Trans Iberia

John Selway’s fifty years of painting the Peninsula

Part of a golden generation at the Royal College of Art that included the fledgling Pop Art luminaries Derek Boshier, David Hockney, Alan Jones, R. B. Kitaj and Barry Bates – John Selway immediately set about pursuing his own artistic agenda. Always working from memory, he has often ventured far and wide in search of suitable subject matter. An influential tutor at both Newport and Carmarthen Art Colleges, whether flirting with abstraction, drawing inspiration from literature or responding to a landscape, his primary concern still remains as always, the human condition.

An exhibition of makers influenced by domestic heritage cur ated by Louise Jones-Williams

Many makers grow up surrounded by materials and sewing paraphernalia, taught by their mothers and grandmothers to sew, knit, embroider, quilt and crochet.

Artists who have created custom work for the exhibition include: Kirsty Anderson, Julie Arkell, Jessie Chorley, Caren Garfen, Kate Jenkins, Lynn Setterington & Ruth Singer.

This exhibition opened at Llanrarnam Grange Arts Centre in November 2013.
