I am very much enjoying working with artists Angela James, Kerry Collison, Arthur Thomas, Julie Hutton and Keziah Ferguson in the process of putting together an group exhibition at the most beautiful venue, Powerhouse, which is overlooking the Teifi in Llandysul.
Based on the work that people have been showing me, I think this is going to be a really wonderful show, and I hope you’ll be able to come along. For those who won’t be able to make it, I’ll put some photos up here, once we’ve opened.
This is a group show by six emerging artists who are recent graduates of Carmarthen School of Art. We work in different materials – drawing, ceramics, sculpture, print making and painting. We are unified in our thoughtful attention to material qualities, and in our questioning and searching at the boundaries of our disciplines.
Our show is an exploration of the transformations that occur in the everyday and the natural world: how weather, seasons, circumstances and time break down and transform matter; and how our material acts of drawing, tearing, weaving, casting, assembling and building can transform our view of our world. We question what it is that we love, value, preserve, remember. Many of the works are vessels: holding imaginative spaces open; containing the possibility of small transformations.
Our show is at Pwerdy / Powerhouse in Llandysul from 20th October to 2nd November 2021 Tuesday – Saturday 10 – 4pm, Sunday 11-3pm
Launch: 21st October 4-7 pm
“Meet the artists”: Weds 27th October 1-4 pm : an informal event where you can meet the artists and chat over tea and cake.
All are welcome – especially children and well behaved dogs!
