This exhibition was to celebrate International Women's Day with artist Bronte Woodruff's 'Lines of Communication' series and Angie Hughes beautiful framed textiles in the style of Gustav Klimt. Photographer Muriel Gallan's series of images 'Breaking Glass' offered an insight into the role of women in farming. South Wales sculptor, Sue Roberts exhibited some of her powerful bronze and iron female busts whilst the eclectic ceramic vessels, wall pieces and sculpture in porcelain, stoneware and mixed media by Elaine Bolt gave further dimension to the show.

As part of Brecon Women's Festival the exhibition opened with an evening talk by Dr Sarah Ward Clavier entitled 'Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Post-Mistresses, Post-Wenches and Other Seventeenth-Century Women of the Post.’ Sarah shared her research on post-women in the 17th century as their job was the only crown-approved paid employment for women in this period!
