Today I visited the Castle Park Art Gallery for the opening of my fellow students exhibition of work. A really lovely Art space and an excellent exhibition- well worth visiting.

Meriem Alami // Diaspora
This space came into being as a visual documentation of existing in Diaspora and its daily challenges to construct a sense of the constant growing identity in the gap ”in-between” the original homeland and the new home, a transitional period that welcomes reconciliations of cultural differences which merge together in what is called ”The Third Space”, a space where there is a stronger cultural liaison with home of origin while growing an appreciation, respect and love for the new home and its culture, in that case beautiful North Wales.
Sarah Morley Force of Nature
Sarah works out of her studio in Vernon Mill, Stockport, where she also teaches painting and runs workshops. Sarah’s work is inspired by nature, it’s timeless beauty and drama. Sarah paints in an expressive semi abstract style. Colour, texture and energy are all equally important. In this exhibition Sarah presents a large number of her oil and mixed media seascapes, landscapes and abstract water paintings
Celia Rowlands // Pamela Field // Pauline Lever // Drawn from the Weaver
