Open art exhibition 2020

I was proud to have been selected to be part of the Open Art Exhibition 2020 at Cyfarthfa Castle in Merthyr Tydfil. It’s an annual exhibition organised and curated by Chris Parry and the team there. The two paintings selected were “George Bros” and “Mayura”.

After dropping off the paintings ready for display we planned on returning the following week when the exhibition was open. Unfortunately, that week the Covid19 Lockdown restrictions came into place. it seemed that the exhibition was going to be over before it had begun.

The good news is that the exhibition which had been due to end in July has been extended until November.

The two paintings on display as part of the exhibition are ‘Mayura’, a large Art Nouveau inspired composition featuring a peacock.

The second painting is a smaller image of a now demolished building that had stood prominently in the centre of Swansea for over 50 years, the George Brothers warehouse.

Both images are on display at Cyfarthfa Castle until November 1st 2020. Admission fees apply (there’s a lot to see in the castle as well as the art exhibition).

Chris Parry and his team also put together two videos of the exhibition during lockdown for those to be able to view it, but not able to get there.
