Waterfront Gallery The Big Christmas Arts & Crafts Show

Opening on 20 November the Big Christmas Arts & Crafts Show at the Waterfront Gallery in Milford Docks features the work of more than 25 local artists and craft workers.  Amongst them are the Browning duo's traditional blue and white domestic pottery that is their trademark style, ceramics by Caro Flynn and Gina Hughes together with textile work by Riita Sinkkonen-Davies; and glass artist Jackie Henshall with her unusual curved fused glass and recent graduate Louise Panter-Whitlock with her unique new jewellery designs.There will be new images from photographers Heather Bennett and Mo Hassan with his Pembrokeshire landscape work; and using both new and reclaimed metals artisan blacksmith Alan Perry uses traditional hot forging techniques to create original contemporary designs for domestic use, floor standing candelabra, pokers, bowls and such like alongside work in wood from Paul Kay.  David Randell, the gallery director elaborated, "Janet Llewellyn is showing the first watercolour results of her Summer School experience painting on the streets of Paris and Lynn Parr, back from her Australian experience and the influences of that hot colourful country is showing her dramatic mixed media work." David continued, "Local art teacher and Head of Art Chris Prosser features coastal acrylics including his work on Nolton Haven and Broadhaven and award winning artist John Cahill is presenting some smaller mixed media pieces than usual alongside Anne Farrall Doyle, Cynthia Morgans Hurley and Ray Burnell with his North Pembrokeshire landscapes.  I Think there's something for everyone", he concluded.  New to the gallery last month London artist and retired teacher Ken Maycock now a permanent Pembrokeshire resident is presenting brightly coloured still life work of flowers together with impressionist local landscapes; the flower journey continues with the unusual work of Anny Carson-Clash who combines exquisite pressed flowers with interesting book publications.The gallery is open from Monday to Saturday 10.30am till 4.00pm and closed for lunch 12.30 till 1.30pm.
