GARETH OWEN : ENGLUNIAU
Dec 9, 2017 - Feb 17, 2018
Poetry inspires Gareth Owen’s work. He uses paper collage across a variety of themes, expressed in his own poems, to explore poetry in a visual form. The exhibition title is a play on words on ‘Llun’ (Image) and ‘Englun’ (a 4 line verse in strict metre unique to Wales).

CLIVE HICKS-JENKINS : SIR GAWAIN AND THE GREEN KNIGHT
Mar 17 - Jun 23, 2018
This exhibition celebrates the completion of Clive Hicks-Jenkins’ fourteen-print series based on Simon Armitage’s 2007 translation of the medieval poem, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. As well as the prints there are sketches, maquettes and paintings on the theme drawn from the artist’s archive and private collections.

JO NADEN : THE SANDS OF TIME
Mar 24 - May 26, 2018 FINAL WEEK
Landscape and our relationship to it is the basis of Jo’s practice. Inspired by the rugged stony quality of the interior of the Sculpture Space and its location on the western seaboard of Wales, itself a landscape abundant with evidence of our own prehistory, Jo has created a new work especially for the space. Shown alongside this are her small-scale sculptures.

KYFFIN WILLIAMS : CENTENARY
Mar 24 - Jun 23, 2018
An exhibition from the Tabernacle Collection to mark 100 years since the birth of Kyffin Williams who was a great supporter of MOMA Machynlleth.

OPEN EYES : LINDSAY EVANS COLLECTION
Mar 24 - Jun 23, 2018
This exhibition explores, through the art collection made over the past fifty years by Lindsay Evans, the role of private purchasers in supporting visual culture. Lindsay Evans says he looked at art with open eyes and ‘succumbed to urge and impulse.’ Among the artists represented are Brenda Chamberlain, Alfred Janes, Ceri Richards, Mollie Winterburn and Ernest Zobole.

MORFYDD RANSOM-HALL: WAS IT WET THAT YEAR?
May 5 - Jun 16, 2018
Observations and Reflections on Cwm Ystwyth
Climate and weather impact upon the landscape season by season – sometimes violent sometimes gentle. Humans endeavour to dominate this environment, an activity that leaves its mark. Morfydd concentrates on the Anthropocene especially the Climate of the British Isles. The main work in this exhibition uses data collected by a ‘weather station’ at Cwmystwyth.

RHODRI OWEN: I’R BYW / TO THE QUICK
Jun 2 - 23, 2018
Rhodri’s hand-crafted furniture pieces are juxtaposed with pieces transformed by groups across Wales, supported by artists Manon Awst, Rebecca F. Hardy, Christine Mills, Llŷr Alun Jones, Bill Swann, Lisa-marie Tann, Catrin Williams, Pip Woolf and Kirstin Claxton. Marked, coloured, gouged or disjointed – these pieces express how life experiences leave their mark on us all.

DEIRDRE MCKENNA: OILEÁIN / YNYSOEDD
Jun 23 - Aug 4, 2018
Deirdre McKenna spent a month on a residency exchange here in September 2017. Her work is influenced by the traditions of her home in the South West of Ireland. As a native Irish speaker she was interested in exploring the connections between Wales and Ireland through the language and other cultural links. This exhibition is a result of that exploration.

Jun 23 - Aug 4, 2018
This exhibition is a series of paintings existing somewhere between reality and fantasy. They are imaginary, otherworldly and mystic places, but have been inspired by the striking mountains of Snowdonia. The paintings convey positivity and hope as light penetrates intensely through the shadows.
