Here you will find information about the collections housed at Plas Brondanw, including the Susan Williams-Ellis archive, and the work of Sarah Nechamkin, as well as an extensive library of books belonging to Amabel and Clough Williams-Ellis, which is displayed in the library at Plas Brondanw.
Also here are biographies of Clough Williams-Ellis and his wife Amabel and their three children, and information about Plas Brondanw itself. Our collections curator is Rachel Hunt, if you have any questions regarding archival material or if you are looking for anything in particular, she will be glad to help you.
We have decided to set a theme each year, going forwards. Items from the Susan Williams-Ellis archive will be curated according to the theme for the year, and this will also be the theme for the open and young open exhibitions. We invite artists who wish to have solo or group shows to consider responding to the theme, if they feel inspired to do so, although this is not a requirement. Events will also be curated to respond to the theme, where appropriate. The themes are deliberately broad and may be interpreted in any way that the artist feels is appropriate. The themes for the next five years are outlined below:
2026: Animal / Vegetable / Mineral
2028: The Sea
