At last after all these months THE ART SHOP will re-open on THURSDAY 3RD SEPTEMBER just for 3 days a week to begin with. Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10am-5pm. We have completely re-organised the shop so it is now safe and much improved for you. We will be closed for online, phone and email orders from 18-29 August.

The CHAPEL… owing to these difficult times, no talks, concerts or workshops can be held yet and are all on hold. So we are opening in October. The sold out Martin Harley concert has already been re-scheduled for Friday 13 November, Fingers crossed.

We look forward to seeing you all soon and will keep you updated.

The newly re-furbished restaurant in The Angel Hotel, Abergavenny, is getting an artist’s touch, creating a theatre of dining…

Michael Harding Artist Oil Colour Raw Umber and Manganese Violet have been applied by hand to new lime plaster walls. Other areas have been painted with Unbleached Titanium Dioxide mixed with a smidgen of Sennelier Dry Pigment Yellow Ochre.

Even the frames of some artwork on the walls, such as the photographs of Welsh National Opera productions, have had a  make-over by using Raphael Acrylic Bronze with a touch of Burnt Sienna.

These photographs were taken by Graham Matthews, who was one of the main photographers for the Arts Council of Wales.

The majority of the artwork hung in The Angel Hotel has been bought from the gallery at The Art Shop.
