St David’s Road · Cwmbran, Torfaen NP44 1PD
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’.
