The theme of this year’s open exhibition is ‘On The Edge’

Through our DAC Annual Exhibition we showcase and tour the work of Wales-based disabled and deaf artists or those living with long term physical and/or mental health conditions.

It is an open exhibition including work from up-and-coming artists and those who have been working as professional artists for many years. Our aim is to raise profiles; increasing the likelihood of sales, enabling the progression of careers in the creative sector; building relationships between peers and exhibiting venues.

We show a variety of forms and media; DAC supports artists working across all art forms, therefore giving as many artists as possible the opportunity to include their work

The exhibition will take place at the following venues  – dates and details to be confirmed

  • Celf O Gwmpas, Llandrindod Wells
  • Cyfarthfa Castle Museum & Gallery, Merthyr Tydfil
  • Royal Cambrian Academy, Conwy
  • Theatr Clwyd, Mold

Exhibition open January 24th – February 12th  2018 

 Private view event by invitation only – 2nd February 2018 @ 3-5pm 

 A group of creative practitioners and activists – led by Wrexham-based artist Nathan Lee Davies – have been working together on a campaign to encourage the Welsh Government to reconsider their current plans for changes to the Welsh Independent Living Grant (WILG). The artist is keen to raise awareness of the additional support that the grant offers, enabling individuals with the greatest needs to live fulfilling lives. The project is backed by Disability Arts Cymru (DAC) and supported as part of the DAC Extra mentoring programme; which enables Wales-based disabled artists to work with some of Wales’ most exciting arts venues and to receive professional guidance from sector leading professionals.

 

The #SaveWILG exhibition is a collection of visual art and poetry produced by a number of artists and writers from across the UK; focusing on ‘independent living’ as a central theme of investigation. The exhibition will open on January 24th at 9am in the Education Gallery at Theatr Clwyd and will continue until February 12th. Please come along to show your support for this campaign and to enjoy the powerful and emotive art created by people with passion and determination that are united in the belief that disabled lives matter.

Into the Woods

Gallery 3

Naomi Greaves

Craft Showcase

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.

Claire Gent

Jewellery Showcase

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.

Gwent WildlifeTrust

Photography Competion Winners

Oriel Cafe Gallery

The Gwent Wildlife Trust photography competition encourages everyone to capture some of their favourite wildlife moments on film. Each year brings new creativity and techniques, which when applied produces some beautifully atmospheric results. The entries demonstrate a great deal of skill and, in many cases, huge amounts of patience showing how committed people are to observing and recording the wonderful wildlife in Gwent.
