Old Tannery Events are put on hold!
13th September 2009
On the left is installation work by Sean Puleston, one of the artists planning to use the Old Tannery space after essential building work has taken place.
MoMA Wales, the owners of the Old Tannery, have finally got planning permission to go ahead with some initial building work on the building. Eventually the plan is to have the whole roof replaced and a connecting bridge built to join the main galleries with the Old Tannery to provide the main public access. For now, as funds allow, it is more likely that only essential building work will be undertaken, leaving the bigger vision to be realised at a later date.
We at Culture Colony - Y Wladfa Newydd and the artists who have shown there so far this year love the building and the space. We hope that this building work will make the space safer and more secure (and connected to a supply of electricity?..... Or is that asking too much?) ready for the exhibitions and events that we already have in the pipeline.
Already we have plans well underway for a group show of installation work from Erin Rickard, Sean Puleston, Ryan Moule and others, a performance piece by Edward Povey, a ceramic sculptures and light installation by Meri Wells, a performance by Carmel George and an exhibition of drawings inspired by the building from Stephen West.
We have a lot to look forward to, watch this space for news as building work begins.
