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.

Exhibition Patchwork and Quilts

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

Exhibition          Clare Marie Bailey:  Parallel Lives

Parallel Lives

Bywydau Paralel

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.

Ffotogra ydd analog a gwneuthurwr lmiau yw Clare Marie Bailey a gafodd eigeni a'i magu ar Ynys Môn.

Mae'r Sinema, Eiconogra eg Hudol, Breuddwydion, Gwrth-ddiwylliant y 1960au a Ffilmiau-B wedi dylanwadu'n fawr ar waith Clare, sy'n canolbwyntio ar hunan-bortreadau. Mae Clare yn gweithio gyda ffilmiau i greu byd amgen a pharalel lle y gall gyd-fodoli â'r byd 'go iawn' ac mae'n ymddiddori yn y syniad o 'ddyblau' a 'doppelgangers' a'r cysyniad o ailddyfeisio.
