Oh yes! Husb and I are off to The Workers Gallery in Ynyshir tomorrow to set up my solo show, ‘Yr Helfa / The Hunt‘ which opens on September the 1st and carries on through to September the 24th. BUT, we’re not having an opening event, instead we’re having a HIGH TEA on Saturday September the 10th from 2 – 4.
Why not have an opening when the exhibition opens you might ask? Well, it’s because the Cynon Valley Museum and Gallery is reopening on September the 3rd after being closed for over a year. It’s now been transferred from the local authority to a trust made up of volunteers from the area. And they pinched the date I wanted for an opening tea party! Never mind, it’s great to see the Museum back in action and it gives me an extra week to make more home made jam and cakes.
The show features 42 new drawings from my travels across South Wales with archaeologist Dewi Bowen and filmmaker Melvyn Williams, drawing ancient stone monuments that are on the route of The Boar Hunt from the Mabinogion. There will also be a display of etchings and linocuts in progress based on my drawings in the field. And some of Melvyn’s short films about Dewi and myself on our hunt for wild megaliths.
So please drop in and see the show if you’re in the area and especially on Saturday 10th for lashings of tea, cake, art and Welsh hospitality.
There’s more of my art to be seen in my online Gallery in Artfinder. Please click here to visit. Thank you.
