Press release for Sarah Nickless, Aberdyfi artist.
Local artists are cooking up a feast for the eyes and showcasing their work in a large kitchen in Aberdyfi.
The exhibition has two aims- to display the work of local part-time artists, and to celebrate the beautiful landscape of Aberdyfi and the surrounding area. The show will feature an interesting array of styles and materials, and admission is free of charge.
Landscape painters will exhibit alongside textile artists, and there will be a display of paintings, cards, T-shirts, jewellery and furniture.
The five day long event will feature the work of seven artists from diverse backgrounds and will be staged from 6pm on Thursday, April 17. The show will then run from 10am- 4pm from Friday 18 until Monday 21 (inclusive) at 4 Hafan Dyfi, off Copperhill Street.
“Every artist is very different in style, material choice, and age”, said organiser Sarah Nickless, an Aberdyfi-based landscape artist.
“I will be exhibiting oil and acrylic paintings, and observational sketches based on the landscape around Aberdyfi, and my mum Angie Nickless will showcase her abstract paintings which are based on home life.
“Joel Taylor has just joined the Aberdyfi community and he will be displaying graphic illustrations with a folk art theme. Gill Bailey is very well established and creates seaside-inspired jewellery, while Ian Hughes is an illustrator and portrait artist.
“We also have a Polish surf artist joining us, Jakub Batycki, who is based in Aberystwyth”, said Sarah.
“This event will demonstrate that we are a very arty community and we hope lots of people will come and see our work, and enjoy a lovely day out in Aberdyfi.”
