Mud, Megaliths and Crazy Welsh Ponies

12 Sep


Filmmaker Melvyn Williams in conversation with prehistorian Dewi Bowen and artist Rose Davies (that’s me) with lashings of cake!

19:00 to 20:30 on Friday the 23rd of September at The Workers Gallery, 99, Ynyshir Road, Ynyshir, RCT, CF39 0EN.

Coming soon – cake and conversation, art and archaeology, mountains and megaliths, history and hailstorms…..all at the lovely Workers Gallery. Melvyn has been following Dewi and me across the wild places of South Wales since February, through mud, muck and mire, tracking down megaliths on the legendary Trail of the Boar Hunt, Y Twrch Trwyth, from the tales of the Mabinogion.

Dewi has been researching his new book on these ancient monuments, ‘Hunting The Wild Megalith’ while I have been drawing these incredible stones for my solo show ‘The Hunt / Yr Helfa’ at The Workers Gallery.

And all the while, Melvyn has been walking with us, across the Neolithic Welsh landscape, filming the art, the archaeology and the awe-inspiring environment, fending off wild Welsh ponies determined to liberate the lunch boxes.


“Why the long face?” (groan!)

Please join us for an evening of conversation, tea and cake in this lovely gallery. My exhibition of drawings will be finishing on the 24th.
