New art exhibition opens at museum
THE private view for the new art exhibition, 'Coastal Spaces' by Victoria Reynolds, took place at Tenby Museum and Art Gallery on Friday. There was no formal opener to the exhibition, but the artist, introduced by honorary curator Mike Brew, gave a brief speech in which she thanked the museum for the opportunity. Although she lives in Ross-on-Wye, she indicated that this area of Wales was very close to her heart and her love for the area is easy to see in the 55 works she has on display. In her artist's statement, Victoria relates her "fascination with the relationship between the sea and the land, resulting from my experience of the wild and untamed beauty of the Pembrokeshire coastline... Each picture is a journey, an experience creating a reality which has a physical and spiritual significance for me." The exhibition, which is a sales exhibition, gives the visitor the opportunity to share in the wonderfully colourful fruits of these journeys. The museum has recently enrolled in the Principality Collectorplan Scheme which gives purchasers the chance to pay for artworks over a period of time through instalments. For further information on this scheme, please visit the museum. Victoria Reynolds's exhibition runs until March 16 and then can be seen at St. David's Cathedral Cloister Gallery from March 19. The museum is open Monday to Saturday, 10 am - 5 pm (last admission 4.30 pm).
