Our next pop-up exhibition is the work of Kate Kelly and provides a personal perspective of life in Pembrokeshire, particularly on the northern coastline.

The exhibition celebrates where the sea meets the land. Kate loves the challenge of capturing the ever-changing weather conditions such as dramatic cloud formations or skies streaked with light reflected in wet sand – her aim is to invite others to see the land / seascapes afresh and seek their own vision of our beautiful county.

Initially she specialised in printed textile design and completed a BA Hons. Textile & Fashion degree in Liverpool (1990). Having spent some time working in London, Kate now lives a very rural existence on a smallholding. She has spent four years working in a local primary school using her creative skills to help children explore their feelings, emotional responses and to promote a sense of well-being.

In between feeding the pigs and chickens, lambing and weeding the veg patch, she walks the coastal paths of this stunning part of Wales and ponders scenes to paint. Her two dogs keep Kate company and ensure trips out in all weathers.

The exhibition will be open from August 12th - September 6th.

When I start a series of works I like to set myself a challenge - This helps keep my work innovative and fresh. I believe as an artist I should take risks and work with the unexpected.

I adore applying oil paint in various ways. In this exhibition you will be able to see thick strokes of a palette knife and delicate refined brush marks. Considering the application of media allows me to add emotion, movement and atmosphere to my land and seascapes.’

A sense of place is important to me and the compositions include many local landmarks. Strumble Head lighthouse perched on it’s jewel of land or Carn Llidi, imposing itself on the St David’s peninsula, keeping watch over the fields and golden sands below.
