DINAS POWYS ART EXHIBITION BRIMMING WITH TALENT
Dinas Powys Art Group , now in its 25th year, will be holding its annual exhibition at the Parish Hall on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th of June, from 10am till 4pm each day. Feedback last year was extremely positive, with many comments about the high quality of the artwork and the range of subjects. This year there will be some new features to appeal to an even wider audience:
- In addition to a wide variety of original paintings, there will be a selection of artwork painted on the theme of Music
- A variety of framed artwork in a range of styles and media including watercolour, acrylic, oil, mixed media, collage, graphite will be on display and available for purchase.
This year for the first time, we are delighted to welcome a dedicated exhibition of artwork created by Year 5 pupils of Dinas Powys Primary School. Their artwork is on the subject of Rivers. We look forward to being able to provide a platform for these young artists.
There will be a few prizes for children creating the best artwork and demonstrating the greatest effort. The winners will be announced at 3pm on Saturday 29th June at around 3pm.
As well as giving group members a chance to show their work, the exhibition will be raising funds for charity.
Admission to the exhibition is £2 for adults, and children can come in free of charge. Children particularly enjoy getting involved in voting for the “People’s Choice” of favourite painting.

The Foster Care Cooperative announces the opening event of its “See Me” art exhibition at West Wharf Gallery, Cardiff on 5 April 2014 from 12pm featuring the artwork of Looked After Children from around Wales. The launch event is being opened by Karl Davies, Chief Adviser Wales at the BBC Trust. The exhibition and launch event is open to the public, who are invited to read the accompanying narratives explaining the at times moving thoughts and memories behind the impressive and varied array of paintings and collages. The exhibition is much more than just a collection of paintings, it marks a retrospective of experiences and an expression of personal perceptions as related by young people in the care system in Wales. As a collection it represents a heart-warming, refreshing and sometimes raw insight into young minds, who look to the future with the unswerving support of their foster carers and organisations such as the Foster Care Cooperative.
The Foster Care Cooperative exists to support both Looked After Children and foster carers.
There are nearly 6000 children in the care of local authorities in Wales over ⅓ of whom are aged between 10 and 15 years old. Less than 5% live in residential placements, only 5% are placed for adoption while over ¾ of Looked After Children live with foster carers. There has been a slow increase in adoptions but waiting times to move between entry into care and adoption is on average over 2½ years1.
These figures underline the pivotal role of the foster carer – ordinary yet extraordinary people – who offer stability, love and direction for vulnerable and often misunderstood young people of all ages.
The young people, who have contributed to this art exhibition, attended three art workshops in which they were assisted in the process of collecting their thoughts into a series of sketches and doodles and then translating these thoughts into a concept and composition, which they went on to finish as a painting or collage. Many surprised themselves at what they were able to achieve, but as budding artists they definitely have the edge: life experience.
If you would like to view their work, the exhibition is open from 5-19th April at West Wharf Gallery, top floor of Jacob’s Building, Cardiff CF10 5DB. Tel: 07904 514942.
Launch event open to the public with light refreshments and music by Midnight Martini at 12pm, 5 April.
