ORGAN PREVIEW: A solo exhibition ‘Ar Lan y Môr’ featuring paintings by Welsh artist Eloise Govier as part of Wales Week London…

Organ preview: Now this looks rather enticing, a virtual solo exhibition ‘Ar Lan y Môr’ featuring paintings by artist Eloise Govier. We’re told the “exhibition presents new canvases that capture views along the Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion coastal paths by the artist described as the “heir apparent to Sir Kyffin’s legacy””. Now I don’t know about that, I recall my first day as a young art student in North Wales and a painter some may (rightly) argue was far more important in terms of Welsh art saying (or maybe booming would be a better description) to us all on our very first morning something along the lines of “as young Welsh artists your first duty is to avenge the damage done to the reputation done to Welsh Art by Kyffin Williams”. I’ll admit I didn’t know much about Eloise Govier before a post from the Wales Week / London Twitter feed that led to the exploring of her website and the promise of a virtual exhibition that opens on February 20th

I guess the “heir apparent to Sir Kyffin’s legacy” quote is more in terms of a “hey look, exciting painter from Wales” kind of thing, and yes, exciting painter, rather bold forward looking exciting work, Eloise Govier, exciting painter, head to her website and explore some more… (sw)
