I am very pleased to be exhibiting with the National Trust this Christmas with some fabulous artists! The grounds of Dinefwr are amazing, spectacular vistas around every corner and deers and cattle a plenty! The grounds are just behind the beautiful multi-coloured town of Llandeilo, which has great antique shops, galleries and independent shops and eateries!
My deer print, The fox nest and a badger in the garden shall all be there to welcome you!
PPSSTT! this exhibition is open for Dinefwr’s Christmas Fair from 22-44th October and shall be open to the public thereafter, although there is , as stated an official opening on the 30th!
Welcome to Printopia, opening on Thursday night at Volcano Theatre, Swansea High Street, Roll up, Roll up for an array of beautful original prints and artworks to tantalise your senses!
I have some work there too! Alongside many, many wonderful artist’s and collegues.
Opening Thursday 6-9pm and runs until the end of July.
The Swansea Open returned last year, it’s always held at the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery in Swansea, it’s Swansea’s main gallery and has had a tradition of holding an Open Competition for many years, the gallery re-opened last year after being closed for several years for refurbishment. This year I submitted two works-the maximum allowed and they both got it! I was amazed actually, as I almost didn’t submit one of them!
My ‘Badger in the Garden’ and ‘Numbat Antics’ prints shall be on show, most works are for sale, the show opens on Saturday-Sir Peter Blake is opening the show…and his own of collages and illustrations is opening at the same time, so that’s really exciting!
It runs from the 8th to the 2nd of February from this year… into next year!
I have work in both of these shows I’m afraid one has opened already..oops! That’s Y Lle Print at Bay Art Cardiff, on until this weekend, the other is opening this Friday 6pm in Swansea at the Taliesin– Ceri Richards Gallery.
Well, as always this year it’s been a very busy few months, I recently started my new job working as technician to Printmaker Fiona Kelly while she is Artist in Residence at Swansea Print Workshop for the rest of our Drawn to Print project. Which is very exciting!
Also just this week I handed some work and Christmas cards into the Ceri Richards Gallery at the Taliesin Arts Centre in Swansea for their Christmas show and also received news that some of my work is also on show at Oriel Ger-y-Fenai, in LLanfairpwll on Anglesey, North Wales.
This show runs now until 23rd of November.
Many thanks to Eirian Llwyd and www.theoriginalprintplace.co.uk for that!
