Looking forward to welcoming Jo Ellis, Anthea Stilwell, Jenny Hill-Norton and Sophie Bartlett.
These ladies are going to spend the week of 17 th - 23rd April working both in the workshop area upstairs behind the Gallery and sketching at various locations around St Davids.
At any time, people will be most welcome to call and chat to these artists, A nice informal evening is planned for the Thursday between 6 and 8pm, with all four artists present before a busy Friday preparing and hanging a show that will open on the Saturday and runs until May 28th.
This is the first ever Artists in residence at the Gallery and a wonderful use of the upstairs and hopefully the first of many. Should these ladies or any visitor meeting them, care to look from the rear of the Gallery into our neighbours property they would most likely have seen Augustus John, albeit over 100 years ago, also sketching, perhaps in the shade of a Pear tree in a garden that remained untouched until development in the 1960s
