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.
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.
