The bright sun lit interior walls of St Brides are perfect to display a contemporary Welsh art gallery. Whether the artists were born in Wales, now live in Wales or their subject matter is Wales, St Brides exhibits some of the best art that the country has to offer.
We are currently exhibiting works by Shirley Anne Owen who is based in the seaside town of Penarth. For this exhibition, she has drawn on the Pembrokeshire coastal and rural landscape for her subjects, including people who live here. Her ideas develop from ink and charcoal drawings and are freely interpreted in acrylics, oils or mixed media. Her work is characterised by a freedom of expression which gives it a strong sense of vitality and light.
