About
We are temporarily closed until early December to carry out urgent building repairs. Visitors are requested to wear a face covering - unless medically exempt. We are a small gallery, workshop & studio space where you can meet resident artists, see their work and the work of other selected artists & designers. We have a great bookshop stocked with titles published in Wales, self published, photobooks & graphic novels. We sell a small range of handmade gifts, lovespoons and furniture alongside paintings, drawings and prints. We also stock some quality art supplies & stationery. We are on the 132 Cardiff-Maerdy bus route, 20 mins walk from the Porth railway station & 30-40mins drive from Cardiff or 1 hour from Swansea. Want to visit outside our normal hours? Browse our art book community library? Get in touch today. See you soon!

A Welcome in the Hillsides
Sep 2019 • Family
Always a warm welcome at The Workers Gallery. A real hidden gem and not your average gallery! They have regular Community events and have had some amazing exhibitions. Definitely worth making the trip- Gayle and Chris are very welcoming and always happy to talk about what is happening in the gallery at any time.

Not your typical Gallery
Aug 2019 • Couples
It’s wonderful to visit a gallery and get the opportunity to speak with the artists who exhibit there. There is always such a warm welcome from Gayle and Chris, and a diverse range of art to peruse. I always manage to leave with something in my hand, or an eye on something for the future! Highly recommend a visit here, you will not be disappointed.

A gem in the Rhondda
May 2019 • Solo
Fantastic gallery with a wide range of diverse and interesting work exhibited - all at reasonable prices. Supportive and wonderfully friendly and down to earth staff.
A brilliant hub / community space for all. Gayle and Chris are tremendously supportive of artists and provide a range of opportunities for creatives and the local community. Check out their monthly WAM events - not to be missed.

A Little Gem
May 2019 • Solo
I visit the Gallery as often as I can and have loved each and every exhibition. The welcome is always warm and as well as the latest show there is always an excellent selection of quite unique cards. Gayle and Chris are very supportive of local artists and initiatives and we always have really interesting conversations!

A little gem nestled away up the valleys
Feb 2019
This is a must-see whenever I'm in the area. The gallery is welcoming and unpretentious yet shows the highest standards of contemporary art, from Welsh, UK and international artists.

A lively and interesting place
Jun 2018 • Couples
We received such a warm welcome at this gallery and workshop. There was an interesting mix of work exhibited much of which was on sale at reasonable prices. It was also proving a lively hub for community activities, today a group of ladies were involved in a sewing workshop. Tea and biscuits were provided too, thank you.
We were lucky enough to meet Chris Williams, the designer and maker Bard’s Chair which will be awarded at this years Eisteddfod.
The Workers Gallery will be a venue for the unofficial Rhondda Arts Festival Fringe 29th-30th June
