Diary — Exhibitions

Anglesey has a rich heritage of modern art. Many of its living artists are members of the 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 shop.

Portraits Old and New • Portreadau Hen a Newydd

An exhibition of striking new portraits by Manchester based artist Emma Knowles. Her work aims to make a connection to the sitter, to consider and explore the complexity of the visual experience and the underlying tensions, emotions and overwhelming power of presence the individual possesses. She seeks to strip back any distractions, and to reveal the basic, raw material through paint.  Amongst other more recent work will be a section called Closer which is a series of portraits of sitters five years on from when she last painted them. She believes these to be ‘closer’, more urgent by eliminating clothing, and distraction in terms of background colour, revealing a ‘nude’ colour palette.


Arddangosfa o bortreadau newydd trawiadol gan yr arlunydd o Fanceinion, Emma Knowles. Mae ei gwaith yn ceisio creu cyswllt â’r eisteddwr, ystyried ac archwilio presenoldeb y profiad gweledol a’r tensiynau o dan yr wyneb, yr emosiynau a’r grymllethol o bresenoldeb sydd gan yr unigolyn. Mae’n ceisio diosg unrhyw bethau a all dynnusylw oddi wrthynt, a datgelu’r deunydd sylfaenol, crai trwy baent.Ymysg gwaith arall mwy diweddar fe fydd adran o’r enw Closer, sef cyfres o bortreadau oeisteddwyr bum mlynedd ar ôl iddi eu paentio nhw’r tro ddiwethaf. Cred bod bod y lluniau hyn yn mynd yn nes at y gwrthrych, yn fwy treiddgar trwy gael gwared ar ddillad, heb liw cefndir i dynnu sylw, gan ddatgelu palet lliwiau ‘noeth’.
