Modern & Contemporary British & Welsh Art

The Kilvert Gallery first opened its doors in 1986, at Ashbrook House in Clyro, near Hay on Wye, the former residence of the Victorian diarist Francis Kilvert. The creation of artists Elizabeth Organ and Eugene Fisk, the gallery was a work of art in itself, as well as a stunning home and unexpected exhibition space.

After Lizzie’s death in 2009, Eugene moved across the river to Hay-on-Wye, continuing to paint and retaining large collection of the art and artefacts that he and Lizzie had accrued over the years. These he referred to as ‘The Kilvert Collection’, with the intention that it should be archived and exhibited, and that The Kilvert Gallery would continue anew, under the direction of fellow artist and curator Kate Milsom.

Over the last 5 years, partnering with selected arts venues in Wales, the gallery has continued to show strands of the collection whilst a permanent gallery space was in development. We are delighted that our new venue will be opening this summer in the heart of Wales, at The Bradleys Building in Llandrindod Wells.
