Richard and Ann Mayou Fund Curatorship
The new Curator appointed to the Museum of Modern Art, Wales in Machynlleth will be Lucinda Middleton. Lucinda has extensive and highly relevant experience as Exhibition Project Manager at the Panacea Museum, Bedford, and as Curator of Fine & Decorative Arts at the Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro. In Bedford she was responsible for setting up a fascinating new museum of historic and newly researched artefacts connected with a local charitable and religious movement, and in Cornwall she worked with local and national artists on setting up new exhibitions and special projects. Lucinda will take up her post in May.
Supported by the Richard and Ann Mayou Fund, the curatorship at MOMA WALES is expected to generate exhibitions, forge new partnerships and mount touring exhibitions. The present Museum Director and Chairman of the Machynlleth Tabernacle Trust, Ruth Lambert says “we look forward to welcoming Lucinda to this exciting new post that Professor Mayou has created for us.”
Following his recent exhibition at MOMA WALES, Gareth Nash kindly donated his work Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Mo to the permanent Collection.

A good Friend of The Tabernacle asked if we would like a handful of old coins to raise money for Phase II of The Tannery. We said ‘Yes please’. The coins turned out to be gold and a coin merchant in London accepted them eagerly in exchange for a cheque for over £4000.
