Anglesey has a rich heritage of modern art.
Many of its living artists are members of
Anglesey Arts Forum,
which also coordinates the
Anglesey Art Weeks each April.
The main art exibitions cover the
whole range of the visual arts, from classical painting to avant-garde sculpture,
and provide opportunities for display by local,
national, and international artists.
They typically change every six weeks, and
are housed in the exhibition space and main hall.
A selection of art is for sale in the Ucheldre Kitchen and the

Michelle Woodward: Here Now and Then
Ink drawings of buildings and structures around Holyhead and North Wales.
The Exhibition contains a number of Michelle's line drawings which are for sale. In her artist's statement she writes:"I love the immediacy of pen and ink, the exciting lines and textures that can be made with the pen. I also enjoy working with a limited colour palette. The work in this Exhibition combines my love of line and colour, with the proportions, shapes and details that I see in the structures around me.
I studied Art & Design in London and Brighton in the 1970s. It was there that I began to develop my interest in making drawings of buildings. This has developed over the years and the wonderful proportions and textures of the buildings here in North Wales have been a source of inspiration to me for many years.
These drawings are a personal interpretation and record of the buildings and structures that I love around Anglesey and beyond.
Having attended the Convent School as a girl, it is really exciting for me that nearly forty years later, I am now displaying my work in the former chapel, now the Ucheldre Centre. The drawings ‘Chapel Altar’ and ‘The Sanctuary’ are originals of the altar in the chapel from twenty five years ago. Every time I return to Holyhead my connection to the town and the island is strengthened."
