19th August - 13th September 2020
An exhibition of imaginative and thought-provoking small paintings and sculpture by members of the Welsh Group. Produced before and during the Coronavirus lockdown and to specifics in terms of size, Twenty Twenty featured works that reflected and embodied a Welsh art perspective.
The Welsh Group is a long-established group of professional artists who have a significant presence on the Welsh cultural scene and have become an important voice in promoting Welsh visual arts both at home and abroad.
Further information about members of the Welsh Group can be found on the group's website and also in the 2018 publication 'Y Grŵp Cymreig yn 70 / The Welsh Group at 70' by David Moore which is for sale at Found - see here.
The exhibition included work by Jacqueline Alkema, Jennifer Allan, Lynne Bebb, Paul Brewer, Ken Dukes, Wendy Earle, Heather Eastes, Lorna Edmiston, Paul Edwards, Anthony Evans, Chris Griffin, Robert Harding, Dilys Jackson, Jacqueline Jones, Kay Keogh, Angela Kingston, Karin Mear, Shirley Anne Owen, Gustavius Payne, Susan Roberts, Gerda Roper and Jean Walcot. Members of the group from Brecon: Roy Powell, Veronica Gibson and Sue Hiley Harris as well as other local artists: Robert Macdonald, Philippine Sowerby and Thomasin Toohie were also part of this group show.
Also included in the exhibition was a sculpture by Antonia Spowers who was an active member of the Welsh Group from 2007 until, sadly, she died earlier in 2020.
