This winter's events and exhibitions

Margaret and the Tapeworm

Friday 7th December - 7.30pm

A play by Triongl

An uninvited guest lurking at the office buffet brings surprising consequences for love-lorn Margaret and determinedly festive Amber. As this trio collides we discover that, person or parasite, no-one wants to be alone at Christmas.

Triongl is a company of 3 women dedicated to producing original theatre with humour and social relevance. Triongl are associate artists on the Peilot Programme at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff.

Tickets: £10 (£8 Concessions)

Ruth Jên Evans

Until 12th January 2019

An exhibition of work from the ‘Welsh Ladies’ series by local artist Ruth Jên. ‘Ar Dymor Gaeaf’ will include original pieces, limited edition prints, and lino cuts. The work has been inspired by colloquial sayings, traditions, culture, and the nuances within the Welsh language.

Helen Elliott

Until 12th January 2019

Although Helen Elliott was obsessed by painting from an early age, she’d been asked to leave the art class at school and told she couldn’t draw. This lack of art education let Helen explore her imagination in depth and experiment to develop a way of painting that is unique and memorable.

Malcolm Ryan

Until 26th January 2019

A selection of paintings spanning forty years from the 1970s until the present, drawn from Malcolm Ryan’s wide subject matter. The paintings are a kind of night journey, we are escorted to view scenes of domestic intimacy, to travel through night landscapes and to view the busy street scenes of great cities. We are made to become aware, to view our everyday lives imbued with the poetry of the painter’s eye.

Little Big Art

From 8th December 2018 Until 26th January 2019

The best things start with the smallest brick… and then get bigger, literally. Little Big Art have created galleries in exhibition centres, castles and UNESCO World Heritage sites, and even had an exhibition attended by Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen – the billionaire owner of The Lego Group. Little Big Art take the wonderful world of play and supersize it, reigniting the childish euphoria of cracking open that new toy on Christmas Day.

Then & Now : 80 Years of CASW
