McClafferty’s residency entitled Exploring the language of landscape, people and place will seek to develop a series of art works and ideas, in response to the language and landscape of Wales.

Throughout December, McClafferty will make various explorations around the different regions of Wales, engaging with language, landscape, people and places and create art works in response to experiences.

As a multi-disciplinary artist and designer, McClafferty is interested in themes and ideas such as identity, exploration, time and place.

Artist in Residency

Celf o Gwmpas are delighted to welcome Lou Lockwood, the first of four artists in residence to arrive at Centre Celf.

Lou is using her time at Celf o Gwmpas to further develop ideas using pin hole cameras during her residency: Imprint – a further experiment in touch memory.  

Lou will be in residence throughout October, so look out for pin hole cameras dotted around Llandrindod Wells…

Lockwood works in sculpture, audio, photography, film and performance.  The direction of her work is in response to her need to adapt to sight loss and to develop a language in art that aims to bring sighted and non-sighted audiences together.

12 Jan – 14 Feb: A retrospective exhibition celebrating the life and works of the late Dean Warburton.

celf logo

Dean used his creative practice, which also included dance, as a means of expressing his perception of the real world and that which existed in his fertile imagination. 

Dean’s practice was multi-facetted, employing numerous techniques and materials, from junk to ceramic, stitch, painting, collage, costume, print, sculpture and installations. This makes for a stimulating and diverse exhibition, filled with vibrancy and colour, much like Dean himself.

Come and join us on Thursday 12th January from 4pm for the exhibition preview to celebrate the life, work and legacy of Dean Warburton/Dean Punk. We’d love to see you.
