Leoma Drew

Jewellery Showcase

Jewellery Showcase

26 March 2016 until 14 May 2016

Leoma uses saw piercing, shape forming and stone setting creating beautiful wing inspired jewellery. Leoma incorporates motifs with solid shapes and stone setting for an abstract and contemporary aspect. The black and white effect is contrasted with bright and unusually cut stones that complement each other perfectly.

Leoma’s wearable jewellery and objects are influenced by each other and these pieces represent sentimentality which is enhanced by the intimacy created between object and body.

Oriel Cafe Gallery

26 March 2016 until 14 May 2016

Jantien loves to paint life as she see it around her, the beautiful Welsh countryside, the hill farms and their inhabitants, as a farmers daughter, these are the things that are dear to her.

 

She paints mostly in acrylics but also loves to use collage and texture to add depth and layers to a painting. She cuts out relevant newspaper articles, sales reports from the cattle markets, images or text that she can weave into her paintings so that the viewer keeps finding new information, a name, a price, maybe a photograph that you might not notice at first. Not only does it add beautiful layers to a painting but it also adds an interesting marker in terms of dates and places that are included.

MakersXchange: Dinny Pocock

MakersXchange: Dinny Pocock

Craft Showcase

16 January 2016 until 12 March 2016

MakersXchange is an initiative where Venues and Makers Guilds from across Wales and the South West exchange the work of makers they regularly show or represent. This year LGAC has linked with the New Brewery Arts in Cirencester and we will be presenting the work of Dinny Pocock. 

Dinny studied ceramics at Camberwell School of Art in London but her technique of sculpting fine layers of porcelain over wire frames has recently - and surprisingly - transferred into needle-felting.  “To create a neat bird from a wilful bundle of wool seems fascinating and absurd in equal measure. Of utmost importance to me is that the essence of the subject is realised; I like to capture the moment of stillness between movements, the moment when something extraordinary might happen."
