Hibernators4th June 2022 - 2nd July 2022
Location: The Art Shop, No. 8, Cross Street, Abergavenny. Monmouthshire. NP7 5EH
The Hibernation project is inspired by the time when the world when to sleep. The COVID pandemic starved artists of the opportunity to show their work, and denied the public opportunities to visit galleries. The exhibition aims to satisfy both these needs, firstly by bringing together and supporting a cohort of contemporary artists from Abergavenny and its rural hinterland, and then curating an exhibition of their work made during this period or inspired by it. This includes Photography, Painting, Sculpture, Drawing, Video, Ceramics and mixed media from selected artists Catherine Baker, Toril Brancher, David Collyer, Penny Hallas, Lauren Heckler, Ben Jones, Clare Parry-Jones, David Morgan-Davies, Allison Neal, Rachel Tudor Best, Daniel Williams, Jessica Woodrow and Catherine Wynne-Paton.
The Hibernation project could not have happened without the support of the Welsh Arts Council.
