Castle Park Arts Centre has four new exhibitions showing from 27 June until 5 August 2018. Come and meet the artists on Friday 29 June 2018, enjoy a drink and visit all the exhibitions between 7 – 9 pm.
The exhibition in gallery 1 is called ‘Creative Moments’ . This stunning exhibition from duo Jenny Holland and Ronnie Drillsma demonstrates their skills in handling oil and acrylic. Both artists have spent many years exhibiting, demonstrating and teaching and come together now for their first joint exhibition. The colourful, vibrant display of local scenes and beyond, showcases the complimentary styles of these two talented artists. See below
In gallery 2 we have the Wednesday Art Group. This is the first exhibition at Castle Park for the Wednesday Art Group (WAG). Meeting each week for over twenty five years, they come together to pursue their love of painting, especially in watercolour. “Memories” is a record of things that they have experienced that occupy a special place in their hearts.
Tenplus Textiles will be in Gallery 3. Ten Plus Textiles was formed in 1991 by ten textile artists based in the North West who wanted to work together and promote an appreciation of embroidery in all its forms. Since then the group has grown in number and there are currently sixteen members. Their textiles include hand and machine embroidery, patchwork, quilting, beadwork, weaving, collage and mixed media.
Chris Newsham will be in the Link Gallery with an exhibition called ‘Worms Head’ – recollections of a landscape – taking the geomorphology of the Gower peninsula as a starting point to explore the notion of recollection and its fractured hold on memory.
