Contempory Sculpture Exhibition 2006
What a Fabulous Sculpture Exhibition at Parc
Dan y Garn, Dinas Cross!
Sculptor members of the Fishguard Arts Society are currently exhibiting with, another member, Denys Short at his Sculpture park in Dinas Cross.
The trees and rocky outcrops make an interesting backdrop to show the range and beauty of the work.
The Exhibition was opened by Rod Williams, Chair of the Friends of Graham Sutherland, who with obvious enthusiasm spoke about the need to hold exhibitions to promote work in order that the work may be appreciated by wider audience, but also, how much benefit artists, who essentially often work in isolation, can enjoy the coming together with other artists and discussing and seeing their work in a tradition which is age old.
The Exhibition ran until 3rd September.
Entrance was FREE.
