Coracles and the Teifi Exhibition

Friday 22nd August 2014 - Sunday 30th November Location: Hammet House Hotel

A coracle is a hand-made work of art. Each one, like the pieces in this exhibition, is an expression of its maker. I'm passionate about creating exciting and emotive images that capture both the coraclers and the character of the Teifi waters, by combining bold composition with movement, colour, and texture. deborah withey

Fimbulwinter

Saturday 11th October 2014 - Saturday 29th November Location: Mwldan

In his recent work, Fitzjohn explores concerns regarding our changing climate. Themes focused in our consciousness buy the recent storms that devastated our coastline reminding us of the fluid and changeable nature of our landscape. The installation is titled Fimbulwinter, which in Norse mythology is a period of three successive winters, an environmental disaster that is the immediate prelude to the end of the world. While the world may not be ending, it is changing and this work responds to this by imagining of the end of things as they are, the mutability and adaptability of nature and the hope embedded in possible futures. EXHIBITION OPENING An opening reception will be held at 3pm on Saturday 11th October to launch this exhibition - there is a warm welcome to all. Come and join us for tea, cake and fizz!
