Main Gallery

02 June 2018 until 21 July 2018

Roger Cecil (1942-2015) has been described as one of the great abstract artists of his generation, yet in his lifetime he was little known outside a circle of fellow painters. He turned his back on a Royal College of Art scholarship in the 1960s to return home to Abertillery to paint on his own and without influence. This exhibition will show his extraordinarily beautiful paintings alongside jewellery and 3d work which has never been exhibited.

The exhibition will be opened at 12.30pm on Saturday 2nd June by Peter Wakelin.

Criw Celf Primary and Secondary participants created wet felt forms alongside textile artist Claire Cawte.

Antonello Figlia

Antonello Figlia

Jewellery Showcase

02 June 2018 until 21 July 2018

Geometry, optical illusion, and photography inspire Antonello's work. He is captivated by how shapes interpolate creating intriguing visual effects. These are captured in his Geometry collection, where dots, triangles and other elements are strongly enhanced, complementing the mirror and matte finishes, and the oxidised elements that create drama in the designs.

Antonello is passionate about craft and he's driven to create high quality jewellery. All his designs are handmade at his home- studio in London.
