Central to Cherry Pickles' work is self-portraiture. These paintings often involve role play and so call to attention such popular perceptions as the heroic stature of the male artist (self-portraits as Dylan Thomas and William S Boroughs). Pickles often works from the car, exploring the way mirrors and windscreens enliven what we see, whether landscapes through smeared windscreens, self-portraits through rear-view mirrors or seated passengers.

The Tempest will be the Abbey Shakespeare Players' 29th summer production in St Dogmaels Abbey and will be directed by Henry Morris. The Tempest is one of Shakespeare's late works, and apparently the last play of which he was sole author. A masterpiece of dramatic invention, its repeated allusions to art, spectacle and illusion have led some to associate Prospero with Shakespeare himself. Seated outdoors near the sea, be transported to an island that shows us what it means to be human. And as the day ends and swallows turn into stars, St Dogmaels Abbey creates its very own kind of magic. With live music and a lively cast, The Tempest will be The Abbey Shakespeare Players' 29th production in the majestic ruins of St Dogmaels Abbey. Tickets will be available in advance from Theatr Mwldan, Cardigan Tickets are also available at the gate on the evening. This is an outdoor production so please dress warmly. Seating is provided. Proceeds to Hanes Llandoch Registered Charity No. 1089775
