Coming Up Fast!

The Hunt Rose Davies poster

My very first solo show is coming up in September in the fabulous Workers Gallery in Ynyshir in the Rhondda Valley.  It’s a terrific gallery run by illustrator Gayle Rogers and sculptor Chris Williams who took over the old library in the village when it was closed at short notice due to austerity cutbacks and I’m so pleased that the stones will get their debut there.

planning

 

It’s not all about art. There’s so much planning to do for a solo show. Husb and I took some time to do our forward planning earlier this week and went a bit mad with the sticky Post It notes, but we now have a clear plan for the next three months. I’d better get cracking!

 

I have spent the past few months travelling across South Wales with Rhondda-born archaeologist Dewi Bowen and Swansea film maker Melvyn Williams, hunting the wild megalith, accompanied by my portable drawing board, portfolio of Fabriano paper and a bag full of assorted artist’s materials.  Dewi is researching his latest book on Neolithic monuments and Melvyn is making a documentary film of our literary and artistic adventures. We are following the legendary trail of the boar hunt, y Twrch Trwyth from the Mabinogion, recording the Bronze Age ancestral stones that those ancient hunters would have encountered.
