Green Dark

After an exciting opening evening on Wednesday 28th July, we are so happy to have Zillah Bowes’ wonderful exhibition open at Fanny Street until Saturday 14th August.

You may recognise some of Zillah’s images from Many Voices, One Nation in 2019, produced in partnership with the Senedd. Green Dark presents a more in depth look at the hill farming community in Radnorshire, Mid Wales, examining both plant and human life, and the transition between them in the discomfort of an uncertain climate future.

Gallery opening hours are Wednesday – Saturday, 12-5pm. No need to book a ticket, but we will be asking for a contact name and number upon your arrival.

More Than a Number - Ffotoview and Workshops

We were thrilled to launch More Than a Number – part of our Photography and Africa project – at a symposium two weeks ago.

More Than a Number looks to explore our thinking of an Africa caught between modernity and tradition, and how different cultures can produce meaning through images. We’ll be holding online artist workshops on the 16th, 17th and 18th of July (book here for your tickets) but in the meantime, explore the work of the 12 artists involved below.

Tea & Cake Tuesdays

Tea and cake Tuesdays are back! A popular monthly event at our previous space in Penarth, we are delighted to be welcoming you once again to our Fanny Street gallery. Pop in on Tuesday 3rd August between 11am and 1pm for a cuppa, cake and a chat, whilst taking in the exhibition.

Book of the Month

This month’s featured book is Scaffold to the Moon, by Huw Alden Davies!

Published late last year with Davies’ own photobook company iPidgeon, Scaffold to the Moon is a tale of life, hope, dreams and aspiration, and an ode to those that shape and inspire us. Exploring the lines of photographic and illustrative storytelling, Huw Alden Davies’ monograph / photobook is a dramatic and often humorous study of the artist’s father, a bi-product of a generation, and his devoted mother, central characters to his beloved Tumble.
