The Cambrian News reported “Ar Lan y Môr / At the Edge of the Sea opens on Saturday and includes painting, photographs, sculpture, textiles, film and ceramics.

In Gallery 1 there will be flying seagulls, empty beaches, abstract images and fleeting glimpses of children on windswept beaches. This group exhibition will include textiles, ceramics, paintings, photographs sculpture and films.

Artists have always been intrigued by the sea and those featured in this exhibition are no exception. The second show this year to include artists who responded to the art centre’s open call, this mixed media show displays work by makers from all over Wales.

“Each day I walk the beach searching for what is new. More often than not my walk takes me past the same accumulations of tangled seaweed, some days strewn across stones, clutching at shells and assorted debris, other days disported gracefully across sands as smooth as silk. Every day the temper of the tide is drawn anew,” said artist Helen Pugh, who will exhibit alongside Tim Pugh, Karen Pearce, Paul Butler and others.

Also at Aberystwyth Arts Centre, the Café Gallery hosts In the Mind’s Eye by Suzie Larke, and the Lower Foyer Wall, Gwneud yr Anweladwy’n Weladwy / Making the Invisible Visible by Thomas Evans.

The photography exhibitions both explore mental health issues and continue until 15 July.

Elin Jones AM will open the exhibitions on Saturday evening, and at 4.15pm in the performance studio, there will be a discussion with Suzie Larke and Thomas Evans about their work” here.
