Four talented local artists will be displaying their works at Cardigan Castle this month as part of the Ceredigion Art Trail.
From August 11 for two weeks, portrait artist Julie Davies, photographer Tez Marsden, painters Rose Sanderson and Peter Rossiter will be exhibiting their work in the castle’s Tower Room.
Julie said: “Whilst I am primarily a figurative/portrait artist using traditional painting techniques, my work is an eclectic mix of whatever takes my fancy. As well as human subjects, I have been producing ‘portraits’ of objects and creatures that are often overlooked, but may be the subject of emotions both positive and negative.”
Tez is a photographer living in North Pembrokeshire. His inspiration comes from exploring the landscape and using his natural talent for seeing pictures and his favourite time to photograph is sunrise waiting for that magical moment when the sun rises above the horizon. He has exhibited in the Ceredigion Art Trail for the past two years with great success as well as with Creative Fusion Arts earlier this year and other small exhibitions.He is an active member of the Newport Collective in Newport Pembrokeshire where his photographs are for sale.
Originally based in Bristol, Rose has recently moved to Wales after spending two years exploring projects in America. Her work is inspired by the natural world; delicate, yet expressive paintings which aim to provoke in an understated way; producing pieces that are empathetic, fresh and intriguing.
Pete specialises in landscapes and abstracts.
“Initially the main influence on my artistic life was the work of my grandfather, Martin Bloch. Although he died when I was young, his paintings and his approach to being an artist, have remained a constant reference point for me,” he said.
