I held a ‘Tea With The Artist’ event at The Workers Gallery at the weekend, part of my solo show “Yr Helfa / The Hunt“. It was lovely and lots of people came along, from as far afield as Bristol and Birmingham, Cardiff and Swansea as well as local people.
That meant a lot to the artists who run the gallery, Chris and Gayle, who have worked so hard to get this off the ground in the village’s closed-down library.
It was hectic and I tried to get around and talk to everyone who came.
And there were people of all ages too, which is really lovely. I don’t like those evening private views which are full of posing types clinging on to a glass of wine – I like to see loads of different people having a nice cuppa tea and enjoying the company and the art.
And the cakes. Oh yes. Home made, of course. Traditional bara brith, Victoria Sandwich, some parmesan biscuits, a lemon and elderflower drizzle sponge and dairy-free, gluten-free orange polenta cake. It all went.
So, thanks to everyone who came along and to those who sent their support, I really appreciate it. And if you missed it, the show runs until September the 24th.
