Ali Scott

"As a child I drew obsessively and painted with a passion. After Art College in the late seventies, I made my home in Wales where at last, I felt a sense of belonging.
For many years I facilitated art in a variety of therapeutic settings, working with groups and individuals. Alongside my work, I continued to explore my own creative process and enjoyed painting, drawing, printmaking, textiles and sculpture. Then I discovered felt making."[find out more…]

 

Aneurin Jones

Aneurin's work is one with rural Dyfed. The work seems to grow organically from the land and is seen as iconic art in the eyes of so many. There is a timeless quality to the work - the individual in solitute, a gathering of country people, the sanctity of the earth and the flabouyancy of the Welsh Cob.[website]

Huw Williams

Originally from the small seaside town of Llanfairfechan, Conwy, sandwiched between large mountains and the Carneddau Menai Strait, my early creative inspiration came from this unique landscape with its dramatic contrast between the highlands and the sea, the magical effect of light as the sun sets behind Anglesey and the Penmaenmawr mountain quarry spreading its monolithic shadow over the town and its people. I began my studies in 1980 arts foundation course in Bangor led by the late Peter Prendergast, before going on to Loughborough Art College to study for an honours degree in Fine Art [1981-84]. I decided to specialise in painting and printing during my time in college and the interest in this particular craft has continued to this day. I began my career as an art teacher in Tregaron Secondary School [now known as Henry Richard School] following the recent retirement of Ogwyn Davies in 1985. I have had the honour of teaching generations of youngsters from the Tregaron area and have made my home in the Betws Bledrws area. The gentle beauty of this agricultural heartland provides me with visual inspiration and I adore the impact of the moons romantic light rising above 'Long Wood, the sunrise behind the hills of Llanddewi Brefi and the company of wild birds as I cycle to Tregaron every morning.

 

Eurfryn Lewis

”Originally from Tregaron, I studied at Carmarthen College of Art, before going on to earn a degree in Fine Art at Cardiff University, specialising in printing. I’m now an Art and Design teacher , and have been head of department at Ysgol Gyfun Gwynllyw in Pontypool since 2002. I use various printing techniques in my work, as well as working with oil, charcoal and multimedia. The themes vary but my inspiration comes mainly from my strong Welsh heritage. The work includes characters from the Welsh countryside, male choirs and rugby. I’m in my element when working on a piece of art and hope that people can see a clear link between the work I produce and Wales. The images are a celebration of Wales today and the images are an expression of my own personal experiences in the countryside, choir practice, and of course the Rugby pitch! The work presented in this exhibition is very diverse. It includes a large number of Fine Art techniques . All the work in this exhibition is connected with my square mile, the town of where I was brought up, Tregaron - including views from the church, the square in Tregaron and portraits of my father and his friends. Despite having now lived in Cardiff for years, the influence of Tregaron as I remember it in my childhood still inspires me. It is a great pleasure to have the honour of exhibiting alongside my art teacher Mr Huw Williams— a remarkable artist and teacher who continues to strongly influence my own teaching career as well as my art.”

Suzanne Lanchbury

It wasn’t until her foundation course in 1995 that Suzanne Lanchbury was introduced to and fell in love with clay. This wonderfully tactile and immediately expressive material suited her way of working. After graduating from Camberwell College of Arts with a degree in Ceramics, Suzanne set up a studio in a railway arch in London. She now works in the beautiful and inspiring landscape of rural Wales, making stoneware sculptures describing animal and bird forms. Each piece is hand built. Surface texture and decoration are very important. Suzanne’s previous work with textiles is a major influence on her technique. Textures are created using impressed fabrics, wallpapers and found objects. Anything from a piece of lace used to create the reptilian skin of a chameleon, to an old dishcloth for an armadillo’s scales will be scavenged, saved and used.[website]
