Echoes of the past haunt an extraordinary exhibition at Narberth’s Oriel Q Gallery.
In the 16th and 17th centuries the “Cabinet of Curiosities” was a display of natural and cultural objects arranged by wealthy noblemen to impress and amuse their friends. This is a contemporary collection forming the artwork of mixed media artist Pauline Le Britton. It is on view until June 24.
Prepare, as you view this unique show, to be entertained, intrigued, and sometimes shocked, at her assemblage of pieces, mostly in bronze, inspired by the haunting margins of our known world.
Other artists sharing this alternatively delightful, but occasionally disturbing theme, include Lindy Dennis with her totem pole made of elements from Pembrokeshire.
Tim Williams creates, with his small cast figures, a fascinating diorama in the Gallery window.
To top this bouquet of the unusual, film maker Louis O'Hara will be screening a set of six short films in the gallery about living in South Wales. See the website for timings.
The Gallery at 11, Market Street, Narberth SA67 7HX, is open Wednesdays to Saturdays from 10am to 4pm. Call 01834 218894.
