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.

LLOYD JONES
Jan 18 - Feb 29, 2020
Foyer Gallery
 
Lloyd Jones almost died of the drink 18 years ago. This exhibition is a record of his own era in a rapidly changing world. Lloyd is a quirky but otherwise unexceptional man with a camera, which is usually on the ‘idiot’ setting. He makes no attempt to be arty, but is interested in the human aesthetic as he perceives it. For him, the camera is a personal interrogation: what is he looking at, and why?

JOHN ROGERS : 80
Jan 25 - Mar 2, 2020
Pulpit Room & Owen Owen Gallery
 
The exhibition comprises work from a 63-year period, including examples in various media, which develop into wild landscapes made in Pembrokeshire and eventually the western seaboard from Africa to Iceland.

DAVID WOODFORD R.C.A : BEING THERE
Mar 7 - May 9, 2020
Ruralist Room
 
David Woodford paints and draws the elemental landscape, mainly in Snowdonia. For 50 years this has served as his focus, apprehended in all weathers and seasons.

CHRISTOPHER MIKE : FROM DAWN TO DUSK
Mar 7 - May 9, 2020
Foyer Gallery
 
A body of work largely inspired by the land and seascapes of Mid Wales.

REFUGE AND RENEWAL : MIGRATION AND BRITISH ART
Mar 14 - Jun 6, 2020
Pulpit Room, Owen Owen Gallery, Bridge & Tannery
 
This exhibition looks at how artist refugees have affected art in Britain. With a focus on émigrés from Nazi Europe and some of the British artists they influenced, it also looks back to the Franco-Prussian War and the First World War and forward to present-day artists from the Middle East.
Loans from major public and private collections make this one of MOMA’s most ambitious ever exhibitions. Artists include Camille and Lucien Pissarro, W. R. Sickert, Valerius de Saedeleer, Naum Gabo, Kurt Schwitters, Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, Peter Lanyon, Josef Herman, Heinz Koppel, Josef Koudelka, Samira Kitman and Mona Hatoum.
 
In collaboration with the Royal West of England Academy, curated by Peter Wakelin. Supported by The Richard and Ann Mayou Fund. An accompanying book is published by Sansom.

Mar 14 - Jun 6, 2020
Running concurrently to the 'Refuge and Renewal' exhibition, Daniel Trivedy’s 'Welsh Emergency Blanket' is an ongoing series of work that responds to the proposal for Wales to become the first Nation of Sanctuary, bringing two visual elements and their associations together. The first element draws on the distinctive pattern of Welsh blankets, the second is the gold emergency blanket commonly seen in documentary photography, relating to refugee camps.
