Edward Morris was a Chartered Physiotherapist, working at both the Machynlleth and Tywyn Hospitals and the district. He developed quickly as a keen watercolour artist, giving painting tuition classes and was appointed as President of the Aberdyfi Art Society
Edward developed a keen interest in painting in watercolour and in 1967 he and his wife Kay established the Gallery by hanging paintings in the dining room of their Bed and Breakfast on the sea front.
He painted prolifically in any free time and while on holiday and soon mastered the difficult medium of watercolour.
Alongside displaying work at The Gallery, he had paintings accepted at:
- The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours - exhibiting at The Mall Galleries London.
- The Royal Society of Marine Artists.
- The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.
- The Royal Cambrian Academy.
1982 - Edward's daughter Claire and her husband Glyn returned from working in Hong Kong to take over the running of the business.
1994 - The Gallery moved to The Square in Aberdyfi, where it remains today.
The Gallery is the longest established retail business in Aberdyfi to remain in the same family.
