Y Wal
By Rhys Aneurin

9.11.18 – 6.01.19

Y Wal

The conflicting urban and cultural surroundings of Cardiff are far from where Rhys grew up in Ynys Môn. The place which he now called home contrasts drastically with where he used to call home. Rhys Aneurin’s work challenges these realities and ideals by stripping down every day aesthetics to the core within geometry, texture and colour. In this spirit Rhys asks – “is it a love for what one sees that creates a sense of belonging, or is it a sense of belonging that makes one feel love for what one sees?”

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.

Interested in exhibiting your work here in Galeri?
