New Guest Artist - Ceramicist Rosemarie Barr 

Our new Guest Artist is Ceramicist Rosemarie Barr who makes quirky ceramics to make you smile. “I am inspired by ancient pottery in the form of animals or people, and may be used as ritual objects.

KING STREET GALLERY OPEN FROM WEDNESDAY 14 APRIL WITH 'THE SPRING SHOW'

A selection of works by gallery members to welcome you back after lockdown in this Spring Members Exhibition 

14 April - 22 May 2021

We are back open after the lockdown and have a fantastic collection of work for our Members Spring Exhibition. There is an eclectic array of paintings, drawings, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics and photography on show throughout the gallery from all the members. We are also very happy to welcome Helen Elliott back as a member with her well recognised landscapes and her new more pared back work "The subtle power of minimalist paintings has always spoken to me and challenged me to consider what is the essence of a painting in terms of colour, line and design and how I can bring more of this quiet authority into my own work". 

Our new guest artist is Rosemarie Barr who makes quirky ceramics to make you smile. “I am inspired by ancient pottery in the form of animals or people, and may be used as ritual objects. The lady pots are inspired by fertility goddesses and the bird jugs as messengers between this work and the next”.

This show brings so much wonderful contemporary art for you to choose from for that special gift or to add to your own collection perhaps. We look forward to welcoming you back into the gallery where we are keeping on top of all the covid safety measures to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable time when you visit us this spring.

We are, in the first instance, opening 4 days a week between 10.30am and 4pm Wednesdays to Saturdays.

A bit of news from King Street Gallery

One of our members, Mathew Edenbrow, has a piece of ceramic sculpture titled: "Slouch" Polar bear (Ursus maritimus) in the latest edition of Ceramic Review. This is a prestigious ceramics magazine recognising the talent of ceramists all over the world. A great achievement for Mat and we are so proud to have him as a member at King Street Gallery in Carmarthen. There is always a strong selection of his work showing in the gallery.

  

His work draws upon his life long fascination with wild animals and the natural world and seeks to capture everyday moments within an animals life. In 2020 his work was selected as a finalist for The David Shepherd Foundations Wildlife artist of the Year, and Creates Gallery Emerging artist award. His work has in addition been selected for The Royal Society of Marine Artists Annual Exhibition at Mall Galleries, London.

August at King Street Gallery

Elaine Graham In The Spotlight

Each month a different King Street Gallery artist is featured in our Spotlight Room. 

Elaine Graham is proud to present a selection of her recent West Wales landscapes at King Street Gallery’s Spotlight show. Note that suitable distancing was achieved in situ since in most cases she was the only one on site… a lone figure bent over her canvas near the cliff’s edge!

Elaine Graham In The Spotlight runs from 19th August – 31st October

For more information on Elaine’s work please visit: http://www.elaine-graham.co.uk


NEW AUTUMN REOPENING SHOW

19 August – 31 October

A new selection of works by gallery members for the long awaited reopening of the gallery in this Autumn Members Exhibition.

We would like to thank you all for your patience while we have been working to get the gallery Covid safe over the last few weeks and also give the gallery a makeover and freshen up.

A wide variety of disciplines can be seen in this new show for Autumn from fine art painting and ceramics, photography, sculpture, printmaking and jewellery. Do pop in for a visit and find that work of art you have always wanted and haven’t been able to purchase during months of lockdown. You can buy via Collector Plan which is a great way to spread the cost and enable you to own an original painting or piece of sculpture or ceramics.

We look forward to welcoming you all back to the gallery from the 19 August. We are, in the first instance, opening 3 days a week between 11am and 4pm Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
