Paint Dada: Oriel Canfas

poète assassiné 50


























Group painting show at Oriel Canfas, Cardiff, curated by Jo Berry with principles of Dada in mind.
11 – 26 Jan 2019
Opening event: Friday 11 Jan, 7.00 – 9.00 pm.

Paintings that either reject a traditional aesthetic, display a sense of the absurd, experiment with modes of display or use collage, appropriation or juxtaposition. Paintings to raise some awkward questions about painting. The artists in the show are all members of Painters Club.

Canalworks

Lining 5x4'




















Exhibition and related events exploring major engineering works on the Monmouthsire & Brecon Canal.

During the winter of 2016 /17 the Llangattock stretch of the canal was closed and drained for repair and re-lining, interrupting the flow of water and navigation from the Beacons to the Sea. This exhibition shows these engineering works in progress, in the context of industrial heritage and the interchange of human and natural forces. Painting, drawing, video and found objects from the canal, its feeder streams and the interconnecting network of paths, tramways and roads.

Exhibition: 5 Oct – 11 Nov. Andrew Lamont Gallery, Brecon, LD3 7EW
Canal walk: 29 Oct 2-4pm with Kevin Phillips of Canal and River Trust
Poetry and Performance: 4 Nov 5.30 – 6.30 with GhostJam and Canalchemy at Andrew Lamont Gallery

 A response to re:Source by Frances Presley

“This has so many different dimensions – at times in the reality of the micro-hydro, at times in some supercharged realm. Always returning to the insistent flow of the water”

Thanks to LGV, BBNPA’s SDF, and A&B Cymru’s CultureStep Investment Programme to strengthen and develop Jones and Hallas’s creative partnership with LGV.
