Ceredigion Art Trail Launch
Friday 15th August welcomed the official launch to this years Art Trail an artist run voluntary effort bringing art and the community together. Opened by Mark Williams MP the evening was well attended with a very impressive raffle with works provided by the artists taking part.
Mark applauded the work that Celf Ceredigion Art had done with event over the past 3 years and welcomed the efforts of the people involved stating that “it was great to have recognition from the town and county council of the importance of art especially in a close community like ours, such a diverse range of work is great to see and a huge credit goes to the community in Ceredigion.”
He also mentioned news regarding the new Mill Street development and that he had been in talks with Tesco bosses to ensure there would be minimal disruption to the gallery and to treat the town and space with the respect it deserves during the development.
Peter Jackman this years co-ordinator then welcomed all the artists and gave thanks to all the work and support volunteers had given to the event.
Chris Cain and Pamela Judge for their sterling work on publicity. Lorraine Polkington booklet design and managed it to print, Andrew Francis for the website, Tim Strang treasurer.
And to the many other volunteers working behind the scenes organising the taster venues, arranging the raffle, and Barbara Matthews for organising the hub at Gas Gallery and artists involved in distributing booklets and information.
To all artists and volunteers involved may we extend a huge hand of gratitude to all your work – may this be a huge benefit to Ceredigion and here’s to next years event may it get bigger and better every year!
