Roger Cecil

Roger Cecil

Main Gallery

02 June 2018 until 21 July 2018

Roger Cecil (1942-2015) has been described as one of the great abstract artists of his generation, yet in his lifetime he was little known outside a circle of fellow painters. He turned his back on a Royal College of Art scholarship in the 1960s to return home to Abertillery to paint on his own and without influence. This exhibition will show his extraordinarily beautiful paintings alongside jewellery and 3d work which has never been exhibited.

The Lost Generation

Main Gallery

06 October 2018 until 10 November 2018

Almost half a million men enlisted in the first two months of The Great War, however recruitment soon fell dramatically and conscription was introduced in January 1916. Most single men from the ages of 18 to 41 were liable to be called up for service and by the end of war over five million British men had served. This “war to end all wars” resulted in four years of fighting, millions dead and the dramatic restructuring of Europe. We have commissioned contemporary artists aged 18-41 to create new work in response to this Lost Generation.
