Dwi wedi bod yn gweithio mewn cydweithrediad ag Amgueddfa Sir Gaerfyrddin dros yr haf ar brosiect ymchwil a datblygaid a ariennir gan Y Cyngor Celfyddydau Cymru. Dw’i wedi meddwl am y ffyrdd mae artistiad yn gweithio gyda amgueddfeydd a sut i dechrau corff o waith newydd mewn cydweithrediad gyda’r amgueddfa.

Fe’ch gwahoddir yn gynnes ar gyfer te a chacen ac i glywed am ddatblygiad y prosiect. Hoffwn hefyd glywed beth ydych chi’n hoffi am yr amgueddfa a’i chasgliadau.

I’ve been working in collaboration with Carmarthenshire County Museum over the summer on a research and development project funded by The Arts Council of Wales. I’ve been thinking about the ways in which artists work with museums and how to approach a new body of my own work in collaboration with the museum.

You are warmly invited for tea and cake to hear about the progress of the project. I’d also like to hear what you love about the museum and its collections.

Shelf // Silff

3I am delighted to be working with Carmarthenshire County Museum in Abergwili for a period of research and development funded by the Arts Council of Wales.

The project is called Shelf//Silff and starts at the beginning of June. I will be filming and projecting images in the museum building and on locations in west Wales throughout the summer.

 

Carmarthen Museum Sketchbook Walk

IMG_6742

I’ve been having a lovely time recently, visiting Carmarthenshire Museum in Abergwili to plan for the sketchbook walk I am leading for Oriel Myrddin Gallery on Saturday 1st August 11-1pm.

The event is free and there will be a sketchbook and pencil provided (or you can bring your own materials). We’ll be doing a few drawing exercises to warm up before settling in to focus on an item or area in the museum to draw in more detail. If there’s time, and the weather is conducive we might also take a stroll in the grounds.

The current exhibition at Oriel Myrddin is Richard Slee: Work and Play. Slee is one of Britain’s leading ceramic artists and the pieces in Work and Play focus particularly on his interest in DIY, tools and domestic objects. The use of ceramics and fragile materials in the making of the works renders the objects totally non-functional. In many ways a museum does the same thing – the objects in its care have lost their prior use and meaning, gaining a different function in their role as cultural symbols and signifiers.

Oriel Myrddin is open until 5pm and so there will be time to pop into town and visit the exhibition after the sketchbook walk if you haven’t already seen the show.

Everyone is welcome to join the sketchbook walk – children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. No need to book – just come to the museum for 11am.
