2nd Annual Exhibition Opens on 6th September
Opening event 4-6pm
PENNY D JONES: TEIMLO LLAIS
Teimlo Llais is an interactive installation comprising a fabric quilt, a ceramic quilt and the voices of women speaking in Welsh. The exhibition is a culmination of the research and development project Llais Menywod in 2016 which highlighted the need for the women’s voice to be heard. The focus on touch and sound makes the exhibition suitable for blind and partially sighted people. penny d jones is an artist who feels that the Welsh language and women’s issues are paramount.
There will be a performance from a local Welsh women’s choir to launch the exhibition through a collaboration with penny d jones at the opening on 7 September at 6pm at Oriel Mwldan, Cardigan
Mae Teimlo Llais yn osodwaith rhyngweithiol sy’n cynnwys cwilt defnydd, cwilt ceramig a lleisiau menywod yn siarad yn Gymraeg. Mae’r arddangosfa hon yn anterth y prosiect ymchwil a datblygu ‘Llais Menywod’ yn 2016 a amlygodd yr angen i leisiau menywod cael eu clywed. Mae’r ffocws ar gyffwrdd a sain yn gwneud yr arddangosfa hon yn addas ar gyfer pobl ddall a phobl sy’n rhannol ddall. Mae penny d jones yn artist sy’n teimlo bod yr Iaith Gymraeg a Lleisiau Menywod yn hollbwysig.
Bydd perfformiad gan gôr merched lleol i lansio’r arddangosfa sy’n seiliedig ar gydweithrediad â penny d jones ar 7 Medi am 6:20pm a Oriel Mwldan, Aberteifi

As we have no booklet deadline this year, registrations have been extended and you can now register up to 11th June!
The Open Studios will run across the four weekends of September as usual :
7th – 9th, 14th – 16th, 21st – 23rd and 28th – 30th, with optional late night opening on Fridays (also as usual!)
In addition we have a super range of exhibition and residency opportunities for members at galleries across North Wales, including:
collaborations at Tŷ Pawb and UnDegUn, Wrecsam
a new collaboration with Plas Glyn y Weddw
a new residency at Stiwdio Maelor
a repeat of the popular exhibition at the beautiful Oriel Brondanw

Again there will be:
residencies at Galeri Caernarfon and Ruthin Craft Centre
exhibitions at the café at Oriel Mostyn
and lots more !
The first stage of our website makeover is now unveiled and it includes a simplified online registration process – if you are re-registering you will be asked to check and update last year’s information, new members will need to input their details …… so ensure you have all particulars to hand. Go to www.helfagelf.co.uk to register.
Payment this year will only be possible by credit or debit card.
Having not raised prices significantly for many years, this year we are raising existing price bands slightly, and introducing new price bands:
Silver (for one artist) £70
Gold I (up to 3 artists), £120
Gold II (4 – 9 artists), £185
Gold III (10 + artists) £250
However as part of our shiny new look, group pages will now feature an entry of art image, name and brief contact details for each artist. Make sure you are included if you want to be considered for an exhibition!
Bronze (webpage only) remains the same at £35
Finally, as outlined in the last mailing, at the request of our funders, but also in response to feedback from last year, we are not going to produce the big booklet this year – for one thing it has proved almost impossible to produce a booklet with legible print and maps for the money we have available. Instead we will shortly bring out a leaflet with details of our event and from the money saved by this we can fund better distribution and better promotion via the clusters, plus more emphasis on digital marketing via social media and the website, and online generally.
This will include year round integrated social media coverage including Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, and linking into ‘featured artist of the week’ on the website, plus an improved website including:
mobile friendly website
cluster maps downloadable as pdf
fully interactive maps on website
improved search facility which shows which studios open each day
personalisable downloadable trail map for visitors.
We are very excited by the possibilities this year, and we hope you can join us!
