Unfortunately, you’re pieces weren’t chosen for this exhibition.
We received a very high number of applications and due to the lack of space, we cannot exhibit all the work submitted.
Many thanks to you and we hope to see you at the opening of the exhibition on 6th of April at 7pm

I decided to apply for the Alternative Landscape Exhibition at CARN in Caernarfon. Below is my application.
Please find attached my application for the Alternate Landscape exhibition. Below is a short Artist Statement and my Biography for the two pieces of work I am submitting.
Two Abstract Polyscapes created in response to the events at Tryweryn in the 1960’s where the village Capel Celyn was demolished and flooded to create the controversial reservoir Llyn Celyn and provide water to the people of Liverpool.
The amateur film “The Village Condemned to Die – Capel Celyn in the Tryweryn Valley” by Alfred Mawby speaks of the reservoir as “the shroud for the village in its death” and that “Capel Celyn, in death makes a greater contribution to man’s progress than it ever was able to do in life.”
Michelle Wright is currently in her final year of study towards a BA(Hons) Fine Art at Coleg Menai in Bangor North Wales. Photography and Video are core aspects of the artwork she produces. She considers all of her work to be of a humanitarian nature and a reflection of the way she sees the world. However, her work subconsciously considers social and political issues that arise as part of the practice she has developed.
