The Machynlleth Centre for Alternative Technology recently hosted an exhibition of environmentally friendly art created in a series of local workshops.

Led by community art group Celf-Able, the DaearGelf/EarthArt project was an exploration of sustainable living.

The project ran from February to July across Montgomeryshire and was funded by Arts Council Wales.

The workshops invited participants to use art as a way to express how they felt sustainable living in Montgomeryshire could be accomplished, and how the issues surrounding the topic made them feel.

The group worked with Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust, Siawns Teg, Centre for Alternative Technology, Montgomeryshire Youth Theatre and artist Jo Munton.

Project co-ordinator Amanda Wells said: “The project looks at the links between climate justice and social justice, using art as a way of exploring and communicating thoughts and feelings on the issues.

“We have been making all kinds of art, including animation, land art, shadow puppets, and lots more.

“It was a joy to sharing the work with visitors to the Centre for Alternative Technology over the last month.”

The exhibition was featured in the Straw Bale Room and on the screen in the café.

Celf-Able is notable as it is run by disabled artists residing in Montgomeryshire, with the group being open to all ages and abilities, disabled and non-disabled, aiming to provide opportunities for people to do art, share and learn from each other.

Other members of the group have also been busy on other projects such as painting, print work, collage, ceramics and digital art.

A selection of work is on display at Newtown library until the end of July.
