Current Exhibition - Mike Jones Solo Exhibtion 2016

07/05/2016 to 28/05/2016

Mike Jones paints from his studio in the village of Pontardawe in the Swansea Valley. He exhibits widely across Wales and in the Cotswolds and has also exhibited at the Royal Academy.

Born in 1941, Mike is a prolific artist who takes inspiration from the Welsh culture in which he grew up and is heavily influenced by the lives of the people and places of the valley. His subject matter is drawn from his observations both past and present.

Brought up in the mining community of Godre`r-graig his images reflect the hard living conditions that his family and neighbours often had to endure. Paintings and drawings of women scrubbing steps, baking, hanging out washing, or simply sitting sharing a quiet moment with the onlooker, contrast with the granite figures of men who worked in the thriving steel and coal industries, yet both convey the individuality and richness of their lives.

'In drawing and painting, I endeavour to give emotions, ideas and memories a permanent form. I find inspiration in simple subject matter and through my art try to convey emotion and attitude which I hope will connect with the viewer'.

Current Exhibition - 'Curated' - Andrew Douglas-Fobes 2016

11/06/2016 to 02/07/2016

MANY MORE IMAGES TO FOLLOW. PLEASE CHECK BACK CLOSER TO THE EXHHIBITION START.

An exhibition of new paintings, including farms and cottages of the northern part of Carmarthenshire, still life from the meticulously observed to the expressive, and Andrew's figure studies, again of rural Carmarthenshire life. Andrew's mantra as a painter is always 'painterly-ness' which binds together the three principal subjects of this new work.

Although his paintings are quite quiet in nature, with subtle complex pared down colour, the paintings 'sing' with colour harmonies and hold great individual presence - a quality very few painters achieve.

Reproduction does not do full justice to the textures and depth of this accomplished work. Viewing at our Llandeilo gallery is highly recommended.

Also included in the show will be a fresh selection of rigorously sourced country Antiques, curated by Andrew himself, to compliment his painting.
