Margaret's work in St Dogmaels Gallery, near Cardigan

St Dogmaels Gallery near Cardigan is now showing Margaret Sharrow's work.

Featured pieces are 'Nocturne', from the series 'Road Trip (Commute to Aberystwyth)', shown above, and selections from 'Soul Matters v. 1', 2008.

'Soul Matters v. 1' was previously exhibited as a video installation at the Aberystwyth University School of Art in April 2008.

The opening, Saturday 29 November from 6:30 pm, was fairly well attended considering what a frosty evening it was. It was the first time I had seen the new fountain in the back garden, a large rectangular concrete pool reflecting candles, with a large barbeque-cum-bonfire in a sort of silver dish described as 'like an alien spaceship'. Munching olives, I dipped back into the warm of the gallery.

Tricia McParlin has some interesting new work, very dark abstracts of night hills. Among the craft offerings, Greenweeds is a new producer of some sensuous handmade felt book covers in natural wool colours.

The exhibition runs until 28 February 2009.
