This year’s annual winter open has attracted over 100 pieces of art. From a nationwide ‘call out’ submissions came from across Wales, the South West, London and Austria.
Works were submitted by local established artists, for example, Philippa Sibert and Osi Rhys Osmond, to student and lecturers from Carmarthen School of Art, to emerging artists, far and wide.
Lynne Crompton, curator and gallery manager, added that it was important to offer a platform for artists, irrespective of training and status. Crompton joked that this year’s show will resemble that of the Royal Academy!
The works on show include paintings, drawings, printmaking, sculpture and ceramics. From abstraction to realism, to the decorative and representational, most media have been presented.
As Christmas draws nearer, the Winter Open provides a great opportunity to purchase work as presents or as a treat for yourself. Gift vouchers and an interest free purchase scheme are available.
The gallery opens weekly, every Wednesday to Saturday, from 10am till 5pm. Other times for viewing the gallery are available by request. For further information, see website or contact Lynne Crompton.
