EXHIBITIONS DURING 2013
John Cooper Sue Morgan Carys Roberts
John Cooper is considered to be a member of that distinct group of Welsh painters from the 1950s that have become known as the "Naive Realists" who made the South Wales valleys their subject. In his current work he continues to explore this theme.
Sue Morgan was born in Newport, Monmouthshire and studied graphic design. For fifteen years she was a prize-winning freelance illustrator/writer of children's stories. Her semi-naive painting style evolved over time and her themes are simple seascapes and landscapes, children and animals.
Carys Roberts was born in Swansea, trained at Birmingham College of Art then entered teaching. She retired as Head of Art at Bishop Gore School, Swansea in 2009. Her main interest is in printmaking and she takes inspiration from the environment of Swansea and Gower. .
Robert Harrison and Sara Philpott
Robert Harrison was born in Neath in 1943. He studied at the West of England College of Art, Bristol, where he achieved a degree in Art and Design. He has exhibited his landscape and still-life paintings at the Attic Gallery since the 1980s.
Sara Philpott is a painter and print-maker who studied at Central School of Art and Design, London, graduating in 1984. She exhibited in London for several years before moving to Wales where she has successfully exhibited her work and undertaken collaborations with Old Stile Press She has a distinctive vision and palette and refuses to be typecast.
Aneurin and Meirion Jones
Aneurin Jones was born a farmer's son and studied Fine Art at Swansea College of Art from 1950 to 1955. He has exhibited across Wales, in London and the USA with numerous one and two-man shows and has long been acclaimed for his depiction of Welsh rural life.
Jonathan Taylor was born in the West Midlands in 1962. He studied in Worcester and Leeds between 1982 and 1987 and became a professional painter in 1988. He has been featured on television, and by art magazines. In 2010 his paintings won the Rowland Hilder Award and the Matt Bruce Memorial Award at the R.I. exhibition in London. He has long been inspired by the Gower landscape and he frequently visits to draw and paint.
Summer Group Show
This is once again a chance for each of the artists we represent to show their latest work. The exhibition continues throughout the Summer and will change as new work is submitted.
Aled Prichard Jones and Maurice Sheppard
Aled Prichard Jones was born in Bangor, studied Architecture at Bath University and worked as an architect until 2000. He now lives in Anglesey having taken up painting in pastel full time. He exhibits regularly in galleries across Wales.
Maurice Sheppard is a significant British landscape painter. He was born in Pembrokeshire, studied at the Royal College of Art and became the first Welsh President of the Royal Watercolour Society. He currently works in oil, making meticulous paintings of the Welsh landscape.
George Little was born in 1927 in Danygraig, Swansea and studied at Swansea College of Art and Ruskin School of Drawing at Oxford University. He had a long art teaching career before his retirement in 1994. Since then he has been able to concentrate solely on his own work. He has exhibited widely throughout Britain in solo, joint and mixed shows.
His paintings and drawings are often based on the industrial environment in which he grew up and his later work has reflected the decline and eventual decay of those former areas of heavy industry.
