Found Gallery is owned by Punch & James Maughan and opened on July 4th, 2019.
The gallery offers a refreshing, diverse and encouraging stance of what a contemporary art gallery can and should be. The changing exhibition programme showcases emerging as well as established creative talent.
Having always been interested in contemporary art and ceramics Punch has enjoyed developing a space to show off the work of artists and makers that she has discovered and met over the last few years. Spread over two floors the lower gallery is often dedicated to photography.

Developing 1 Bulwark as a gallery space with offices above was a labour of love and we want to thank our architects: Sarah & Jeremy of Featherstone Young.

The exhibition programme for 2023 is:
Body & Soil: 22nd March – 22nd April
Artists Beth Flynn, Gwyn Daggett, Connor Ritchie and Emily James of Carpenter and Cloth will be exhibiting a series of works bought together through the arts, nature, craft and music.
Beth Flynn: Painter and Photographer exploring her reality whilst holding space for others to reveal their own
Gwyn Daggett: Organic furniture celebrating the aliveness of Woodcraft
Connor Ritchie: Proficient Carpenter and Woodturner offering wholesome, bespoke homeware using sustainable local timbers
Emily James of Carpenter & Cloth is sharing some of her Welsh wool unisex clothing made using traditional skills. With a passion for enduring design and soulful craftsmanship their pieces are inspired by a life lived in rural Wales.
The Concrete and The Clay: 26th April – 20th May
David Collyer FRPS is a South Wales based photographer who is currently the Royal Photographic Society’s Documentary Photographer of the Year. His landscape work, often stark, and shot on black and white film, explores the transition of the land from one state to another, and is largely concerned with the scars that man leaves behind.
Agnieszka Pohl is a Polish born studio potter, now based in North Wales who makes work which is also influenced by the landscape around her. She utilises raw clay and a layering effect, using different materials and objets trouvé to echo the strata, colours and textures of the world she sees.
The Concrete and the Clay is a joint exhibition of David’s work, made throughout Europe, and Agnieszka’s work which has been inspired by David’s photography.
Early Summer Finds: 24th May – 24th June
