Places, Spaces, Traces a specially commissioned body of work for The Romani Cultural & Arts Company for their groundbreaking Gypsy Maker project opened last month in Newport. The Romani Cultural and Arts Company is an initiative that supports the development of innovative works by established and emerging Gypsy, Roma and Traveller artists.
The exhibition also features the work of Dan Turner (his work 'Tan' is featured below) and is supported by Arts Council Wales. The private view was well attended in spite of flooding stopping trains and closing roads.
The exhibition closes at The Riverfront, Kingsway, Newport 14th March before moving on to the Rug Gallery in Cardiff. I will be at the gallery on Monday 23rd March from 1.00-3.00 if you would like to come and say hello and look at the current project I am working on. (Images courtesy of Felix Page and RCAC)
