Egni a decade of creativity
Eleri Mills

Eleri Mills : Egni — a decade of creativity Oriel Davies 28th September to 18th December 2019 Eleri Mills is one of Wales’ most important artists, having exhibited as far afield as Chicago, Kyoto, Tokyo, Madrid and New York. Oriel Davies is delighted to present work that spans a decade of creative exploration. Eleri Mills explores the depths, balance and rhythm of her landscape here in Mid Wales. Mills says about her home; “The land has always been there in my mind, beginning with a childhood helping on the farm. The passing on of the land from one generation to the next represents continuity and instills a deep sense of belonging”. This exhibition has been curated by Philip Hughes, Director of Ruthin Craft Centre, and is the first major exhibition of her work in Mid Wales for 30 years. more >

Process: Student Work from NPTC
Group Exhibition

Within the field of the Art & Design, this is defined as a series of creative actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end, whatever the chosen discipline; Fine Art, 3D Design, Fashion, Textiles, Photography, Graphics etc. The creative process itself has many benefits. As well as developing the ability to externally manipulate materials, there is also an internal creative process taking place developing researching, thinking and analytical skills. These areas of skills development underpin many of the activities learners engage in while studying at Newtown College in the Art & Design Department. more >
