Art Space:

Impossible Materials
by Dewi Williams & Geraint Edwards

08.06.19 – 19.07.19

Safle Celf

The digital network has documented, indexed, mapped, processed, quantified and manipulated physical space, creating a new identical layer of reality. Now we live simultaneously in the virtual and physical dimensions, in a state of permanent wonder and terror.

These works open a door on the contemporary hybrid state of the post-dimensional sublime and cause us to question:
Are we in their space or are they in ours?
Are they physical objects or windows into another world?
What does it mean to become a digital object in a physical world?

The ancient Celtic term “thin places” was used to describe those places where the boundary between the mortal and the sacred is thinnest. Might the phrase also be applied to the physical / virtual “betweenity” we experience on a daily basis?

Y Wal:

Our Land
by Glyn Price

03.06.19 – 19.07.19

Safle Celf

Glyn Price is a Welsh landscape artist who hails from the Snowdonia village of Cwm y Glo. Our Land is a collection of works created with thanks to an Arts Council of Wales research and development grant.

The land is very important to me, and I want to continue exploring the great outdoors. I simply react to the land where I was born and have been brought up in, trying to capture a moment in time through a creative process.

Cywrain: Gwledd

May - August 2019

Cywrain: Gwledd

The theme for this season is Gwledd (meaning Feast).

‘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 delighted that since opening the new extension, Cywrain is able to expand from the glass cabinets into a purpose-built space located in the main reception area – providing further opportunities for artists/makers to exhibit and sell their work.

Mae Cywrain yn brosiect celfyddydau cymhwysol a chrefft a dylunio cyfoes gan Galeri sydd wedi bod yn dathlu ac arddangos gwaith crefftwyr ac artistiaid o’r gwledydd Celtaidd ers 2013.

This season, 12 makers will present and showcase their work influenced by “feast” and the colours, shape and form of food, utensils, tableware and vessels with a small collection highlighting Welsh afternoon tea.

Exhibiting/selling their work until the end of August are:
Laura Cameron, Hannah Coates, Lowri Davies, Twinkle & Gloom, Grasi, David Holmes, Remon Jephcott, Lisa Krigel, Vania Morris, Jenny Murray, Claire Spencer, Rebecca Wilson.
