Review: Fforma @ Morlan Centre, Aberystwyth through September 2010

Pam Berridge, 'Swithland', watercolour and agyrotype

Last weekend I attended the opening of the latest exhibition by the Aberystwyth-based artists' group Fforma, at the Morlan Centre, Aberystwyth. A variety of media, particularly photographic media, is in evidence. Nothing unusual in the hanging (entirely excusable due to the opening date being moved forward unexpectedly), just quality images at reasonable prices. Welsh and Celtic landscape and culture are recurring themes.

The opening was quite a jolly little event - we ended up exchanging ghost stories, of all things, over drinks and nibbles. The drinks are long gone, but this foyer exhibition is a good one, and will repay a stop to or from the delights of Aberystwyth's prom. Free, until at least 3 September, probably longer, I hear. Note that the Morlan Centre is closed for much of August - check with their website for when events are on at the centre, to be sure when they are likely to be open. (Hover the mouse over the calendar to check each day's events - if there's something else besides Fforma, Morlan should be open for part of the day.)
