Exhibition of young Gwynedd artists’ work

There will be an opportunity for the public to enjoy artwork produced by young people who are part of the Criw Celf scheme during a special exhibition to be held at Storiel, Bangor from Saturday, 10 June until 22 July.

 Criw Celf aims to develop and foster young talent in visual art by offering workshops and masterclasses for more able and talented children and young people.

This exhibition shows off a selection of artwork produced by the young people during master classes with professional artists, where they learnt how to use various media, painting, ceramics, glass work, three dimensional work, fashion design and jewellery.

Members of Criw Celf have also had an insight into how the various media explored is relevant to the art industry and have also been given ideas about possible careers they could follow in the sector.

Gwawr Wyn Roberts, the Gwynedd Arts Development Officer, said: “The Criw Celf scheme offers artists of the future opportunities to work with professional artists in a variety of galleries and inspirational venues. This year the members worked in centres such as Oriel Plas Glyn y Weddw, Storiel, Plas Tan y Bwlch and Penrhyn Castle amongst others.

“The Criw Celf programme was founded by Gwynedd Council in 2008. Since then the scheme has grown significantly with it being delivered across the whole of north Wales as well as in counties in mid and south Wales.”

Criw Celf North Wales is funded by the Arts Council of Wales and all north Wales Local Authorities.
