Winter Open Exhibition

26 November to 22 December

 

WOW! The Winter Open has attracted over 150 pieces of art, a few of which are shown below. From sculptures, ceramics, abstracts, local scenes and work done in every style and every medium. This is going to be like the Royal Academy, chock-a-block with delight.

Opening on Saturday 26 November at 2pm, with mulled wine and refreshments to add to the atmosphere, this is a must to get the festive season off with a swing.

We put out a call nationwide for contributions and have been overwhelmed by the response, receiving work from all over Wales, Bristol, London and even one quirky entry from Australia involving paper sculpture!

There are works by well-established artists such as Roy Ayres, Diana Heeks, Philippa Sibert, Elizabeth Haines, David Hands, Osi Rhys Osmond and more, plus some from students from Carmarthen Art College and from new artists, emerging in response to the theme of ‘OPEN to everyone’. Curator Lynne Crompton says it is important to give people the chance to show their work irrespective of training or status, and, as the gallery usually shows more contemporary or challenging art, this is an opportunity to appeal to more popular culture, which includes decorative and traditional representational work.

There is definitely something to suit and stimulate everyone's taste and is a good opportunity to buy Christmas presents or treat yourself. There are gift vouchers available and all work may be purchased on an interest-free scheme. It will be open from Wednesday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm, until 22 December, or other times on request.
