Fishguard Arts Society Summer Exhibition at Tregwynt Mansion

0

The Fishguard Arts Society celebrates 30 years of enhancing and encouraging artistic opportunities and helping to develop creative talents, skills and abilities in all walks of life at its Summer Expo.

The exhibit at Tregwynt Mansion opens August 15 and runs through the end of the month.

The exhibition also includes the society’s annual open competition with a first prize of £750 and an audience prize of £250.

The Fishguard Arts Society was formed in 1992, and in 2002 the enthusiasm of its members led to the creation of sub-committees for Film, Performing Arts, Literature and Visual Arts.

Another stunning success was The Last Invasion Trust which led to the Last Invasion Tapestry, now on permanent display in Fishguard Town Hall.

For the past 30 years, the Fishguard Arts Society has promoted the arts in the community by offering visual art exhibits and a variety of workshops such as life drawing, collage, printmaking, origami and the Japanese shodo script.

During the lockdown, the company continued to offer Zoom portrait sessions and even ran an outdoor exhibit.

Zoom drawing sessions have continued and are attracting artists and models from around the world.

One-hour sessions will resume this fall.

The society also held a month-long exhibition at Picton Castle last May, which included workshops and a day of landscape painting.

The exhibition 30 years, Bringing the arts to all runs from August 15 to 31.

On August 20 there will be a Baroque musical evening at Tregwynt Mansion (SA62 5UU) by The Gwaun Trio; Nia Harries on cello, Lorna Osbon on violin and Matthew Bale on harpsichord.

The concert starts at 7.30am and tickets are £8 at the venue or by emailing fishguardartssociety@yahoo.co.uk.

The evening coincides with the start of the Fishguard and West Wales International Music Festival which runs from Saturday 20 August to Saturday 10 September.

“We would like to welcome people to our Thirty Year Celebration Summer Exhibition at Tregwynt Mansion,” said the company’s Ruth Goodger. “We look forward to our next 30 years.”
