B E Cole

Sea Gold 2019

06 July to 31 August 2019
Sculpture Space

A fossil beach, sea creatures past and present; all around us is a wealth of flora and fauna which, as any beach-comber, sea-bather and walker of the coastal paths knows, can be devastated by ignorance and complacency. The seas feed us; the seas gave us life. The sculptures in this exhibition are built from recycled materials either as they were made or after they have been cast.



Tabernacle Art Competition

Theme: History

06 July to 05 September 2019
Pulpit Room, Owen Owen Gallery & Bridge

Ag Cain

People, Posters, Places

03 August to 14 September 2019
Ruralist Room

Ag Cain’s background as a lettering artist, coupled with an admiration for the marvellous work of the pre-war poster and enamel-sign artists, inspired him to start creating his own hand-lettered modern retro posters and paintings. Many feature an affectionate and optimistic take on holidaymaking, the seaside, railway advertising, and gloriously sunny Wales….and at least one features gin!



Clive Hicks-Jenkins

Hansel & Gretel

03 August to 14 September 2019
Foyer Gallery

Hansel & Gretel: a nightmare in eight scenes, by Simon Armitage, published in May by Design for Today, is the second book the poet has produced with Clive Hicks-Jenkins as illustrator, the first having been last year’s Sir Gawain and the Green Knight from Faber & Faber. Armitage’s Hansel & Gretel originated as the libretto of a work for chamber orchestra and puppets, and last year was performed on a national tour by the Berkeley Ensemble, in a production designed and directed by the artist.



Roger Cecil

1942-2015

14 September to 23 November 2019
Owen Owen Gallery & Pulpit Room

The Roger Cecil exhibition at MOMA Machynlleth in 2017 was one of the most popular and critically acclaimed the gallery has ever shown. This exhibition is an opportunity to see more of his extraordinary legacy as a ‘secret artist’ now recognised as one of the most important painters Wales has produced. It includes major works on canvas alongside his highly accessible small works on paper.



Antonia Spowers

Paper Unbound

14 September to 23 November 2019
Bridge

The work is currently exploring paper as a medium in a number of ways. There is an underlying theme of connection to landscape in the broadest sense plus experiments with surface, texture and form and the variety of paper itself as a medium. Work can be free standing, wall mounted or suspended. Antonia’s interest in paper stems from a time when she was working with water as paper is both formed in and by water.
