Liz Rothwell

Looking Back

21 October 2017 to 25 November 2017

Liz Rothwell moved from Manchester to Machynlleth in 1980, drawn by the beautiful scenery of the Dyfi Valley. The ancient oak woods are her inspiration, with their gestural forms, bark patterns, blankets of mosses and lichens, their seasonal colours and changing moods. She is also interested in how mood and character is expressed by gesture in the human body.

Brian Adams

Windows, Mirrors and Shadows

21 October 2017 to 02 December 2017

Thoughts on the photographic image in the age of the selfie. Self portraiture has been established in photography long before the present obsession for “selfies” began. Inspired by the book “Self Portrait” by American photographer Lee Friedlander, Brian Adams’ own photographs explore the nature of the photographic image through the use of the self-portrait.
