WINDSWEPT creates art from donated wood


Ahead of the recent art exhibition WINDSWEPT, our contractors JBBB donated some wood. These were carved into houses by the talented Gayle and Chris at the Workers Gallery, to form a main section of the exhibition. Visitors to the gallery were also able to purchase their own wind turbine and house mini kit to make their own art installation at home.

You can continue to follow the progress of WINDSWEPT on this blog.

Local artists Gayle Rogers and Chris Williams of the Workers Gallery are currently embarking on an artistic journey in response to a changing landscape, inspired by the Pen y Cymoedd Wind Energy Project. Gayle and Chris continue to share their work with us via social media and you can see their work in progress with your own eyes between 10am and 5pm, on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays between 5 and 14 May 2016.

Gayle Rogers, Artist: “The work is beginning to represent a composite landscape that has a ‘commemorative’ dimension yet simultaneously it is about the expectations of the future. It is very exciting to be working on a live project.”
