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
||Patchwork and Quilts
Each year the walls of the Ucheldre are hung with the exquisite work of members
of the patchwork classes held here at Ucheldre.
Whether they are intended to be used day to day or as heirloom pieces, they
hang side by side in a glorious mass of colour. The patterns and designs are
stunning from a distance, then you are pulled in closer to look and wonder at
the stitching and construction.
Eunice Lord is the class tutor, and under her leadership these beautiful quilts
have been made and accumulated. Eunice
has been running these classes, sharing her knowledge and skill, for very many
years. But this year she has decided to retire.
We at Ucheldre are really sorry that she is to do so but wish her well. Though
we are sure that she will still be involved in some way.
The classes are to continue under new leadership this coming autumn; just in
case this exhibition entices you to come along and learn how to make something similar
yourself. Even if you already have this talent it is always lovely to meet and
share with others of a like mind.
Exhibition runs until Sunday 2 June

|| Clare Marie Bailey: Parallel Lives
Clare Marie Bailey
Clare Marie Bailey is an analogue photographer and
filmmaker who was born and grew up on the Island of Anglesey in Wales.
Clare’s work centred on
self-portraits, is heavily influenced by the Cinema, Magical Iconography,
Dreams, the Counterculture of the 1960’s and B-Movies. Clare works with film to
create an alternative and parallel world where she can co-exist with the ‘real’
world and is fascinated with the idea of ‘doubles’ and
‘doppelgangers’ and the concept of reinvention.
