From automata and masks, to print and photography, the Big Picture Llanelly House final exhibition brought together a selection of artwork made over the last 18 months by 120 participants from nine local schools, Coleshill Day Centre and Hafan y Coed Care Home.
The exhibition was ceremonially opened by the Chair of trustees, Cambrian Heritage Regeneration Trust, who introduced the project before inviting lead artist Pip Lewis, from spacetocreate to share a few words about the creative journey participants had made over the last 18 months.
Gareth Morgans, Head of Education services for Carmarthenshire County Council, spoke about the quality and diversity of the work as well as the importance of art and creativity in the curriculum, prior to everyone involved being presented with a medal and certificate by the Mayor of Llanelli and other local dignitaries.
More than two hundred people attended the opening, including the participants, their teachers, parents, grandparents, guardians and the artists who had been involved in leading the workshops. The exhibition runs from 8 – 18 June 2016 during normal library opening hours.
