Art & Architecture

The local landscape has been inspiring creative minds for centuries.

Fancy something modern? Check out the regular art exhibitions at Dolgellau and the Museum of Modern Art, Machynlleth with its annual arts festival.

How about something a bit older? See architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis’s creative landscape design dramatically brought to life in a series of outdoor rooms at Plas Brondanw. Or visit a church. Check out Basque-style St Philip’s at Caerdeon; 13th century St Mary and St Bodfon’s Chuch, Llanaber with panoramic views over Cardigan Bay; or St Mark’s at Brithdir, a Grade 1 Listed Arts and Crafts church complete with vivid paintwork and intricate carvings.
