In 2015, we were delighted that artist Cameron Morgan was awarded a prestigious Unlimited Commission to produce a collection of new paintings for exhibition in 2016. Morgan and his mentor artist Jason Davis set up their studio and worked steadily through the year towards presenting the work at the renowned 2016 Glasgow International Visual Arts Festival.
The exhibition TV Classics Part 1 was publically and critically acclaimed.
“One of the best shows I have seen”
“Such a wonderful, imaginative and fun idea. The paintings explore both interior design and television through time, which combined are really fascinating”
In July, at the invitation of the arts organisation Celf O Gwmpas the exhibition opened at Celf Centre in Wales.
Cameron attended the exhibition opening then we left him in Wales to enjoy the sights!
The exhibition at Celf o Gwmpas coincided with a poster campaign around the town of Llandrindod Wells, and mid-Wales. A life-sized (and very life-like) cardboard cut-out of artist Cameron Morgan and TV Classics Part 1 advertising trailer were accompanied on their tour by Geraint Edwards. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, they made a number of stops visiting dams in the Elan Valley, Clewedog reservoir and dylife valley, Aberystwyth, the Royal Welsh Showground and the black and white tudor villages of Pembridge and Eardisland.
Also on their tour were Hay Castle and Hay-on-wye, White Castle and Llandrindod Lake, and Stokesay Castle near Craven Arms.
Cameron even met a celebrity along the way! They bumped into Andrew Logan at the Andrew Logan Museum.
The last stop on the tour was the Mid Wales Art Centre, which is home to several galleries, a sculpture trail and collection including works by artist Stefan Knapp.
TV Classics Part 1 will open at the Southbank Centre as part of Unlimited Festival 2016, 6 – 11th September 2016.
Morgan who is also a proficient ceramicist has been working with artist Allan McKeown to produce work for an exhibition at Glasgow’s Tramway for the Unlimited Festivals’ first outing to Scotland, 15 – 25th September 2016.
In June 2016 Cameron Morgan was made a lifetime fellow of the RSA.
