Breaking out of the Gallery exhibition closes with a party
The Breaking out of the Gallery exhibition asks local artists both professional and amateur to create paintings, collages and mixed media images on large boards which are mounted around the streets of Pembrokeshire’s county town for the summer months.
All of the images have now been brought together for a final exhibition at 8 Spring Gardens.
A total of 70 works from 50 artists were hung around Haverfordwest for this, the exhibition’s third year, based around the theme of Brighter Futures “It is really exciting to have exhibited work from so many artists this year,” said Arthur Brooker, who founded the project. “We have had a great reception from the public who seem to have really enjoyed it and business owners as well. Special thanks to the artists and business owners for making it all possible, and all the other people who have helped along the way,” he added. “There was also participation from pupils at Redhill School, who painted 10 small paintings for the exhibition, with help from their teacher Owen Hart. It was nice to include some younger artists from Pembrokeshire in this year’s exhibition,” said Arthur. “We are looking forward to running future projects.”
The Breaking out of the Gallery exhibition can be viewed at 8 Spring Gardens until Friday, September 21.
The project will celebrate the end of its third year with a party at Spring Gardens on Friday, September 21 from 6pm until late.
