Mynydd i'r Môr - Mountain to Sea

June 22nd - July 27th

Opening Saturday June 22nd, 2pm


Later this month we have a wonderful joint exhibition featuring work by Colin Davies, David Williams and Sandra Wintle.


This exhibition is a celebration of the Welsh Landscape. It brings together a collection of paintings inspired by the dramatic scenery of both land and sea.

‘Mynnydd I’r Môr’ (‘Mountain to Sea’) is the result of a collaboration by three artists with a mutual appreciation of the other’s work, but each possessing their own unique way of interpreting a personal connection with their surroundings. Whilst media, styles and techniques vary, each uses an expressive, fluid style to create a vibrant depiction of the rugged beauty of the Welsh coastline and mountains. The work on show is inspired by their own experience of a place and the images it generates in the imagination. It is hoped that this exhibition will evoke memories and emotions, both past and present, that are important to all of us.


Part of the Celebration of Welsh Contemporary Painting.



Follow the Light - Maureen Carlson

June 22nd - July 27th


A retrospective exhibition featuring a selection of still life paintings by Maureen Carlson.

Her influencers have varied over the years from Freud to Colin Davidson and Jonathan Yeo.

She uses acrylic and oil paints, charcoal, graphite and pastels mostly in her work which would be described as representational. She works mostly from photographs that she has taken of people and plants, and recently fruit and vegetables for still life paintings.


Maureen will also have some floral work featured in our upcoming floral show, more information on that soon!
