WATERY THEME ENLIVENS EASTER EXHIBITION
9:32am Thursday 17th March 2011 in Exhibitions
Water—the source of life. Capable of many contrasting moods—threatening with storms, tumbling in mountain streams, spouting in hot geysers. Linking distant shores, slaking thirsts, lying placidly in tranquil lakes. No wonder water (H2O), with its range of possible pictorial expressions, has been chosen as the theme of Fishguard Arts Society’s Easter exhibition.
Cllr Bob Wheatley, Mayor of Fishguard, opens the event at Ysgol Glannau Gwaun (Fishguard Junior School) on Saturday April 16 at 7 pm. Admission is free and opening times are 10.30 am to 5 pm daily, apart from Easter Sunday when the exhibition will be closed.
On Wednesday April 20 there is a drop-in workshop on simple ceramic figures from 10.30 am to 3 pm, and on April 27 a creative knitting workshop run by Barbara Price for which booking is essential. Further information on all FAS events can be found at www.fishguardartssociety.org.uk.
After the closing date of April 28 a selection of the work will be transferred to Oriel y Parc, St Davids, to form part of an exhibition which will also have the title H2O.
Art lovers are used to seeing finished work mounted, framed, and hung, but rarely have an opportunity to see the steps—sometimes painful, often with false starts and blind alleys—by which the work reached its final form. Such an opportunity will present itself from Tuesday April 5 at Fishguard Library.
In an exhibition called ‘Towards the Finished Work’, several members of Fishguard Arts Society will lay bare the creative processes that led to paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, films, and even poems. This exhibition closes on April 28. Seeing the flow of inspiration (and perspiration) captured on display should act as a stimulating aperitif to the H2O event.
