The Lion Street Gallery opened in 2011 and we were fortunate enough to be rated as one of the best galleries in Wales by the Culture Trip website. We are only 50 yards from the clock tower in the famous book town of Hay-on-Wye . We mainly promote artists who work in Wales and the Borders. There are regular group shows throughout the year, showcasing both established Welsh artists , as well as our carefully chosen up and coming talent. You can follow us on both Instagram and Facebook
Erwood Station Gallery was opened in 2014 and is our Applied Arts Gallery, only 20 minutes from Hay and just 4 miles from Builth Wells.

All housed within three 1870’s railway carriages. Erwood has its own website http://www.erwoodstation.com

The Lion Street Gallery has a small ramp at the front door , there are three connected rooms, the first, and largest, is all on one level, the other two spaces are accessed by one step and two steps respectively.
Erwood Station Gallery, is 90% on one level , we have a large open plan atrium which then joins three railway carriages from the 1870’s. These carriages are accessed by ramps which a person on a wheelchair or mobility scooter would need assistance to access as they are too steep an incline.

Brent Blair – my background:
I have a degree in Fine Art from Kingston, specialised at that time in painting and building environments. In my twenties, I exhibited several times at the Mandela and the Arnhem Galleries in London.
When I first started out, I was lucky enough to work in the film and TV industry in special effects. I have helped create costumes for Starlight Express, transformed people into werewolves with prosthetic makeup and even worked as an animatronics creative on the film ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ at Pinewood studios. I was part of a team that built the monster plant’s mechanical vines.
With the film industry’s recession in 1989, I then changed career and eventually established a consultancy in the West End of London that specialised in managing and promoting creative people’s careers in advertising and design. I was the managing director of this business for 18 years, until I recently decided to sell the business to a group of employees and move to Wales.
I have always had a passion for the Brecon Beacons and have finally made the break from London. Having recently moved to this wonderful part of the country, it’s now my aim to use my expertise, combined with my creative background, to actively promote the very best contemporary artists through our three galleries. We will be holding regular group shows and we will be promoting both established artist along with our carefully chosen up and coming talent.
