Art in the Mansion ~ David Cowdry
October 6 - October 12
A new exhibition of work by David Cowdry is set to bring the Tywi Valley to life like never before. The paintings by the renowned local artist will go on display in the Mansion for a week from Saturday October the 7th, with a special preview evening on Friday October the 6th from 6.30pm (normal admission prices to the Gardens will not apply during the preview evening).
A mix of landscapes and wildlife, David’s paintings capture the beauty of the area in a way only an artist with a deep love and appreciation of the natural world can.
Having arrived in Wales in 1992 to study wildlife illustration David never returned home to Kent and he now lives , just a stone’s throw from Aberglasney near the beautiful market town of Llandeilo. Speaking ahead of his exhibition, he said: “I always try to capture light & atmosphere or a moment in time and while I often work from photos, sketches or notes sometimes I just from memory. I also paint intuitively.”
It is David’s enviable ability to paint extraordinarily life-like depictions of the countryside and creatures of west Wales that makes him one of Wales’ most collected and highly esteemed artists.
The underwater world is another of David’s passions and his ability to capture this magical world on canvas is another of his talents.
