Go Home, Polish By Michal Iwanowski

Go Home, Polish, a new exhibition by artist Michal Iwanowski brings together two journeys: a physical one, made by the artist on foot from Wales to Poland; and a spiritual one, made in search of home.

Through photography and writing, Iwanowski shares the stories he heard along the way and collaborates with filmmaker Ian Smith, and musicians Gwenno, Rhys Edwards and WH Dyfodol.

Exhibition Opening: 28/09/18 6:30pm
Official opening of the exhibition with the artist.
Light refreshments will be served.

Unit of Measure
By Llŷr Erddyn Davies

21.09.18 – 28.10.18

Unit of Measure By Llŷr Erddyn Davies

Llŷr Erddyn Davies exhibition ‘Unit of Measure’ is the collection of small characters that reflect everyday situations. Each figure begins life by modelling with wax and once transformed to bronze it intensifies the figures.

In his own words “Bronze is a monumental material, and the process enables the maker to turn anything eternal. We can’t truly own bronze we only borrow it for a time. These figures stand as anthropological studies of the everyday.”

These figures are repeated and placed in juxtaposing positions in familiar landscapes or landmarks across canvas. The context of the landscape chosen for each painting are based on the loss of Welsh names and the history of a place. The cause of this was often down to incorrect translation from Welsh to English or the adoption of English nicknames.

Exhibition Opening: 23/09/18 3:00pm
Informal Exhibition Opening: A chance to see the artwork and talk to the artist.

Cywrain - Form and Shape

‘Cywrain’ is a project for applied arts and contemporary craft and design, celebrating makers and artists from the Celtic regions at Galeri since 2013. We are very please to announce that as ‘Cywrain’ expands from the glass cabinets into a purpose-built exhibition space in our new extension we will be showcasing textiles, glass, wood, metal, ceramic, jewellery and print. With 4 exhibitions a year curated under a theme, our first exhibition which will run September to December is called Form and Shape. The exhibition will feature 16 makers whose work is influenced by geometric shapes, patterns and unconventional forms. From traditional crafts to contemporary ‘Cywrain’ will appeal to a broad audience.
