do so.

Current Exhibitions

Colin Davies ‘Out Of The Blue’

The Welsh Group ‘Across Two Valleys’

29.10.2022 – 26.11.2022

The Welsh Group / Y Grŵp Cymreig’s  ‘Across Two Valleys – One Exhibition, Two Venues’ ‘Ar Draws Dau Gwm -Un arddangosfa , dau leoliad’ Cynon Valley Museum & Red House, Merthyr – Amgueddfa Cwm Cynon a Redhouse

The Welsh Group is an artists’ collective, with the purpose of exhibiting and “giving a voice” to the visual arts in Wales. The Group’s exhibition Across Two Valleys which was due to show in May 2020 at the Cynon Valley Museum and Redhouse, Merthyr Tydfil, has been rescheduled for November 2022. The members responded positively to the theme and their interpretation of across two valleys is wide in its subject matter and depiction. Visit online here

Using mainly oil and acrylic paints, Colin’s rich and expressive style is created with the generous application of paint using a swift, tumultuous sweep of a palette knife, often followed with more detailed brushwork application. Inspired by the beautiful coastline and mountains of Wales, much of his work depicts the power and vitality of the ocean. His atmospheric representation of the drama and rugged beauty of the Gower coastline, in particular, is regularly exhibited and increasingly collected across the UK and internationally.
