To Build A Home

Saturday 16th August 2014 - Saturday 4th October Location: Mwldan

A Study of the people of Lammas Tir Y Gafel Eco Village and the surrounding community is the work of photographer Amanda Jackson.
Known for her portraiture and her photographic studies of sustainability, in this series Amanda continues to examine people who choose to w alk a different path. Themes running through the series are the freedom of childhood, how people relate to and rely on the land, and what aspect technology plays in their lives. Sometimes contradictory, often humorous, these photographs taken using medium format film evoke a timelessness while capturing a growing modern movement

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


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!
