History Section: The Picturemakers' First Exhibition - a little bit of history

'Cynefin'

King Street Gallery, Carmarthen

3—31 September 2007

This exhibition, our first as a group, grew out of the collective urge to create. Most of all, it continues to demonstrate how we respond to that which surrounds us; to what we have found in our own, individual and personal backyards, found in our cynefin, in that special place and of that special people, that we know and love.

(Read a fine definition of cynefin on Shelley Upton's page ).

The Picturemakers thank the following for their generous support for 'Cynefin':

Exhibition Preview of 'Cynefin'

On Thurs 30 August we held a preview of the 'Cynefin' exhibition at the Conrah Hotel, Aberystwyth, in aid of charity (Mentro Lluest, Aberystwyth).

Donation to Mentro Lluest

At the successful Cynefin preview at the Conrah Hotel, Aberystwyth on 30 Sept 2007, almost £3200 was raised for the charitable organisation Mentro Lluest, from the sale of paintings donated by The Picturemakers artists, and by our local patrons. This sum was presented to David Greeney, Chairman of the Mentro Trustees, on 8 Dec 2007 by The Picturemakers President Prof Alistair Crawford and other members of the group. You can see more in our Press Cuttings Scrapbook.

Congratulations to Iwan Dafis who was a finallist in the Boundary Gallery Prize for Figurative Art 2008 and showed at their gallery in London. For more info visit Artnet or Boundary Gallery. He has also won a Geoffrey Crawshay Memorial Travelling Fellowship to travel to Provence to paint.

 

Exhibition "Cwm", Morlan Centre, Aberystwyth, 2009.
