Last two days spent building a new website. Recent work and selected archive.
The Trail offers everyone the opportunity to meet artists and makers, to learn firsthand about their work and techniques and to buy direct from the artist.
This year the Trail is extended to run through August and is divided into two regional periods. South region opens 30th July to 14th August and then North region from 13th August to 29th August.
The Square Pegs [art and fine crafts] are situated in the South Region on the edge of Newcastle Emlyn and so the studio doors are open to the public on Saturday 30th July.
Yvette Brown: artist book interventions and works in pewter. Funky, quirky, humorous certainly, but with a sharp observational edge and an intelligent visual sense. Works with Steve to create ingenious automata.
Steve Thompson: designs in wood. Furniture and lighting. Eminently practical objects with the refined aesthetic of modern sculpture . Works with Yvette to create captivating automata.
Carole King: Paintings, printmaking, artist books and blank, hand bound books with unique screen-print designed covers [artworks in themselves, though Carole insists they SHOULD be used!]
Glenn Ibbitson: paintings, printmaking and published books [drawing upon the extraordinary -in the dual sense of that term..]
open daily 30th July to 14th August. See you there….
The final “Art in Action” was held at Waterperry Gardens, Oxfordshire this weekend; July 14th – 17th 2016.
Artist Carole King showed her hand-bound books which sport covers of her own designs; each screen-printed at her studio at Nant, Newcastle Emlyn.
Her work could be found in the Market Place at stand G2. The display changed day by day to reflect the variety of books and associated sheets of gift wrapping available.
More of her books will be on display as part of the Ceredigion Art Trail. Further details can be found here
