Art in the Mansion ~ Andrew Douglas-Forbes and Poliana Bandeira
June 30 - July 6
Andrew Douglas-Forbes is one of Wales’ best known artists. He grew up on Gower and after training in London as a singer he lived and sang professionally in Italy for six years. He has since returned to Wales and settled in Llandeilo. His career as an artist began when he was a teenager and has run alongside his singing career ever since. This summer he will showcase both his talents a stone’s throw away from his studio at Aberglasney.
Recordatus (evoking a memory or reminiscence of something) is his new exhibition opening at Aberglasney on Friday June the 30th. Exhibiting alongside Andrew will be ceramicist Poliana Bandeira.
Poliana Bandeira is a Brazilian born contemporary ceramics artist now living in Wales. She and Douglas-Forbes are great friends and are very excited about collaborating on this exciting new project which will see them both draw their inspiration from Aberglasney’s powerful history as well as the beauty of the Gardens.
A special preview of the exhibition on the evening of June the 30th will be an opportunity not just to see the artists’ work on display for the first time but also to hear Douglas-Forbes perform a solo recital accompanied by world renowned pianist Konstantin Lapshin ~ find out more about the event here.
