Latest news from the Oriel Myrdddin Gallery in Carmarthen - 

Anthony Stokes and Jacqueline Poncelet: Bryn Ogwr
8 March/Mawrth - 26 April/Ebrill 2014
Bryn Ogwr is the name of the house in Cwm Ogwr (Ogmore Vale) where Jacqueline Poncelet and Anthony Stokes now live and work. The two separate bodies of recent work in this exhibition were made at Bryn Ogwr; the paintings (Jacqueline Poncelet) and the photographs (Anthony Stokes) respond directly to the surrounding land and townscape. Although there are differences in the medium and methods used to make these works, there are also surprising visual relationships and complementary formal arrangements.

Print International/Printiau Rhyngwladol
3 May/Mai – 14 June/Mehefin 2014
Print International is the 6th edition of a selected exhibition of prints, on tour from Oriel Wrexham. The exhibition was selected by Professor David Ferry from Cardiff School of Art & Design. It incorporates printmaking in its broadest sense, from etchings and lithographs to digital prints and photocopies. Work included is by well-known printmakers based in Wales, as well as international artists working in Europe.

Daniel Crawshaw: High Country Gothic
21 June/Mehefin – 26 July/Gorffennaf 2014
Daniel Crawshaw’s painting is based on his experiences of travel through rugged and remote terrains of Wales. These almost photographic images of the snow encrusted mountains of Snowdonia were made after extensive field trips in the imposing landscape of North Wales. The Snowdonia National Park Authority provided Daniel with a temporary studio space at their Visitor Centre in Betws y Coed.

Farm Shop
2 August/Awst – 20 September/Medi 2014
Paul Emmanuel, Richard Higlett, Judith Rees, Fern Thomas, Craig Wood
Farm Shop is an exhibition conceived and curated by artist, Paul Emmanuel. First shown in Paul’s studio space, a large agricultural building in the Brecon Beacons of South Wales, Farm Shop is both a conceptual and a physical space where ideas about the cultured activity of ‘art’ and the rural activities of farming and rural productivity come together. The five artists included in the show all explore ideas of materiality ‘a common approach to physical stuff, its inherent references and its conceptual malleability’* although the form and expression of their work are varied.
The works – now installed in the formal setting of an art gallery – will inevitably take on new ideas and contexts, but continue to ask questions about the artist in relationship to the rural environment.
