Just celebrated three years at my inspired 2 collect gallery in Carmarthen. During this time, I have been invited for solo exhibitions at Y Ffwrness Theatre Llanelli called ‘Creative Journeys’ and ‘Colours Drew Me In’ at The National Assembly of Wales Cardiff Bay. Also, group shows at the Powerhouse Gallery Llandysul, Swansea Festival of Stitch Waterfront Museum; Fishguard Arts Society Tregwynt Mansion and Art at Waunifor Maes Y Crugiau. Hence my need to work off site occasionally. No wonder, time has flown so quickly!
S4C TV filmed for two hours in my gallery for a four minute slot on Prynhawn Da. Yes – I speak Welsh too. Hapus i siarad Cymraeg. Recently been involved in offering S4C ideas for future programmes and as an audience member for ‘Pawb Ei Farn’ too (bit like BBC’s Question Time).
Intaglio Strati workshops have continued with 1 or 2 people at a time in the gallery. Most participants create up to three artworks. They learn about design, colour, fabrics and how to transform a painting or photograph into a textile picture or art quilt.
Please see pages ‘Exhibitions’ and ‘Collections’ for more details.
