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
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
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
