My Walk this Week – Carmarthen Town

My walk this week features part of Carmarthen, a market town in West Wales. It is an attractive town with a reasonable connection to the arts through galleries and the College of Art (University of Wales Trinity Saint David – now there’s a mouthful!). There is a lot more to the town than I will be showing on this walk and I have posted in the past about walks along the river Towy on a couple of occasions, but the town is not large and has quite an intimate feel about it with various nooks and crannies to be found along the way.

Exhibiting Light 1

We have been to a few galleries lately and in one way or another, light played an important part in each one. Light may always be relevant to art but in these exhibits, the artists had used light as an important and “material” part of the work.

These first shots are from an exhibition called “Difference Engine: Accumulator II”¬†at Oriel Myrddin in Carmarthen. I wasn’t told not to photograph, so I went ahead (on my phone) and feel justified by advertising both the gallery and the artists. More information on the show can be found on the gallery website.

There were other works in the exhibition as well as these and it was well worth the visit but I particularly enjoyed the use of light in these pieces.
