New additions to the Tabernacle Collection

Clive Hicks-Jenkins has presented to MOMA WALES The Friends Gather, one of the drawings from his Mari Lwyd series, which proudly carried a Tabernacle Collection label in Clive’s recent retrospective exhibition at The National Library of Wales. As well as being extremely generous this gift cements an association with the theme that began when Clive won the Calouste Gulbenkian Welsh Art Prize at MOMA WALES.

More riches followed with the gift of three magnificent paintings by David Tress, Passing Light Off Pen Bwchdy, White in The Sun Sound (Ramsey) and Winter Above Newport.

Geoff Sansbury has also generously donated a work to the Tabernacle Collection titled ‘If I move the flowers nearer to the light will that fix it?’, which was shown as part of his Decay exhibition here at MOMA Wales in November 2011.

Such prestigious support is deeply appreciated.

All five works will form a special showing of The Tabernacle Collection in the Pulpit Room from 12 March to 28 April 2012.
