"longitude" - first 4 diptychs

Evening everyone,

Now that "longitude" has been open for a week, we'd like to show you the first 4 diptychs included in the exhibition curated by Nóra Barabás, with links to the artists' pages so you can see more of their work.

First off is the diptych featuring in the poster, with images by Yulia Kazban and Eli Geller; the following 3 diptychs are arranged in the order of the photographs on our gallery walls.

We'd also like to let you know that we've joined a campaign called "Standing Up 4 Sitting Down", which encourages shop owners and venues to make their facilities available to people who would like to have a rest and a sit down, letting everyone know that they're welcome to come in and take a seat, which will hopefully make town centres more friendly places, and easier to visit, especially for elderly people or people with health problems. We think it's a great idea!

"longitude" opening and project updates

Morning everyone,

"longitude", a group exhibition curated for us by Nóra Barabás, opened last Friday and we'd like to share some photographs from the opening of the exhibition. You can find links to the artists' work and read more about the show in English and Welsh on our website. The show will run until the 16th of December and this time round we're also open on Mondays! 

We'd also like to let you know that, while this exhibition is our last one this year, we'll be bringing "summer passage" by French photographer Stéphane Vendran to Brynmawr's Market Hall Cinema (the oldest cinema in Wales!) after our New Year's break. We created "summer passage" for New Tredegar's White Rose Information and Resource Centre last year and we're happy that Stéphane's analogue photographs from his summer travel through Central and Eastern Europe to the Black Sea will brighten up the winter again, this time in Brynmawr! 

Last but not least, all the photos that Dafydd took during "1871" are now ready to be handed to their owners, so if you've sat for a portrait, just pop in and pick it up from 76m2!
