Unto The Self

Robert Price


23 January to 5 March 2016
Bridge Gallery

Robert Price was the winner of the Ailsa Owen Memorial Prize in the Tabernacle Art Competition in 2015 with his photograph of the Milky Way. In this exhibition he takes on a new subject: the micro-world of minuscule flowers. Each tiny flower is photographed against a coloured background and presented on a huge scale as a clean artistic statement, which belies the extraordinary insight into the natural world that these photographs offer.

Recent Acquisitions

Ruralist Room

These include paintings by Daphne Hurn, Terence Lambert and Louise Young; the CASW 2015 National Eisteddfod Purchase Prize of works by Menna Angharad, Dewi Glyn Jones and Sophie Southgate; and a photograph by Robert Price of Bryn Terfel singing at The Tabernacle.

Romanticism in the Welsh Landscape

19 March to 18 June 2016
Pulpit Room, Owen Owen Gallery, Bridge & Tannery Gallery

A major exhibition of works from public and private collections to explore the seminal role of Wales in the origin and renewal of Romanticism, from the late eighteenth century to the present. Works by contemporary artists are set in the context of the ‘father’ of landscape painting, Richard Wilson of Penegoes, the great artists of the Romantic era and Neo-Romantics such as John Minton, John Piper and Graham Sutherland. Curated by Dr Peter Wakelin.

Steven G. Bonfield

The Language Landscape

16 April to 18 June 2016
Ruralist Room

Interactive paintings and sculptures filled with or covered by writing. Steven’s work fuses contemporary poetics, fine art and design to create objects whose physical characteristics are indivisible from the poem. Each piece is made to be touched as well as seen and read.

Borth – Yma O Hyd

16 April to 4 June 2016
Foyer Gallery

On a shingle bank on the coast of Wales, surrounded by water on three sides, the village of Borth supports a defiantly individualistic, vibrant community. The photography of Bruce Cardwell, beautifully augmented by the insightful wordcraft of poet Elin ap Hywel and the evocative palette of painter Rhodri Evans, has created an intriguing portrait showcasing some of the many facets of this idiosyncratic village in Wales.

Glenn Morris


7 May to 13 August 2016
Sculpture Space

‘Anthropocene’ is a sculptural response, by artist Glenn Morris, to the very real and enormous impact man has on the environment and the future of mankind itself. Three massive figures made of reclaimed materials will occupy the Sculpture Space, two of which have been made for this exhibition.

Jacob Buckland

Line and Colour

11 June to 23 July 2016
Foyer Gallery

This is Jacob Buckland’s first exhibition at MOMA Wales showing paintings especially created for this show. His work reflects personal observations and feelings about a place, focusing on rural Welsh landscape and nature, and has an intriguing ephemeral quality.

Wynne Jenkins

Summer Canvases

25 June to 10 September 2016
Ruralist Room

Through his painting Wynne Jenkins takes the opportunity to transform “everyday” scenes into an art form – the timelessness of Wales’ seascapes and mountains artistically unfold. He prefers the challenge of the palette knife, rather than the brush “to express with precision the emotional response to nature”.
