ART DROP 19 is a group of 11 invited artists chosen from the vibrant, local west Wales art scene, who will be exhibiting throughout February upstairs in Oriel 4 at Canfas in Cardigan. Llanarth artist, Natalie Chapman, grand daughter of the reknowned welsh painter George Chapman, has been invited to select and co curate this exhibition of hidden gems and bring them to the attention of a wider public.
“We want to create an ambitious and refreshing show by young and emerging artists and knew that Natalie was the perfect person to help us make this happen” said Canfas manager Anne Cakebread.
“This exciting new exhibition will stir things up, providing a transfusion of fresh blood into the gallery space. “
Works in the Art Drop 19 exhibition are from various disciplines from painting, textiles, ceramics and print, including Polly Dixon’s (pictured) intricate, multi plate prints of which interplay between the whimsical and the serious juxtaposed against Lola Rose Chapman’s serene dreamlike local landscape and seascape paintings.
