PAINTINGS and ceramics inspired by two very different regions come together in the galleries at the Llanwrtyd and District Heritage and Arts Centre as two local artists showcase their talent

throughout September.

A collection of watercolours and acrylic paintings described by the artist Anna-Lisa Coleman as “spiritual, soulful and sensual” and inspired by the haunting beauty of the Irfon Valley while out running in the region, are on display in the upper gallery. The lower gallery, meanwhile, showcases the work of Jonathan Burton with a display of ceramics inspired by the early far-eastern pottery of China, Japan and Korea recreating their strength of form in practical pieces.

Working in stoneware and porcelain, Jonathan has been honing his craft for 15 years and Anna-Lisa, who graduated from Middlesex University and the University of South Wales, has paintings in private collections worldwide. Two very different talents which will appeal to a wide audience.

The heritage centre is open Thursday-Sunday 10am to 4pm with precautions in place to protect visitors and staff.
