20 October 2019 - 5 January 2020

North Wales is a land rich in folklore and fairytales. This exhibition was curated with a mix of artists from the region and beyond that came together to tell their own versions of ancient stories from north Wales. Many works were based on the famous Mabinogion tales and with the gallery located on the doorstep to some of these stories gave fuel for the imagination.

The artist line-up included Kirsti Hannah Brown (Pottery), Naomi Bunker (Sculpture), Lucy Copleston (Jewellery), Seven Coupar (Textile/Embroidery), Remy Dean (Author & Printmaker), Ffion Gwyn (Paintings), Karen Hall (Textile/Embroidery), Harry Carmichael (Jewellery), Judith Harrison (Mixed Media), Katy Jones (Paintings), Miriam Jones (Woodwork), Katherine Keatley (Textile/Embroidery), David Lloyd (Mixed Media), Flora McLachlan (Etchings), Jean Napier (Author), Ian Phillips (Printmaker), Iona Pickard (Knitwear), Nerys Rowse (Printmaker), Sue Rundle-Hughes (Paintings and Drawings), Katherine Soutar Caddick (Illustrations), Les Symonds (Woodturner), Su Walls (Painter & Printmaker) and Jane Williams (Pottery). Here are some samples of the work in the show.
