MONDAY ART GROUP SHOW

SIOE GRWP CELF DDYDD LLUN

 

The MAG was established in 2007, evolving from the then WEA group, for local aspiring artists to meet under the guidance of our tutor – artist Sue Griffiths.

We explore techniques, study the works of renowned painters and sculptors with the aim of developing our own personal styles.

Early on MAG was affiliated to the AAAC ( Association of Anglesey art clubs) which allowed members to enter the biennial art competition at Oriel Mon. Many of our members, past and present, have successfully exhibited at this competition and won major prizes.

Our group now has 18 members, all living on Anglesey, who meet on a weekly basis. This will be the first MAG solo show.  

 

Sefydlwyd y grŵp yn 2007, gan esblygu o'r grŵp WEA fel yr oedd ar y pryd, er mwyn i artistiaid lleol gyfarfod o dan arweiniad ein tiwtor – yr arlunydd Sue Griffiths.

Byddwn yn archwilio technegau, yn astudio gwaith paentwyr a cherflunwyr enwog gyda'r nod o ddatblygu ein dulliau personol ein hunain.

Yn gynnar, roedd y Grwp yn gysylltiedig â'r AAAC (Cymdeithas clybiau celf Ynys Môn) a oedd yn caniatáu i’n haelodau ymgymryd yn y gystadleuaeth gelf bob dwy flynedd yn Oriel Mon. Mae llawer o’n haelodau dros y blynyddoedd wedi arddangos yn llwyddiannus yn y gystadleuaeth hon ac wedi ennill prif wobrau.

Erbyn hyn, mae gan ein grŵp 18 o aelodau yn cyfarfod yn wythnosol a phob un ohonom yn byw ar Ynys Môn. Dyma fydd sioe gyntaf Grwp Celf ddydd Llun.

Exhibition runs until Sunday 10 March

Drama Cracked Saturday 9 February7.30pm

A Pontardawe Arts Centre Production

Cynhyrchiad Canolfan Celfyddydau Pontardawe

Cracked

By/Gan Emily Hinshelwood

Directed by Louise Osbornand & Designed by Becky Davies

How do you know when you have crossed the line?

Would you even know that you had crossed the line?

Mick Evans has a problem. Well, a few problems really. His childhood imaginary friend, Cavelle, has become an inner voice that torments him at every turn.

If that wasn’t enough, his professional life is in tatters as a result of his attachment to Stewart, an unruly pupil. The system doesn’t suit people like Mick, people who don’t conform, people who don’t toe the line... people like Stewart Skinner.

But how did it get this bad? And how do you get back when you have hit rock bottom?

Cracked is a moving, thought-provoking play about vulnerability, mental well-being and the universal need for love.

Features adult themes/strong language. Suitable for age 14+

Supported by the Arts Council of Wales, Welsh Government and the National Lottery

This event runs alongside a workshop also to be held at Ucheldre


Cyfarwyddwyd gan Louise Osborn

Dyluniwyd gan Becky Davies

 

Sut rydych chi'n gwybod eich bod chi wedi croesi'r llinell?

A fyddech chi hyd yn oed yn gwybod eich bod chi wedi croesi'r llinell?

Mae gan Mick Evans broblem. Wel, sawl problem a dweud y gwir.

Mae ei ffrind dychmygol o'i blentyndod, Cavelle, fel llais mewnol sy'n ei boenydio ar bob cyfle.

A phe na bai hynny'n ddigon, mae ei fywyd proffesiynol ar chwâl o ganlyniad i'w ymlyniad â Stewart, disgybl afreolus. Dyw'r system ddim yn hoffi pobl fel Mick, pobl nad ydynt yn cydymffurfio, pobl nad ydynt yn ufuddhau... pobl fel Stewart Skinner.

Ond sut aeth pethau mor wael? Sut rydych chi'n codi unwaith eto ar ôl bwrw'r gwaelod?

Drama deimladwy sy'n ysgogi'r meddwl am ddiamddiffynnedd, lles meddyliol a'r angen cyffredinol am gariad yw Cracked.

Yn cynnwys themâu oedolion/iaith gref. Yn addas i blant 14+ oed 

Fe'i cefnogir gan Gyngor Celfyddydau Cymru, Llywodraeth Cymru a'r Loteri Genedlaethol
