This exhibition celebrates the completion of Clive Hicks-Jenkins’ fourteen-print series based on Simon Armitage’s 2007 translation of the medieval poem, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

Open Eyes

24 March to 23 June 2018
Tannery Gallery

This exhibition explores, through the art collection made over the past fifty years by Lindsay Evans, the role of private purchasers in supporting visual culture. Lindsay Evans says he looked at art with open eyes and ‘succumbed to urge and impulse.’ The exhibition emphasises his interests in sense of place, industrial communities and significant Welsh artists. Among the artists represented are Brenda Chamberlain, Alfred Janes, Ceri Richards, Mollie Winterburn and Ernest Zobole.

Kyffin Williams


24 March to 23 June 2018

An exhibition from our own Tabernacle Collection to mark 100 years since the birth of Kyffin Williams who was a great supporter of this Museum.
Born in Llangefni, Anglesey, he became known for his distinctive use of thick oil paint applied with a palette knife along with his Welsh subject matter.

Morfydd Ransom-Hall

Was It Wet That Year?

5 May to 16 June 2018
Ruralist Room

Observations and Reflections on Cwm Ystwyth
Climate and weather impact upon the landscape season by season – sometimes violent sometimes gentle. Humans endeavour to dominate this environment, an activity that leaves its mark. Morfydd concentrates on the Anthropocene especially the Climate of the British Isles. The main work in this exhibition uses data collected by a ‘weather station’ at Cwmystwyth.

Rhodri Owen

‘I’r Byw’

2 June to 23 June 2018
Sculture Space

Rhodri’s hand-crafted furniture pieces are juxtaposed with pieces transformed by groups across Wales, supported by artists Manon Awst, Rebecca F. Hardy, Christine Mills, Llŷr Alun Jones, Bill Swann, Lisa-marie Tann, Catrin Williams, Pip Woolf and Kirstin Claxton. Marked, coloured, gouged or disjointed – these pieces express how life experiences leave their mark on us all.
