Charity Art Exhibition and Auction
Artists working in Wales and the borders were invited to donate a piece of work to be shown as part of the fifth annual art exhibition and auction in aid of Welsh children’s rights charity, Tros Gynnal Plant. They work to provide advocacy and support for vulnerable children and young adults at projects across Wales. This eclectic exhibition was shown at three venues: Swansea Museum in September, Aardvark Books and the Norwegian Church, Cardiff Bay in October. Each show opened with a private view then opened to the public. At each exhibition, visitors placed a commission bid or via Tros Gynnal's online catalogue. An exciting live auction was then held at the Norwegian Church on 24 October.

During my recent Helfa Gelf Open Studio event a number of visitors asked if I framed my own work. I was flattered, but I do not possess the time, space or skill. All my most recent paintings have been framed by P G Framers in Wrexham Street here in Mold. Paul the owner is a highly trained craftsman with years of experience. I recently asked for a batch of 14 mounts in 7 different sizes for a series of limited edition prints. I called at the shop at about 10am to place my order then returned home, as I was having lunch I received a call from Paul to tell me that the job was finished and that he had also fitted the prints in their mounts! How fast was that! The prints are now on display in the gallery area of his shop.
