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.

RUTH KOFFER & ANNE FERRIS : SEARCHING FOR THE LIGHT
Sep 21 - Nov 16, 2019 FINAL WEEK
A collection of colourful sketches created for Birmingham Buddhist centre as a spiritual practice of appreciation, receptivity and celebration of beauty in nature. Ruth works in bold colouring pencils while she walks and takes in the special Autumn light. Her drawings are friendly and joyful.

BORTH ARTS : LIGHT-GOLAU
Sep 21 - Nov 16, 2019 FINAL WEEK
Borth Arts are a group of artists living and working in Borth and Ynyslas. Using a variety of media and techniques, this diverse group is connected and inspired by the unique environment of Borth – sea, beach, mountains, colour and ever-changing light. Both artists and location are literally on the edge, trapped between the sea and the mountains.
 
The group’s aim is to support artists living and working locally, not only providing opportunities for exhibiting their work, but also creating opportunities for the sharing of expertise and the learning of new skills. It believes that arts and culture play an important role in the enrichment and wellbeing of the wider community.

TABERNACLE COLLECTION : JOHN DAVIES BEQUEST
Sep 21 - Nov 23, 2019
Our own Tabernacle Collection now includes over 300 works, mainly by Welsh artists. This is an opportunity to see a selection of work from the collection, made possible by John Davies and other benefactors.

Click to enlargeBEN JONES : SLATE LANDSCAPES
Sep 21 - Nov 23, 2019
Ben Jones’ sculptures re-visit the old tradition, reworking stone carving to realise new alignments and feelings. Carving with an inexpressive material to communicate a consciousness in unforgiving slate is the hope. The overlaying of mass and line in compressed space might begin to describe landscape sensations that call back to older experiences.

FAUXIDERMY
Nov 23, 2019 - Jan 11, 2020

VALÉRIANE LEBLOND
Nov 23, 2019 - Jan 11, 2020

DANIEL J YEOMANS : NORTH TO SOUTH
Nov 30, 2019 - Jan 18, 2020
Daniel studied in Florence, has works hanging in collections worldwide and his ‘self-portrait No3’ was recently added to the National Welsh Library collection. With fluid brushwork and light reminiscent of the impressionists Daniel’s latest collection of oil landscapes takes you on a painted exploration of his most-loved and hidden treasures around Wales.

ANN WILLIAMS : MAKING. TEACHING. COLLECTING
Nov 30, 2019 - Jan 18, 2020
Ann Williams' work conveys her sense of place. Originally from South Wales, she has lived in Aberystwyth, working as a teacher, for most of her adult life. She explores her environment through a variety of media often leading to semi - abstract conclusions. Art has been central to everything she does - making, teaching and collecting.
