This exhibition of paintings, drawings and prints is inspired by a collection of antique jugs from Gwenllian Ashley. Gwenllian was an avid collector of all sorts of interesting objects and was passionate about the beauty as well as the history of the things she gathered.
This exhibition of jug images, at the Quilt Centre Lampeter, was the idea of Jen Jones. Gwenllian worked with Jen on many occasions and Jen wanted to commemorate that working partnership, so created a display of special quilts in Gwenllian’s memory. I was asked to display my prints in the gallery at the same time. Print Exhibition: 17th May to 16th July 2022
The Edith Eleanor: produced as a combined lithograph and linocut with hand colouring, this print depicts the last boat to have ever been built in Aberystwyth in 1881 – the 81 foot long three masted schooner The Edith Eleanor. Captained by William Thomas Jones, this ship travelled as far south to the Mediterranean and as far west as the coast of Labrador – trading Welsh slate and timber for fish and salt. The ship finally met its end in the Bristol Channel in 1921.
