Exhibition runs from 8th June – 1st July

 

Tactile Tour of Exhibition

Saturday 17th June

11am – 1pm

Paul is a ceramicist based in Cardiff and as part of this exhibition he will be facilitating a handling tour of his work at the gallery as a way to encourage audiences to engage with ceramics through tactile means.

The show focuses on landscape and nature and includes painter Chris Prout’s work as well as Paul’s ceramics. Both use texture to reveal aspects of and a feel for the environment. Touch is such a vital way of engaging with the world, literally connecting us to our surroundings. It is a key way for people to connect with ceramic objects and this is why I want to invite an audience to the tactile handling tour of my work within the show. There will also be some small fragments of work if people are concerned about holding larger pieces.

Unfortunately access is not good as the Albany Gallery is on the first floor and there is no lift.

If you are interested in attending can you please email Paul so he has an idea of numbers, thanks.

Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre

Rare Visions

The Welsh Group

10th June – 29th July 2017

Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre

St David’s Road · Cwmbran, Torfaen NP44 1PD

Please join us for the opening of our new series of exhibitions on Saturday 10th June. The Rare Visions exhibition will be opened at 12.30 pm by Phil George, Chairman of the Arts Council of Wales. This will be followed by a walk and talk by members of the Welsh Group.

One of the definitions of the word ‘rare’ is ‘having the component parts not closely packed together’ Such a definition aptly describes this present exhibition which shows the disparate and wide ranging work, processes and practices of this long-established artist’s group.

Besides the variety of works, an extra interest here is that a number of the group’s members have shown at Llantarnam Grange since its opening in 1966 and it is as intriguing to see how the work of these artists has evolved, as it is to see how new members have brought different media, perceptions and working practice into the mix of ‘component parts’.

Jacqueline Alkema, Jenny Allan, Lynne Bebb, Husted, Dilys Jackson, Jacqueline Jones, Kay Keogh, Angela Kingston, Robert Macdonald, Michael Organ, Shirley Ann Owen, Gus Payne, Sue Roberts, Alan Salisbury, Phillipine Sowerby, Antonia Spowers, Thomasin Toohie, Jean Walcot, Pip Woolf.

Dewis Cymru

Stay well through the Dewis website

Dewis Cmru logoLooking for advice on staying well ? Then look no further than the Dewis Cymru website.

The website www.dewis.wales is the place for information about all issues relating to well-being in Wales, as well as the first point of information about local organisations and services that can help.

The website includes information on key topics: Being Well; Being Social; Being at Home; Being Safe; Managing Your Money; Children and Families and Looking After Someone.

The Being Well section looks at a range of issues, including indoor and outdoor activities, healthy relationships (including sexual health) and dealing with medication. It also details five ways of being well (connecting with people, being active, keep learning, taking notice of your surroundings and volunteering).

Bethan Jones Edwards, Head of Regional Collaboration of the North Wales Social Care and Well-being Services Improvement Collaborative, said: “Being well isn’t just about being physically healthy and free from illness, it’s also how you feel about yourself and your life as a whole.

“People often have a greater sense of well-being when they have strong social networks, suitable housing, they are in employment and/or education (if they wish to be) and they are healthy, both physically and emotionally.

“The Dewis Cymru website is a great one stop shop for all the information you need about well-being. There is a directory of services and activities available in your community. It’s all about pointing people in the right direction to the wealth of support already available”.

People can visit the website to register and to access details of support available in their county.

Established in 2011, the Art Car Bootique is an eclectic and eccentric mix of artist projects and performances, live music, delicious street food and vintage fashion, celebrating the very best of South Wales’ creative community. From 11am until 6pm our car park is transformed into a psychedelic village fete, jam-packed with over 70 pitches for you to explore and enjoy and live music and performances on stage.
