Mawddach Art Group Exhibition

The Mawddach Art Group has been meeting once a week for around 20 years. There are 14 members, all amateur, some with formal training, others self-taught. All members are now over 60 years old.  There are no restrictions, as such, when it comes to media. “It depends on what you’re prepared to carry up the stairs to the school room above Christ Church! We all have one thing in common – we love to create – be it painting, drawing, collage, sculpture or photography,” says Ann Hickebottom, who organises the group’s exhibitions.

St John’s Hall Gallery is pleased to show the latest work of the group and support this group of artists.

The exhibition will be open 11am to 4:30pm Tuesday to Sunday, closed on Mondays.

The gallery is now open to the public again after long refurbishment work over the winter and spring. There is a new internal layout of the display boards creating four ‘rooms’. The large painting, Captives of the Cosmic Web, has been rehung on the north wall and the first of the ceiling panels (the Mythic Dreamer of the Gobekli Tepe – read more) has been put up.

The new exhibitions are a family affair. The art by Bernard Barnes (Fragments of Devon), Reyna Rushton, Sasha Barnes and Alyosha Barnes is all on display and for sale. There will also be an area inviting your participation in considering the refugee crisis.
