Winter Newsletter from the Waterfront

This year in the Big Christmas Arts & Crafts Show at the Gallery which opens on 14 November we will be showcasing the work of new artists and craft workers and new work from artists who have shown with us during the year as well as our resident exhibitors. It will be a changing show; once something has sold it will be replaced by other work.

New to the gallery is John Cahill, the local Sunday Times Watercolour Exhibition painter, with his large landscapes and etchings of North Pembrokeshire alongside Bob Royston with his oil paintings and Mark Raggett both with new abstract and semi-abstract work. On the smaller scale are Cynthia Morgans Hurley's watercolour sketches and Janet Llewellyn with her black and white paintings. Also acrylic seascapes from Chris Prosser, and oil and pastel work from Sandra Phillips and watercolour and mixed media from John Phillips. Impressionist work from award winner Anne Farrall Doyle (Anne has just won Artist of the Year in an online competition sponsored by Windsor & Newton and Rosentiel's Fine Art Publishers)

Displaying crafts are Caro Flynn with her highly glazed colourful ceramics, many with animal themes, and textile artist new to the gallery Hayley Murphy with her unusual small cottages. Also showing are Joy Jenkins with her wearable felt art wraps and Lion House Bags with antique carpet bags with a contemporary twist. There's new unusual glass panoramas from Jackie Henshall and recycled silver jewellery from Kerry Hughes. Sally Amoore has made new bronze sculptures and we're promised some new work from Luke Kite by the middle of the month. Sheila Hickey is now making coloured porcelain table lamps and Valerie Price West is showing foot high ceramic horses with narrative notes, studies of some of her beloved ponies; and artisan blacksmith Alan Perry has produced fireside accessories, ideal to help you through the winter months.

David Randell, the gallery Director commented "I think we've put together a tremendous exhibition this year, mainly work from Pembrokeshire and the western fringes of Wales and thanks must go to Conygar InvestmentCompany PLC for the financial support they have given us to do this. We are extremely grateful."

David continued, "Although the show previews to you on 14th November it will be officially opened by the Rt Honourable Stephen Crabb, MP, Secretary of State for Wales on Saturday 29 November at 3pm and everyone is welcome. There's also a late night Shopping Evening on Thursday 11 December from 6pm until 8.00pm. Easy credit payment terms are available on most items" he concluded.

The exhibition continues until 31 December and the gallery is open from 10.30am till 4.00pm Monday to Saturday. Over Christmas and New Year we will be closed from 12 noon on Christmas Eve, reopening for 28/29/30/31 December and then closing for our annual refurb until 19 January when we will open with a special show of artwork from Tasker Millward School curated by Chris Prosser, Head of Art.


Seasons greetings, good health and happiness to you all from the team at the Waterfront.
