Upcoming Art & Craft Events Cardigan Bay:

Jennifer Taylor - Exhibition

Jennifer Taylor exhibition and performance Saturday 16th June 2018 - Sunday 15th July Location: Oriel Mwldan

Jennifer Taylor works with film and live performance to create absurd scenarios. She uses abandoned structures in remote landscapes as found stage sets. Ancient Neolithic burial chambers and obscure towers in Wales provide surreal, displaced settings that bring a sense of post-apocalyptic degeneration. Jennifer Taylor was recently featured in The Guardian for a performance piece in Rome. You will have a chance to see one of her performances at an exhibition closing event on the 14 July at 7.30pm. If you are interested in taking part, please get in touch with Helena Turgel - email below.

Cragen Sea Monster Tour

Cragen Is Said To Dwell Off The Coast Of Wales and experts have predicted that she will appear along the coastline with an important clean seas message during Wales’ Year of the Sea. Visitors and communities will gasp at her ingenuity and be amazed by her size (approximately 20 meters long) as she returns unwanted plastic waste from the sea to the land. Cragen’s first performance is at Aberporth 20/07/18 2pm and Small World Theatre are delighted to be working with #plasticfree Aberporth for the launch of the tour. We’re also delighted that Cragen will appear on the Teifi at Cardigan’s Giant Lantern Parade on Friday 7th December. Follow Cragen’s travels and discover the tour dates online at the link below. Share your sighting on social media using the hashtags #cleanseascragen #findyourepic #cleanseas Together we can keep our beautiful Cardigan Bay beaches clean. You can help protect Wales’ epic coastline from plastic pollution, by joining the many events and activities surrounding the tour. The Cragen can also be spotted visiting the Sea2Shore Food Festival in Aberystwyth on 12th August and New Quay Harbour Beach as part of the Cardigan Bay Regatta on 19th August along with many other sightings.

Sera Wynn Walker Exhibition

Sera Wynn Walker Exhibition Saturday 21st July 2018 - Sunday 2nd September Location: Oriel Mwldan

A negative, be it a relief, a photograph or a mold has an identity, through her work with camera-less photography and sculptural craft processes Sera Wyn Walker explores the shape, size, texture and character of that identity. Interested in direct visual representations of a light driven process Sera Wyn Walker’s practice uses early camera-less photography techniques as a means of regaining something lost through technological advancements in photography. ‘Through camera-less photography techniques, I bring back that direct connection with the environment. There is a trace of the object in the image, one that is both of and from the landscape’. Please feel free to come along for the opening of this exhibition on 21 July at 6:30pm - completely free and all are welcome!
