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

To the Quick

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.

Deirdre McKenna

Oileáin / Ynysoedd
From Dingle to Machynlleth

23 June to 4 August 2018
Ruralist Room

Deirdre McKenna spent a month on a residency exchange here in September 2017. Her work is influenced by the traditions of her home in the South West of Ireland. As a native Irish speaker she was interested in exploring the connections between Wales and Ireland through the language and other cultural links. This exhibition is a result of that exploration.

Lisa Eurgain Taylor

Beyond the World

23 June to 4 August 2018

This exhibition is a series of paintings existing somewhere between reality and fantasy. They are imaginary, otherworldly and mystic places, but have been inspired by the striking mountains of Snowdonia. The paintings convey positivity and hope as light penetrates intensely through the shadows.
