Local Artist Phil Clark brings latest exhibition to Theatr Brycheiniog

Local artist Phil Clark brings his latest exhibition to Theatr Brycheiniog in Brecon, as the popular arts venue begins to reopen fully to the public following the pandemic.

At The Waters Edge is an exhibition of original prints by Phil Clark which will be at Theatr Brycheiniog in Brecon throughout November, December and into January 2022.

Primarily a theatre director, Phil has always worked as a Visual Artist alongside his theatre work. In 2016 he was the winner of the inaugural Saatchi Open Studio Award, a finalist in the International Derwent Drawing Prize exhibiting at The Mall Galleries in London in 2018 and a finalist in the 2021 Print International Exhibition. He has exhibited work for the last 40 years and has had solo exhibitions in Brecon, Cardiff, the Czech Republic and the National Botanical Garden of Wales. In 1998 Phil’s work was chosen by the European and World Summit Meeting in Cardiff to be exhibited in the rooms occupied by Nelson Mandela. He has exhibited at the Riverside Gallery, Chepstow and St David’s Hall, Cardiff Summer and Christmas exhibitions. He was also a finalist in the National Laing Art Competition. Recently Phil has exhibited at The Print Shed, Hereford and the Haymakers Gallery in Hay on Wye. He also participated in the National Print Exchange and has been a regular participant in hArt Festival in Hereford over a number of years. Phil has also had solo exhibitions at The Senedd Cymru/Welsh Parliament Building in Cardiff Bay and FOUND Gallery in Brecon.

Phil said “Painting has always been a part of my life. There is not a day passes that I don’t think about, contemplate or actually paint. To paint, for me, is to be able to visually respond to the world. Through colour, shape, line, texture and form I continuously investigate the world and allow myself a dialogue with nature”.

David Wilson, Director at Theatr Brycheiniog added “I am delighted that we can finally re-open our gallery space and what better than with such a beautiful and evocative exhibition from local artist Phil Clark. This is another step towards being able to fully open up our building to the public once again. Our roof space gallery offers the perfect place to escape to and we invite everyone to view Phil's work at their leisure, free of charge.”

Phil will be hosting a private viewing at 6pm on Friday 3rd December for an hour and will also be available to meet, answer questions or discuss his work during gallery opening times on Saturday 4th December. Also

available on the Saturday will be other pieces from Phil’s studio available at a specially reduced rate. The perfect opportunity to do some Christmas shopping, buy local and support a local artist!
