The Language Landscape
16 April to 18 June 2016
Interactive paintings and sculptures filled with or covered by writing. Steven’s work fuses contemporary poetics, fine art and design to create objects whose physical characteristics are indivisible from the poem. Each piece is made to be touched as well as seen and read.

On a shingle bank on the coast of Wales, surrounded by water on three sides, the village of Borth supports a defiantly individualistic, vibrant community. The photography of Bruce Cardwell, beautifully augmented by the insightful wordcraft of poet Elin ap Hywel and the evocative palette of painter Rhodri Evans, has created an intriguing portrait showcasing some of the many facets of this idiosyncratic village in Wales.

‘Anthropocene’ is a sculptural response, by artist Glenn Morris, to the very real and enormous impact man has on the environment and the future of mankind itself. Three massive figures made of reclaimed materials will occupy the Sculpture Space, two of which have been made for this exhibition.

2015 British Glass Biennale Award Winner, Ruth Shelley specialises in contemporary glass design. Her works’ signature is the use of vivid, dramatic colour in fused and kiln-formed glass which includes panels, tiles, mirrors, bowls, coasters and jewellery. Much of her work is inspired by the dramatic shapes and forms of the mid Wales landscape where she grew up.
“After 16 years of working with glass I am still captivated by how light transforms colour when it hits the glass ‘surface’.”
Ruth is a member of the Makers Guild in Wales and a member of the Contemporary Glass Society. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally and works from her studio in Cardiff. She is available to undertake commissions for bespoke pieces.
