14th Annual Exhibition

On Friday February 16 2018

We have a very unusual feature this year to add to the range of local talent. In the summer of 2017 we co-curated a Celebration of Welsh Contemporary Painting Exhibition held at Cyfarthfa Castle. There were twelve participating current significant artists, many of whom have international reputations. We are delighted that we will be bringing some of the highlights to Glasbury for our annual exhibition. The featured painters will include: Martyn Jones, Abstract; Charles Burton, Figurative; Alan Salisbury, Surrealist; Gustivus Payne, Figurative; Sally Mathews, Life Size Animals; Joanne Smith, Still Life; Veronica Gibson, Landscapes (Oils); Kate Freeman, Abstract and John Darlison Landscapes (Water Colours). In addition, work produced for this exhibition by Gwernyfed High School will be on display
