Lynne Cartlidge, Gareth Parry, Claudia Williams
24 September 2016 - 16 October 2016
This exhibition showcases the work of three artists:
Lynne Cartlidge was born in Wellington, New Zealand in 1964 and moved to the UK when she was three. She has been based in Wales for over 20 years, having gained her degree in Fine Art at Cardiff College of Art. Her beautiful, delicate still-life paintings are deservedly gaining her a loyal and increasing following in both Wales and further afield. This will be Lynne's first exhibition at Oriel Tegfryn.
Gareth Parry was born in Blaenau Ffestiniog in 1951 and attended Manchester School of Art. His increasingly impressive paintings have resulted in hugely successful exhibitions in Cardiff and London. This exhibition of atmospheric and moody paintings of North Wales, suffused with light, show his continuing development as one of Wales' finest landscape painters.
Claudia Williams was born in 1933. Her gift for drawing was evident as a child and at the age of sixteen she attended Chelsea School of Art, where her draughtsmanship was recognised with a scholarship. In 1954 she moved to north Wales and married the artist Gwilym Prichard, Claudia’s paintings and drawings usually reflect the domestic world of children and grandchildren, family gatherings and seaside trips. Her obvious love of the subject matter, allied with a rigorous eye for composition and colour, and the quality of her draughtsmanship combine to produce paintings of great integrity and broad appeal. She has exhibited widely and her work is featured in many important public and private collections.
