The “past and present” are represented by the Osi Rhys Osmond exhibition recently opened in the Chate Rom, while the “future”, appropriately, follows this with an exhibition of work from the current Foundation Course group from Carmarthen School of Art, of which Osi was Head of Department between 1988 and 1996.
Osi Rhys Osmond – ‘Looking Back’
We are delighted to be hosting an exhibition by Osi Rhys Osmond in the Chate room from now until 19th March. A special evening event will be held on Thursday March 5th between 5.30pm and 7.30pm, when the renowned poet Mererid Hopwood will give a short address on the work of this most respected artist.
This “retrospective” of Osi’s work includes large works in charcoal, intimate water colours and paintings of colour and power in both oil and mixed media, reflecting Osi’s interests in highly charged political events, as well as the business of pure painting.
Carmarthen School of Creative Arts – Foundation Diploma Group
We are also pleased to welcome a group of young artists at the other end of the learning experience, who are currently on the Foundation course at the Carmarthen School of Art. This is the first time the Foundation Department have exhibited with King Street Gallery and we hope it will become a regular event.
The exhibition, entitled ‘Respect’, runs from 20th – 26th March, with an opening event on 20th between 5.30 and 7.30pm.
‘Respect’ relates to Coleg Sir Gar’s cross-campus ‘Respect’ initiative, which encourages staff, students and the wider community to show respect to their environment and the people within it. Works from all four Foundation ‘Pathways’: Fine Art and Illustration, Visual Communications and Lens-Based Media, Fashion and Textiles, 3D Art & Design, will be included and could feature such diverse media as prints, paintings, ceramics, moving image, photography, textiles, and garments.
We are looking forward to an interesting exhibition!

We hope you can make it to at least one of these events and don’t forget that there are still plenty of bargains to be had in our Art Sale, which runs until the end of March
