Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Aberystwyth 2nd October – 25th November 2021
The exhibition long planned and much delayed by COVID celebrates twenty one years since the founding of the group. Visitors will find a history of the group’s founding, a narrative and record of some of the exhibitions held by the group and most importantly representative works by 17 current members. Works are diverse and include stone carvings, assemblages, wall pieces, works in metal as well as installation works in a variety of media. Topics and themes explored include climate change, the destruction of habitats, and changing habitats, the astonishing imposition of old order rules on newly migrant peoples, various examples of histories re visited, of the sustaining power of landscapes, of humour and the re invention of old practices and traditions.
An illustrated catalogue with a catalogue essay by Robert Harding which explores the history of the group and its achievements over the last 21 years is published to coincide with the opening of the exhibition. A power point presentation will document the works of previous members and some of the many shows and events that the group has been involved with. Notable shows documented will include exhibitions within the grounds of Kidwelly Castle, Margam Sculpture Park, Dyffryn Gardens, the National Botanic Garden of Wales.
We are thrilled to be finally putting on this show and look forward to seeing visitors at the Art Centre during the exhibition. It is hoped to hold some kinds of discussion events and a forum on the exhibition as regulations allow.
