Rain And Racing In The Rhondda

26 Mar

From the outside looking in through a work in progress from Chris Williams

Husb and I had a day off today, a rare thing when you’re self-employed and we went off to The Workers Gallery in Ynyshir for an afternoon of slot-car (Scalextric) racing with our young nephew. It was pouring down outside but we were warm and having a whale of a time inside, surrounded by gorgeous art.


Artists Gayle Rogers and Chris Williams set up this little jewel of a gallery just over a year ago when the village library was closed by ‘austerity’ cutbacks. It’s a fabulous place to visit and so is the Rhondda Valley, where Ynyshir is situated, with spectacular scenery. Gayle has her studio up at one end and the rest is divided into two gallery spaces, one for a rolling programme of contemporary art shows and the other for a permanent collection of the gallery artists.

    Funny to connect slo car racing and art. It seems you’ll never a day without art around you. 🙂 Have a lovely day.

      One of the gallery owners brought out his Scalextric set for the day. It was a good idea because it filled the gallery and was great fun
