In Two Words…

Posted by Tenby Museum on Apr 19, 2013 News No Comments

Local artist Alan Rees-Baynes (otherwise known as the painting proprietor of Elm Grove Country House, St Florence) is in the process of creating the display what Tenby means to visitors in two words.

Visitors to the museum & gallery were be asked to write their two words on a slip of paper and post them into the top of a plastic bucket and spade, and these were collected by Alan and combined with responses from the local press, social media and key Welsh figures to make a total of around 200 responses.

These responses will then be turned into an art piece to be displayed at the Gallery over the summer period. This interactive art approach has become one of the defining elements of Alan’s approach to art – with similar pieces created for Saundersfoot School, Tactile Bosch in Cardiff and a display at the Oriel Joanna Field Gallery. However, none of these pieces have involved responses from what will be a diverse range of sources.  What this space!

Alan says “one of the submissions will be chosen at random and will get a signed picture relating to their two words, so remember to add your name and address/e-mail if you’d like to be included in the draw”
