Exhibition The Five  From Thursday 18 June until Sunday 19 July

The Five                                 Y Pum

Judy Roberts (painter), Pam Ing (sculptor), Phil Mumford (potter), Thomas Timms (photographer), and Gwilym Hughes (painter).

Ucheldre is delighted to show the work of The Five - a group of experienced artists who also exhibit in their own right. 

They describe themselves as a disparate group, which believes there should be no elitism in any creative endeavour, and who once a year get together in a multi-disciplined exhibition.

 Showing in the Exhibition Room until Sunday 19 July.

Ucheldre wrth ei fodd i ddangos y gwaith o Y Pum - grwp o artistiaid profiadol sydd hefyd yn arddangos yn eu rhinwedd eu hunain.

Maent yn disgrifio eu hunain fel grŵp amrywiol, sy'n credu y dylai fod unrhyw elitiaeth mewn unrhyw ymdrech greadigol, ac sydd unwaith y flwyddyn yn dod ynghyd mewn arddangosfa aml-ddisgybledig.

Yn dangos yn yr Ystafell Arddangos tan ddydd Sul 19 Gorffennaf.

Exhibition Silent Voices  From Thursday 18 June until Sunday 19 July

Silent Voices             Lleisiau Tawel

A thought-provoking exhibition of photographs taken by children and young people in the Palestinian village of Bil’in depicting their everyday lives.

The project was facilitated by the Liverpool photographer Elaine Stapleton at the behest of the Liverpool Friends of Bil’in.  Her images are included in the exhibition, along with those of the youngsters portraying the message they would like us to hear about their lives.

Arddangosfa pryfoclyd o ffotograffau a dynnwyd gan blant a phobl ifanc yn y pentref Palesteinaidd o Bil'in yn darlunio eu bywydau bob dydd.

  Cafodd y prosiect ei hwyluso gan y ffotograffydd Lerpwl Elaine Stapleton ar gais yr Lerpwl Cyfeillion Bil'in. Mae ei lluniau yn cael eu cynnwys yn yr arddangosfa, ynghyd â'r rhai o'r ieuenctid yn portreadu neges y byddent yn hoffi i ni glywed am eu bywydau.

Please note that this exhibition is being shown in the Aisles, in the Main Hall, where sometimes access is restricted if a film or other event is on.  Therefore, please check with the box office especially before travelling.  The Exhibition Room is always open and is showing the work of The Five.
