The concept of the exhibition came from discussion on how artists, and particularly rural artists, often inhabit a space outside of public gaze. Most work in isolation at home or in their studios, or keep themselves tucked away in the hills. Even if you actively search it can be difficult to find which artists live and work in this area. This presents something of an issue for a practice that actually requires public interaction.

Primarily this exhibition aims to make visible the talent that exists in and around Llanidloes. By bringing together visual artists and presenting their work in one space it shows more clearly the range and volume of creative work that is happening in the area.

The artists have been asked to submit work on the theme Hidden, a word which can be interpreted many different ways, with endless associations. From work exploring visual elements or places which are literally obscured or hidden, to the hidden depths of the subconscious, or experiences of hidden physical conditions, the work presented explores a wide range of subjects, each as unique as the individual artists that made them.

Llanidloes Artists was formed in August 2018 to support local artists and promote Llanidloes as a vibrant creative town. The group includes artists from a wide range of disciplines, backgrounds and experience and as such itacts as a melting pot of talent encouraging dynamic discussion of work and a place to explore ideas.
