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.

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.

Ceramics from Anne Gibbs

Main Gallery

07 October 2017 until 18 November 2017

Anne Gibbs takes the time to stop and contemplate what she sees and experiences. She is minded to observe what often goes unnoticed, be it a tree on a hill we might see every season or a road junction we might pass everyday. Anne recognises the beauty in things and also acknowledges the pain, both often unexpected. Thus in her fine ceramic work we see calm delicacy often contrasted against rough, found objects. A metal pin might perforate a smooth surface, a sharp edge might be left on an object we could otherwise use.

Anne models and casts work in bone china, using a bright palette of colours. The sculptural ceramics she presents, sometimes in pairs and sometimes in large groups, are punctuated with objects she has collected. Anne’s work maps her life journey so far and does so without presuming what we, as viewers, might see in it.

Still is a chance for us to share and celebrate a wonderful new body of work by Anne as it tours to venues across Wales. The exhibition is accompanied by a variety of engagement activities.
