These Wales-based artists, a mix of established and emerging talent, have in common ‘Rhôd’, an annual exhibition in rural west Wales that aims to site contemporary art in a rural landscape creating a dialogue between urban artists and artists who work in rural settings.
Following Reveal Somerset’s presentation at the Rhôd symposium, held at Chapter, Cardiff in July 2011 in which rural/ urban similarities were discussed, this exhibition seeks to further extend that dialogue into a conversation with The Brewhouse Gallery and it’s visitors.
The artists have been chosen for their diverse mixture of media, which ranges from performance (Good Cop/Bad Cop), film (Anthony Shapland), sculptural objects (Sam Aldridge, Kathryn Campbell Dodd) and interventions (Jason Pinder, David Shepherd).
This exhibition is supported by Reveal Somerset.
