Hanbury Road Gallery was a project of seven exhibitions which ran over a period of 8 months in 52 Hanbury Rd, Bargoed, between August 2015 and April 2016 thanks to grants from the Arts Council of Wales (Welsh Government and Lottery Funding), Caerphilly Arts Development and Bargoed Town Council.
We have now left Bargoed, but will continue running exhibitions in the Valleys and beyond - keep your eyes peeled for updates on our blog, Facebook and Twitter!
