Proprietor, Denise Vickery signed the lease for Oriel Llanteglos Art Gallery in February 2020. It’s aim is to bring together the best of Welsh artists, potters, sculptors and creatives. In addition, it will display statement pieces from far afield. However, the lockdown came putting on hold all Denise’s plans.
Now, at last, Denise is delighted to add this new creative venture to existing Pembrokeshire art galleries. Llanteglos art gallery will be open 6 days a week during high season. Furthermore, its aim is to showcase both established and up and coming artists with regular exhibitions.
Local art and artists
Llanteglos Art Gallery will feature works by Welsh local as well as national artists. Amongst these, Jill Jones, based in Pembrokeshire will be exhibiting.

Said Jill. “I am delighted to display my works at Llanteglos art gallery. Denise has many years’ experience in collating vibrant and individual pieces. Indeed, she previously co-set up and ran the well-known Mimosa Gallery in Llandeilo. Involvement in her new venture at Llanteglos Art Gallery is quite a thrill for me”
Jill works exclusively from her studio in far-flung West Wales. In fact, her studio is but a stones throw from the ocean. Indeed, this nearness to Pembrokeshire’s renowned and beautiful coastline informs and inspires much of her work. In addition, Jill paints evocative images of iconic Pembrokeshire landmarks and places. In particular the distinctive cottages of the County. Jill works in oils, acrylics and water colours. She is equally adept in all three mediums.
