As it waits, until it lasts
The recipient of this year’s Sir Leslie Joseph Young Artist Award 2017 is Bob Gelsthorpe. Gelsthorpe is based in Cardiff and works through a range of media including performance, photography and sculpture. This exhibition takes its inspiration from his late grandfather’s toolbox and explores notions of labour and memory.
…the rest is smoke
Helen Sear is one of Wales’ most acclaimed artists, her work moves seamlessly between expanded notions of photography, sculpture and video. This exhibition is the first UK presentation of the work commissioned for Cymru yn Fenis/Wales in Venice 2015.

Embellished stories from Rhiannon Williams
2nd December – 20th January 2018
At 1pm on the 2nd Dec there will be an ‘in conversation’ with artist Rhiannon Williams
Rhiannon Williams embellishes stories. Using embroidery techniques, she stitches together stories of people.
Rhiannon will also be running a series of workshops to run alongside the exhibition.
Into the Woods
A small curated exhibition of makers who delve deep into the woods to celebrate the beasts and insects who inhabit it. Work will include ceramics, textiles, print, mixed media sculpture and curiosities.
Naomi Greaves has always been a collector of unusual things, most of which can be found in her studio. While some items hold sentimental attachments, others she purchased can be quite peculiar and macabre. A large part of her collection is a library of old books full of engravings and woodcuts.
Fashion meets nature. This is how Claire describes her jewellery. She combines anodised aluminium with sterling silver to create several contemporary ranges that feature flora and fauna, and reflect her love for pattern and illustration.

Artist in Residence
Centre Celf are delighted to welcome their second artist in residence, Dawn McIntyre.
McIntyre’s residency entitled Sanguis et Capillum will focus on creating a self-portrait using abstracted images of organic materials, studied under a microscope.
Throughout November, McIntyre plans to develop a series of portraits looking at different elements of self, to enable viewers to see aspects of the artist and to identify with themselves.
McIntyre’s paintings and sketches capture images which translate the experience of places to which she has travelled, using materials she finds fascinating at a particular moment in time.
The four residencies in partnership with Disability Arts Cymru are funded by the Arts Council of Wales and provide a unique experience for Disabled Artists living in Wales to develop their artistic practice.
