A rare opportunity to see the work one of Wales' most renowned living artists has gone on display near Newtown.

Dr Mary Lloyd Jones has permitted Mid Wales Arts, Caersws to display some of her significant pieces.

Mid Wales Arts Centre said: "This is a rare opportunity for the people in mid Wales to see a considerable body of her work."

Dr Lloyd Jones' work is inspired by the Welsh landscape and the marks people make on it. She is known for her application of rich, vibrant colour and for her use of unstretched canvas in some works.

“My aim is that my work should reflect my relationship with the land, an awareness of history, and the treasures of our literary and oral traditions," she said.

The new exhibition 'Colour, Form and History in the Welsh Landscape will run throughout August and September from Thursday to Sunday at 10am to 4pm.

Other prominent female Welsh artists taking part in the exhibition include Gill Crozier, Lindsay Davies, Judith Crawford, Alison Lochead, Junko Burton, Gini Wade, Sara Philpott and Diane Rose.

The exhibition coincides with the Art Centre's major centennial exhibition of celebrated artist Stefan Knapp which is on show in the grounds, house and new Artshed.

Entry is free to the public.
