David Nash: Sculpture through the Seasons is the largest and most ambitious exhibition of David Nash's work ever presented in Wales. The exhibition will mark the fiftieth anniversary of the artist living and working in Capel Rhiw – a former Methodist chapel in Blaenau Ffestiniog, north Wales. 

The exhibition features key sculptures from the late 1960s to the present day, exploring the different ways the artist has cut, carved and manipulated wood to produce sculptures that sit between the abstract and figurative.  

Trees and the natural environment are central to Nash’s work which extends to living sculptures including Ash Dome - a work that emerged from the planting of a circle of 22 ash trees in 1977.  These time-based works are included in the exhibition through documentation including photographs, films and drawings.

David Nash is one of Britain’s most important artists – his work has featured in exhibitions across the world and he is represented in many major museum collections. This international reputation was formed in the particulars of place and environment – the studio at Capel Rhiw and the seasons and elements of the surrounding Snowdonia landscape.
