Art at Waunifor is holding its eighth annual End of Summer Art Exhibition from Saturday 22 to Monday 31 August this year, with a fabulous display of recent work from over thirty local artists. Many of them exhibit regularly with us, and returning visitors may be intrigued to see how their work has developed. They are joined by artists exhibiting at Waunifor for the first time, and altogether present a broad range of artistic disciplines and applications. The works include paintings with a variety of subject matter (landscape, portrait, dancers, plants, abstraction) using different media, prints, sculpture, glass, mixed media, books and an eclectic mix of ‘art crafts’. All of which should ensure that visitors find plenty to pique their interest.
Our special feature this year is textile and fibre arts, and we have invited a number of people who incorporate weaving, tapestry, embroidery, felting, dyeing and other techniques to create tactile and beautiful textile pieces. Included are women from the Swansea area who belong to the Itchy Fingers group of textile artists. The members meet together regularly and create exciting, very high quality pieces of artwork, which are widely exhibited. We are fortunate to have their work on display this year.
Among the artists participating are: David Beattie, Ainsley Hillard, Carole King, Valerie Land, Charlotte Leadbeater, Guy Manning, Diane Mathias, Ruth Packham, Valerie Price West, Ruth Sargeant, Judith Stroud, Rhona Tooze and many more.
David Small, Waunifor’s resident potter, will be displaying and selling his work in the studio behind the Mansion House.
As usual, the exhibition will be held in the bright and spacious Cedar Hall at Waunifor, and will be open daily from 10am to 5pm. Admission to the exhibition is FREE.
Visitors can relax with refreshments, snacks, homemade cakes and light lunches in the Rendezvous Café, open from 11am to 4pm during the exhibition. The grounds around Cedar Hall and the Rendezvous Café are very pleasant and can be explored.
