Bodnant Art Gallery First Birthday Celebration
Bodnant Art Gallery celebrated its first birthday recently when it opened its doors to the public for a private viewing of new paintings by 20 Gallery artists.
Over 100 people attended the Preview, with 15 of the artists available to discuss the inspiration behind their paintings.
Brian Alcock, Managing Director, said, "We created the Art Gallery in 2018 in order to extend our support of Welsh Art. The Gallery is positioned on the first floor above our already successful Craft Centre which promotes 30 talented crafters and designers.”
The Gallery offers a diverse choice of styles, subjects and mediums, including everything from oils to acrylics, watercolours to pastels and mixed media. Some paintings even incorporate Marino wools, silk threads or sand.
Paul Pigram of Bodnant Art Studio and curator of the Gallery, said, “Many of the artists were individually approached by us and invited to show their work. Most of them are well known within the art community and some are emerging artists.
Bodnant Art Gallery gives them an opportunity to show their latest works within their own individual space, on a permanent basis, throughout the year.”
Bodnant Art Gallery is adjacent to the world famous Bodnant Garden which has over 250,000 visitors each year.
The Gallery is open 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm. There is ample free parking at Bodnant Garden car park, which is just a short walk from the Gallery.
