Women And The Valleys In Lockdown
Women And The Valleys in Lockdown has been curated by Karin Mear to mark International Women’s Day 2021. The exhibition comprises twenty five pieces of work by artists who live in or have strong connections with the Cynon Valley and other Welsh Valleys.
“The ethos behind the exhibition was to present a collection of work that demonstrates the talent and creativity of Valleys Women, many of whom are professional artists but also some who have never shown their work and are still discovering their artistic voice.
Making art can be a means of expression, or a distraction from personal difficulties or worries and the Coronavirus Pandemic and Lockdowns have led to an increase in people seeking out new creative pursuits. Some of the works in Women And The Valleys in Lockdown are actually about Lockdown and its effect on the artist while other works were produced out of a need to create.”
