Abandonment and Migration

Abandonment and Migration

Sculptural installation by Alison Lochhead

Gallery 3

08 April 2017 until 27 May 2017

What do you think when you come across an abandoned shoe?  Each shoe holds the story of the person who wore it. Conflicts force people to leave their homes and walk vast distances, enduring unimaginable hardships. Worldwide 65 million people are fleeing their home as it is not safe enough to stay.

The work made by Alison Lochhead reflects upon the memory of actions and experiences of people over time. The earth retains the marks made by humans and the memory of their presence and the injustices inflicted. Each person’s memory and experience is different and only parts remain, there is no ‘wholeness’, only fragments, but when different memories are pieced together they make a collective reflection and memory. 

 

Louise Hall

Louise Hall

Craft Showcase

08 April 2017 until 27 May 2017

Louise Hall works in porcelain to create fragile and delicate hand built vessels. The translucent nature of porcelain creates an ethereal and calming ambience when lit from within. Distinct textures add detail to enhance the illusion of fabric or paper etc. Louise subverts traditional production methods to create distorted, manipulated and beaten forms with imperfect lines, undulating curves and interrupted contours. Joins are not concealed or hidden with colour; they are made to catch the eye and question how they came into existence.Louise is based in Cardiff.

Blossoming Talents

Blossoming Talents

Botanical paintings fom the LGAC weekly art classes

Oriel Cafe Gallery

08 April 2017 until 27 May 2017

Botanical art has its roots in old herbal remedies produced by monks who needed to safely share their recipes with other monks.  This involved depicting plants used with a high degree of accuracy so that other monks could identify the plants used without fear of poisoning their patients


Plant hunters of the 1700’s and 1800’s had to portray their specimens with scientific accuracy and Botanical art evolved into a “pleasing pastime” for gentle ladies.


All the work in this exhibition has been painted by students at Debbie Devauden's weekly arts classes at LGAC and other venues in the local area.

Rare Visions

Rare Visions

The Welsh Group

Main Gallery

10 June 2017 until 29 July 2017

One of the definitions of the word ‘rare’ is ‘having the component parts not closely packed together’. Such a definition aptly describes this present exhibition which shows the disparate and wide ranging work, processes and practices of this long-established artist’s group.
