Bedazzled – A Welshman in New York

Ffotogallery presents a series of live events in New Quay and Cardiff as part of Dylan Thomas 100 Festival. You are invited to an evening at the famous White Horse Tavern. Pull up a bar stool and let Dylan Thomas and his American buddies transport you back to his New York in the 1950’s. Our accompanying web project reimagines Dylan’s favourite drinking den and provides a glimpse into the poet’s life in New York. To book your ticket or to explore the world of Dylan Thomas visit www.bedazzledinnewyork.org

GIF_workshop_listing

Artists as Learners was a project run in partnership with engage and the Prince’s Trust Fairbridge Centre. Ffotogallery worked with two emerging artists to develop their socially engaged practice, by placing them with an experienced artist mentor. They worked with a group of young people from the Prince’s Trust over a three day period in July, which culminated in an exhibition and opening at Turner House. More information can be found on the project blog https://summerartsproject.wordpress.com/

With an established reputation as a photographer
of people, Tom Wood’s work has been exhibited
and published extensively worldwide. His landscape
photography however, is relatively unknown. Adopting
an open and expansive approach to the genre of
landscape, Tom Wood – Landscapes, curated by
Mark Durden, presents, for the first time, a selection
of Wood’s extensive and varied pictures made in
response to the West of Ireland, Merseyside and
North Wales.

Tom Wood was born in 1951 in County Mayo in the
west of Ireland. He lived and worked on Merseyside
between 1978 and 2003 before he moved to his
current home in North Wales. Wood has published
numerous books, including Bus Odyssey, People, All
Zones Off Peak and Looking for Love. He has had
solo and group exhibitions worldwide and his work is
part of the collections of major museums.

Tom Wood – Landscapes is a major touring
exhibition produced by MOSTYN in partnership

exhibition is funded by the Arts Council of Wales
Touring Grant and will travel to Aberystwyth Arts
Centre in early 2015.
