If you have been walking through the grounds opposite Newtown's art gallery, you may have noticed some mysterious shapes appearing in the grass.

The large-scale drawing, named Landscape Lines, has been created outside the Oriel Davies Gallery to encourage people to meet and play outside and enjoy nature.

Oriel Davies’ creative producer Kate Morgan-Clare said: “There’s going to be such a buzz in our outdoor spaces."

The gallery has been working with young people from north Powys, artist Erin Hughes, Open Newtown and Andrew Evans Landscapes to create the land art which depicts a sun within a landscape.

It is a temporary artwork which means people have only around a month to enjoy it before the grass is mowed.

Landscape Lines is the first in a series of events to be held in the town as part of the Open Events Project, led by Open Newtown and Oriel Davies Galley, which will be officially launched soon.

Artist Erin has worked with the gallery to complete the design, incorporating the young people’s ideas and elements of her own practice.

As well as work by Erin, the gallery is currently showing The House of Cards by Chardin, a masterpiece on loan from the National Gallery together with contemporary work by Charlie Cook and a community art work inspired by Alyn Smith’s designs ‘Building a Future’. A sound piece by Hefin Jones is also tucked in the foliage outside the main building.
