BayArt is artist-led at its heart, embedded within a beautiful, intimate, creative space in one of Cardiff Bay’s busy streets. Butetown Artists occupy 16 studios above the gallery, along with a studio flat suitable as an artist residency/research space. BayArt gallery exists to support fine art practice, through offering a platform for exhibitions to a range of emerging and mid career artists, from Wales and further afield. BayArt also offers interpretation of its exhibitions for a range of different audiences through artists talks, seminars and workshops. Key to every show is the invitation to schools to work with the gallery on projects to develop children’s and teacher’s understanding of contemporary art. The approach is one of inclusivity and accessibility, seeing the gallery as a creative space, in which art can be experienced and explored.Put Bay Art Gallery on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Cardiff route planning site.

Visited to have a look at an exhibition about nuclear energy in North Wales. Interesting place, friendly and helpful staff. Art works were well displayed, enjoyed my time there..
A very small and quiet place. Seen some interesting and exciting exhibitions here, but always small and uninformative.
