Click to enlargeHELEN ELLIOTT : "I WISH I COULD BE AN ARTIST..."
Nov 24, 2018 - Jan 12, 2019
The title was the short conversation Helen Elliott had with artist Stan Rosenthal in 1990. Although she was obsessed by painting from an early age, she’d been asked to leave the art class at school and told she couldn’t draw. This lack of art education let Helen explore her imagination in depth and experiment to develop a way of painting that is unique and memorable.

THEO CRUTCHLEY-MACK LOST WHALING STATIONS
Apr 13 - Jun 22, 2019 FINAL WEEK
Theo Crutchley-Mack was invited to be artist in residence on the island of South Georgia which lies 900 miles southeast of the Falklands in the Sub-Antarctic. The island is home to the forgotten Whaling Industries active throughout the 19th century; clearly evident in the sizeable stations scattered along the coastline in ruin. Theo strives to record the obscure landscape, often abandoned and remote. Located over 7500 miles from home, these industrial landscapes were an idyllic inspiration to begin his most ambitious series of paintings to date.

B E COLE : SEA GOLD 2019
Jul 6 - Aug 31, 2019
A fossil beach, sea creatures past and present; all around us is a wealth of flora and fauna which, as any beach-comber, sea-bather and walker of the coastal paths knows, can be devastated by ignorance and complacency. The seas feed us; the seas gave us life. The sculptures in this exhibition are built from recycled materials either as they were made or after they have been cast.

AG CAIN : PEOPLE, POSTERS, PLACES
Aug 3 - Sep 14, 2019
Ag Cain’s background as a lettering artist, coupled with an admiration for the marvellous work of the pre-war poster and enamel-sign artists, inspired him to start creating his own hand-lettered modern retro posters and paintings. Many feature an affectionate and optimistic take on holidaymaking, the seaside, railway advertising, and gloriously sunny Wales….and at least one features gin!

CLIVE HICKS-JENKINS : HANSEL & GRETEL
Aug 3 - Sep 14, 2019
Hansel & Gretel: a nightmare in eight scenes, by Simon Armitage, published in May by Design for Today, is the second book the poet has produced with Clive Hicks-Jenkins as illustrator, the first having been last year’s Sir Gawain and the Green Knight from Faber & Faber. Armitage’s Hansel & Gretel originated as the libretto of a work for chamber orchestra and puppets, and last year was performed on a national tour by the Berkeley Ensemble, in a production designed and directed by the artist.

ROGER CECIL
Sep 14 - Nov 23, 2019
The Roger Cecil exhibition at MOMA Machynlleth in 2017 was one of the most popular and critically acclaimed the gallery has ever shown. This exhibition is an opportunity to see more of his extraordinary legacy as a ‘secret artist’ now recognised as one of the most important painters Wales has produced. It includes major works on canvas alongside his highly accessible small works on paper.

ANTONIA SPOWERS : PAPER UNBOUND
Sep 14 - Nov 23, 2019
The work is currently exploring paper as a medium in a number of ways. There is an underlying theme of connection to landscape in the broadest sense plus experiments with surface, texture and form and the variety of paper itself as a medium. Work can be free standing, wall mounted or suspended. Antonia’s interest in paper stems from a time when she was working with water as paper is both formed in and by water.
