We had a very cultural day out to Cardiff a couple of days ago. Having a picnic lunch in the tulip filled gardens in front of the National Museum of Wales was bliss in the sunshine . . . and the museum itself with the current exhibitions (Julian Stairs and Pop Art) never ceases to amaze me with the fantastic collection it has.
The Diffusion Festival is also filling the city this month and we visited the Tram Shed to see two photography exhibitions in a fascinating venue – The Valleys Re-Presented by various artists and High Rise by Peter Bobby. I have to say I was as taken with the venue as I was with the work. One of my daughter’s lecturers had work in this show which was a good way for us to select what venue to visit amongst all that is going on in the festival.
Last but not least we visited the Chapter Arts Centre. Again, my daughter had been studying one of the artists (Maurizio Anzeri) who is exhibiting there and so it was any easy choice amongst all the galleries to choose from.
