We are very fortunate to have an art gallery in the village of Llangadog. The gallery was already aware of our Tywi a River Through Time project and wanted us to exhibit these works in the gallery. The exhibition will be available to view every Thursday and Friday throughout May.
The exhibition at the Grand Theatre in Swansea is the first by a group of artists who have come together with the single aim of exhibiting work. The group was formed about 6 months ago and we have chosen the name ‘Art Dot’. The exhibition space at the Grand is light and airy and well hopefully be an excellent venue for visitors to see out work.
‘Tywi a River Through Time’ as an artistic project has been funded from a much larger and wider ranging 3 year project initiative that is working throughout the Tywi Valley supporting local groups in the promotion of rural skills, local history and access to the valley. As part of a printmaking workshop led by Alan Williams we have put together a collective piece of work focuses on a stretch of river between Llangadog in the east to Dryslwyn in the west. The river was divided into sections and each artist was allowed to interpret their section however they chose. The work is a panel of 8 large woodcut images which are visually linked together by the river. Before taking the panels away to work on, we placed them all together and drew on the image of the river based on a map of the area.
