Last Friday (3 August) saw the official opening of the new exhibition at Tenby Museum and Art Gallery. Movement and Cycles in Nature is an exhibition of paintings by renowned artist Wendy Yeo.

Wendy is a Hong Kong born artist and graduate of the Slade School of Fine Art, University of London. She has won many prizes and a Traveling Scholarship to Italy and Paris and she attended the Atelier 17 in Paris at S.W. Hayter’s etching studio. She has had solo shows all over the world and Tenby is very fortunate to have her work on show in the gallery. She paints in watercolour and acrylic on canvas and is an elected member of the Royal Watercolour Society of Wales.

The exhibition was officially opened by artist Andrea Kelland, also a member of the RWSW. Andrea said, “I have known Wendy for more than 12 years and I admire her use of watercolour tremendously and I have not seen the acrylics before and this is an extra special pleasure for me. Wendy’s work brings the East and West together, imbuing stunning Chinese brushwork with our Western sensibilities. Her work is executed with immense skill, with a creative energy of sweeping lines and delicate finer detail. There is a spirituality about the work that creates a calm serenity and beauty. The title of the exhibition is perfect, the works showing the movement of nature in water and the cycles of life. It is a wonderful exhibition.”

This sales exhibition runs until Saturday 8 September.
