Hello, We hope you are all well and having a good year so far. Firstly, we'd like to congratulate the winners of our Young Artists Competition and to thank all that entered. Congratulations to Lily Williams for coming 1st and Amelie Brown for coming in 2nd. Also, a big well done to our runner ups Bella Davies, Mia Bell, Lucie Ann Gee, Anna Goodsell, Kayden Lawry and Lily Ann Hill.
All the young artists did fantastically and it was difficult for the judges to pick just 8 designs - all of which are now available to purchase as greetings cards from the gallery in aid of a local dogs charity. This week is the last chance to see the children's exhibition in our Cwtch gallery so please pop in quick to support these talented young artists.
Opening next month on Saturday 5th February is our forth Open competition exhibition 'Open 22'. We had over 70 entries from all over Wales and beyond and it was a huge task for the judges as the work was of a particularly high standard this year.
The winner of this year's competition was Lesley Dearn who will be having a solo show next year during the next open exhibition. Sandra Wintle came in second and Gary Francis third.
