Art centre to reopen

MID Wales Arts Centre is delighted to be able to welcome visitors again after months of locked doors and empty galleries in a gradual reopening of its collections and arts spaces.

The domestic interior, something we are all too familiar with lately, is one of the themes of a new sculpture exhibition near Newtown.

This time though, you can escape your kitchen to see domestic items transformed into giant sculptures made from wood by ex-Wolverhampton Fine Arts lecturer Rosemary Terry.

‘The Projected Kitchen’ and other works, Rosemary explains, ‘explore the often problematic relationship between nature and humanity’.

From trees that ‘wreak revenge on concrete’ to the ‘nurturing capacity of wood and trees’ she has been drawn repeatedly to creating strange objects from ordinary domestic life and you can see this fascination in her exhibition.

Her pieces can be seen in the MWA Sculpture Hall and in the landscape. Rosemary’s work has exhibited at Wolverhampton Art Gallery and at the Lake Vyrnwy Sculpture Trail group show’ Sensing Sculpture. She also generously loaned some pieces to Newtown Market Hall for their opening.

The exhibition is free and suitable for all ages

MWAC spaces carry the vital official stamp “Barod Amdani/ We’re Good to Go” ensuring a safe reopening with the health and enjoyment of visitors and staff at the forefront of this exciting relaunch.

Thanks to a Sustainability Grant awarded by the Arts Council of Wales and the National Lottery they have been able to ensure the venue has all safety procedures in place to protect the public and staff.
