Then open weekends until 31st March.
2 new paintings on show!
Books will be on sale, and Tom will be there on the 23rd to sign copies.

These beautiful, intricate oil paintings by East Midlands based artist Tom Bell
are from his first children’s book ‘Where the Lost Things Go’,
published by Award Publications, Welbeck.
The book tells the magical story of six characters as they embark on an adventure together after becoming lost in the washing machine. Tom’s illustrations capture this story wonderfully, bringing each character to life.
Also on display will be Tom’s gritty cityscape oil paintings which have never been exhibited before.

Toril Brancher – Face to Face in Abergavenny

4 Colour Images: 130cm x 108 cm mounted on dibond and framed.

Face to Face is a series of photographic images, made collaboratively between artist and subjects, the young people in Abergavenny. Over a period of two years the artist approached young people in town, inviting them to consider the way in which they are perceived. Following careful discussions, location and pose were chosen before the photographic moments were recorded using a long hand held shutter release and a medium format camera.

“On my walks I have met some fabulously fun and pleasant individuals, I very much want the series to reflect that; to be a celebration of the young people in this town.’  Artist, Toril Brancher

Toril Brancher lives and works in Abergavenny. This project was funded by Arts Alive

Heads ‘n Tales- Angela Bowen / Caryl Roese

 –opening view Sunday 12th Feb 3-6pm

  then for 4 weekends -open fri/sat/sun 10.30-4pm until 11th march


Angela Bowen presents a bold new series of paintings camouflaging self portraiture into her impasto domestic interiors… where wallpaper, fabric, cats and pattern overlap to create a narrative in disguise to be unravelled by the viewer. Full of discreet nods to the paintings of Bonnard, Vuillard and Matisse, these paintings have been made in Abergavenny by Bowen in her studio at the old workhouse buildings.

Caryl Roese creates dynamic sculptures based on the concept and form of hats. Using metal, glass, rope and other unconventional materials to create ‘hats’ that are not meant to be worn yet their scale allows them to be conceived as maquettes/proposals for larger sculptures. Roese has exhibited widely and studied in Cardiff with Bowen where Roese lives and works.
