“It’s irresistible. I’ve been back six times and I‘ve been bringing all my friends. Fantastic!” Gallery visitor, February 2022
Exhibition on display until 13 March.
Also at the Gallery in March, two exhibitions by Welsh female artists, Fern Thomas and Zoe Preece,
Fern Thomas’ exhibition, Spirit Mirror, draws on her research into local suffragist, politician, philanthropist and spiritualist Winifred Coombe Tennant (1874 – 1956) and features never seen before works by William Blake and writer, Victor Hugo, from the Gallery’s own Collection, alongside the artist’s own ‘interventions’.
Zoe Preece’s exhibition, In Reverence, uses expertly crafted objects such as kitchen utensils and other objects made in porcelain and wood. In her work, she explores themes of domesticity, memory and absence through these ghostly objects.
Watch artist Zoe Preece in Conversation with Dr Frances Woodley from Friday 11 March, at 6pm on the Glynn Vivian You Tube Channel, as they share their thoughts and inspiration behind the work in, In Reverence.
