Arts Council Backing
For Trig Point Series
The Arts Council of Wales provides support for 'professional artists in their early career who are establishing their practice in the professional arena', and for 'creative individuals of exceptional talent, to develop their artistic practice and take forward the art form'.
Confirmation of their decision to back the trig point topgraphical series, sheduled for exhibition in 2015, is welcome news indeed.
Field Testing Plein Air Rig
Portable and flexible, this hands free drawing rig was developed to anticipate the demands of a proposed series of topographical work.
The chief technical advances consist of clips hooks and string. A personal and practical response to the elegant design of the hands free umbrella.
Hanging at Old Town Hall
The Library and Archives panels join their respective counterparts, having been acquired by the Ceredigion Museum for the County Collection.
The work is on display at the recently refurbished Old Town Hall, home to the relocated Town Library and County Archives themselves, Aberystwyth.
Archives, Marine Terrace
Thanks to everyone who voted in the Kyffin Williams Drawing Prize, People's Choice.

Such support does not pass unnoticed,
nor without as personal a thank you as possible. Thank you.
