Regular and Repeated Events
MOSTYN – Llandudno
Exhibition: In-sight 16 Helfa Gelf Art Trail
A new collection of work by artists from North Wales upstairs at MOSTYN, in partnership with Helfa Gelf Art Trail.
Niki Cotton / Nader Kohbodi / Susie Liddle / Hilary Reed / Amanda Shields / Geraldine Swatridge
The exhibition is curated by Barry Morris, MOSTYN. This showcase offers you a glimpse of Helfa Gelf Art Trail, Wales’s largest open studio event, which takes place across Gwynedd, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham. We see this as a valuable opportunity for our visitors to experience some of the exciting and diverse work being produced in the region.
Exhibition: Josephine Meckseper
We are pleased to present both existing work and new commissions in the first solo exhibition in Wales, and the first institutional solo exhibition in a decade, by German born and New York based artist Josephine Meckseper.
One of the foremost female artists of her generation working today, Meckseper’s work combines the aesthetic language of modernism with the formal languages of commercial display and advertising. In her shop window installations, large-scale display sculptures and films, she exposes the paradoxes of consumer culture through the combination of mass-produced objects with images and artefacts of historical and political events.
At the core of the exhibition will be a set of glass, resin and steel sculptures, along with two dimensional and film work.
Exhibition: Louisa Gagliardi – Under the Weather
We are delighted to present the first solo exhibition in a UK institution of the work of Switzerland born and Zurich based artist Louisa Gagliardi.
Gagliardi’s work pulls apart the construction of an image, and of our society, in a digital age while appearing to explore the codes and history.
Exhibition: Ruth Thomas
Our series of solo exhibitions celebrating contemporary printmaking continues in Gallery 6 with North Wales based printmaker Ruth Thomas.
Using her late mothers’ notebooks which documented her daily walks in the country side, writing about the passing of the seasons, the sky, the weather, plants and all the wildlife she saw. Ruth has used fragments of her mother’s tiny handwriting blown up very large to produce an abstract gesture.
All of the work in the exhibition has been created using printmaking techniques, including relief printing, stencil and collagraph. Utilizing natural objects found on walks including feathers and grass.
All prints are for sale and the Collectorplan scheme allows you to buy unique pieces of contemporary art and craft over a period of 12 months interest free.
