g39 is home to the largest artist-run gallery in Wales, a creative community for the visual arts. Established in Cardiff, g39 became a charity in 2019 and works as a bridge between communities, the public and artists. Artists are at the heart of the activity of g39. From residencies to training and mentoring, informal gatherings, or realising the most ambitious of exhibitions - our aim is to encourage and enable every person whose ambition it is to pursue a visual art practice.

There are lots of ways you can support g39 and our programme,
without it costing you anything.

We’ve joined easyfundraising. Basically, if you shop online but through their portal, they donate a % to us. From Screwfix to ebay, Ethical Superstore to durex you can do your bit. Or if you’re driving to Cardiff and are going to pay for parking, why not book our carpark on Justpark with us?

You can donate at any time too through our new Donorfy account, or tapping a card on the donation point at g39, or just dropping some coins in the donation boxes next time you visit. It’s always uncomfortable asking for donations when there are so many many things to support out there - but all of this helps keep our resources and support programmes free for those that need them.

This website was born back in 2006, and although it’s wearing some fancy new fonts it still struggles sometimes.

If there are problems, let us know and we’ll try to fix them while we fundraise for a new one.

g39 is a registered charity, Reg no. 1181492, and we rely on a lot of different helping hands. If you want to support us, please donate, or you can help by visiting the market. We are always grateful for volunteer support too.

If you want to engage with us in Welsh you can switch from any page by clicking on the link above. If you're a learner, bydd newid rhwng y ddau yn ffordd dda o ymarfer - flipping between the two is a good way to practice. You can contact us in either English neu Gymraeg. Sign up to be kept up to date by post or email.

Access at g39

g39 is housed in a large open warehouse with all public spaces on the ground floors and with no indoor steps. The main entrance has no steps and the space is all on one level. There is a single low step at the side door.

There is a carpark at the front of the building with spaces for visitors. The gallery space, screening room and studios are all fully accessible to people in wheelchairs.

g39 does not have a hearing loop installed.

The exhibitions at g39 are varied and can often look and feel different to a traditional museum style gallery. The form of the artworks can be varied and unpredictable, it’s not uncommon for there to be loud or repetitive noises, and low light spaces. Please get in touch if you would like to know more about what to expect with any particular exhibitions or events that we are hosting.

At the rear of the building are studios. If people with access needs are selected for a residency/fellowship programme or are installing work for an exhibition, studio & workshop spaces can be adapted to meet their needs

In the winter the gallery space can get cold. At g39 we welcome service animals.

warp Library

Now we're open again the warp Library is open, a de-instututional resource for all. The collection mainly houses artist books, arts-related reference books, zines and pamphlets. These span from the socio-political to the experimental, from 60s avant-garde retrospectives to contemporary exhibition publications; and hopefully everything in between. This in an ever-developing, growing collection.
