SUMMER EXHIBITION 2014 - PART TWO
PRIVATE VIEW - Sunday 27th July 12-4pm
Join us for Pimm's and strawberries
On 27th July, in celebration of the centenary of Dylan Thomas' birth, we will be launching a new limited edition of 100 prints by David Griffiths, the renowned Welsh portrait painter. LLAREGGUB is loosely based on the characters of Under Milk Wood. The original was painted in an attic bedroom in Tufnell Park, London when the artist was a first year student at the Slade School of Fine Art. It was exhibited at the 1958 National Eisteddfod, Ebbw Vale, where it was acquired by the Museum and Art Gallery, Newport. It was almost contemporary with the first BBC radio production of Under Milk Wood, starring Richard Burton. Peter Finch, former Chief Executive of the Welsh Academy, describes the picture as having considerable historical significance.
The print is now available to purchase from the gallery either unframed or framed. Please contact the gallery for further information.
For the second half of the Summer Exhibition, we have had new work in from Garry Pereira, Marie Wrightson, Sian McGill, David Barnes, Sion McIntyre, Pauline Beynon, Andrew Douglas Forbes (due in on 27th July).
