ROGER CECIL
Sep 14 - Nov 23, 2019 FINAL WEEK
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 FINAL WEEK
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.

TABERNACLE COLLECTION : JOHN DAVIES BEQUEST
Sep 21 - Nov 23, 2019 FINAL WEEK
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.

BEN JONES : SLATE LANDSCAPES
Sep 21 - Nov 23, 2019 FINAL WEEK
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.

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.

JAMIE BARNES : SEA STRUCTURES
Oct 5, 2019 - Jan 26, 2020
Inspired his explorations of coastal paths around Wales, Anglesey, Northumberland, Cumbria and Scotland. A curious set of accompanying sea structures started to appear in Jamie’s work, not only the obvious structures such as lighthouses, but also more unusual, such as orientation beacons, transmitters and glowering power stations.
 
Drawing underpins Jamie’s practice, transforming his line drawing through the magic of the aquatint etching process. He values etching for the quality of line it can produce, its depth of texture and for the random marks picked up by the process which he often chooses to preserve.

AS IT IS : MAN’S FOOTPRINT ON THE WELSH LANDSCAPE
Oct 16, 2019 - Jan 26, 2020
Photographs by Magnum photographer David Hurn, accompanied by a film about the artist by Zed Nelson.

NOBUKO TSUCHIYA : 30 WAYS TO GO TO THE MOON
Nov 9, 2019 - Mar 1, 2020
This new body of work by Japanese artist Nobuko Tsuchiya is showing for the first time in Wales.
 
Working primarily with sculpture, Tsuchiya’s practice uses a wide range of materials, often including household objects, collected over time, which she assembles and casts to create amorphous, hybrid minimalist mechanical objects.

Nov 9, 2019 - Mar 1, 2020
Featuring new and recent works, the exhibition, About this and that. The self and the other. Like everything. includes a collaborative site specific work created for MOSTYN.
 
Working primarily across drawing, sculpture and installation, Camoni creates spaces imbued with poetic sensibility. Her work is the result of a process which she calls ‘deviations’ where materials are sourced through chance encounters and individuals or ‘various authors’ close to her. Through this process, Camoni claims that ‘meaning is shared, it’s a small miracle. It’s her and their way of resisting – the fear, the passage of time, the news of the day’.

ANJ SMITH
Nov 9, 2019 - Mar 1, 2020
Working primarily with painting, Anj Smith is interested in reflecting on the very possibilities and limitations of the medium itself.
 
Her work excavates often-overlooked art histories, which she combines with her lived experiences, to form the layers of her work. Exploring the very edges of representation, Smith's ’s intricately rendered paintings explore issues of identity, eroticism, mortality and fragility. Within her remarkably detailed works, wildly feral landscapes, ambiguous figures, textiles, and rare and exotic flora and fauna are used, weaving archaic traditions and contemporary signs together into a personal cosmology. Her paintings are rich in detail, colour and texture, collapsing strict definitions of portraiture, landscape and still-life whilst allowing elements of each to coexist.
