Exhibition Exhibition: TIME AND TIDE

Time and Tide

Exhibition Opens at 2pm all are invited

As this is the year of the sea the group decided to focus on

the beauty and diversity of what the oceans are and hold!

 

Theresa Fox-Byrne’s body of work focuses directly on societies throw away plastic culture. All kinds of plastic waste end up in the sea and plastic packaging, net, milk bottle tops, pharmaceutical drug packaging are but a small part of a group of installation pieces that will shock and hopefully create some discussion when viewed! 

Mae gwaith Theresa Fox-Byrne yn canolbwyntio’n uniongyrchol ar y diwylliant taflu plastig sy’n rhan o’n cymdeithas. Mae pob mathau o wastraff plastig yn cyrraedd pen eu taith yn y môr, ac nid yw pecynnau plastig, rhwydi, topiau poteli llefrith a phecynnau cyffuriau fferyllol ond rhan fach o grŵp o ddarnau gosod i beri sioc ac a fydd gobeithio yn creu rhywfaint o drafod pan gaiff ei weld!

Cheryl Crichton-Edwards has created abstract mixed media landscapes and seascapes using found objects. She has incorporated stitch, weave, and drawn marks on paper and cloth that are a direct response to the landscape and seascape of North Wales.

Mae Cheryl Crichton-Edwards wedi creu tirluniau a morluniau haniaethol cyfryngau cymysg gan ddefnyddio gwrthrychau y cafodd hyd iddynt. Mae wedi ymgorffori pwytho a gwehyddu ac wedi llunio marciau ar bapur a brethyn sy’n ymateb uniongyrchol i dirwedd a morwedd gogledd Cymru.

Pat Butters has focused her theme on seascapes and coastal walks around North Wales using beautiful Welsh wools and stitch. She tries not only to capture the beauty and diversity of the seas but also the power and magnificence of nature.

Mae thema Pat Butters yn canolbwyntio ar forweddau a theithiau cerdded arfordirol o amgylch gogledd Cymru gan ddefnyddio gwlân a phwytho hyfryd Cymreig. Mae hi’n ceisio dal prydferthwch ac amrywiaeth y moroedd yn ogystal â grym ac ysblander natur. 

Anwen Hughes has focused her work on creating felted pieces using Welsh wool, driftwood and washed up objects that she has collected from around the North Wales coastline. She also is passionate about the Welsh language and has included sayings and poetry into her pieces.

Mae Anwen Hughes wedi canolbwyntio ei gwaith ar greu darnau ffelt gan ddefnyddio gwlân Cymreig, broc môr a gwrthrychau a olchwyd i’r lan a gasglwyd ganddi o gwmpas arfordir gogledd Cymru. Mae hi hefyd yn cynnwys ymadroddion a barddoniaeth Gymraeg yn ei darnau oherwydd ei chariad angerddol at yr iaith.

Exhibition runs until Friday 5 October / Arddangosfa yn rhedig tan dydd Gwener 5 Hydref

Entertaining Angels

by Richard Everett

The Ucheldre Rep, ends it's 2018 season of productions at the Ucheldre Centre with

"Entertaining Angels" by Richard Everett.

Sandra Fraser takes on the role of Grace, who as a clergy wife has spent a lifetime on her best behaviour.   Now, following the death of her husband Bardolph, she is enjoying her new-found freedom to do and say exactly as she pleases.   But the return of her eccentric missionary sister Ruth, together with some disturbing revelations, force Grace to confront the truth of her marriage.  

With sharp-edged comedy and probing wit, this play asks whether God can be trusted to do anything right at all.   'Or is the whole thing a divine exercise in trial and error?'  

Directed by Tom Wallwork.   

Evenings from 29th November - 1st December at 7.30pm.
