Exhibition Textiles in Transition
Saturday 27 April  

Gallery Exhibition

Dorothy Russell

Textiles in Transition

The art Dorothy exhibits is usually produced by painting, printing, piecing, quilting and embellishing textiles. Her work as a textile artist has gained her recognition and awards. Some of this work can be seen on the Portfolio pages of her website. As a Quilt artist, she takes inspiration from many sources, including the natural world, politics, news and history.

Her work includes traditional and contemporary approaches, but always at its heart is a fascination with the materials themselves. Silk particularly attracts her with its lustrous quality and glowing acceptance of paints and dyes. She cannot imagine working in any other medium – there is so much yet to discover. for more information please click here.

Fel arfer, wrth gynhyrchu gwaith i’w arddangos, bydd Dorothy yn peintio, printio, cwiltio ac addurno tecstiliau. Mae wedi ennill cydnabyddiaeth a gwobrau am ei gwaith fel artist tecstiliau. Gellir gweld rhai darnau o’i gwaith ar y tudalennau ‘Portffolio’ ar ei gwefan. Fel artist cwiltiau, caiff ei hysbrydoli gan nifer o ffynonellau, gan gynnwys y byd naturiol, gwleidyddiaeth, y newyddion a hanes.

Mae’n defnyddio dulliau traddodiadol a chyfoes, ond ei diddordeb ysol yn y deunyddiau eu hunain sy’n ganolog i’w gwaith. Mae sidan, yn arbennig, yn ei denu oherwydd ei ansawdd moethus a’r modd y mae’n ymateb i baent a llifynnau. Ni all ddychmygu gweithio mewn unrhyw gyfrwng arall – mae cymaint i’w ddarganfod eto.

Literary Rhwng: Body as Imaginal
Saturday 1 July10am - 4pm

Rhwng: Body as Imaginal

with Fiona Owen

 

According to poet and writer Dennis Slattery, 'the body's own story is as integral to exploring personal myth as is any other dimension of our becoming' (Riting Myth, Mythic Writing). During this day together, we will explore - through writing meditations, playful exercises, myth and poetry - ways to access our own stories. The day is open to all levels of ability and interest. You are invited to bring something related to the theme, to read or sing for the culminating session of the day..

Fiona Owen has had five collections of poetry published, the latest being The Green Gate (Cinnamon Press) She teaches creative writing, literature and other arts/humanities subjects for the Open University, and writes and records songs with Gorwel Owen, the latest CD being Releasing Birds. She is in training as a poetry therapy practitioner, and directs Ucheldre Literary Society and Rhwng: the Point Between. For more information about Rhwng please click here.
