Crafty Creatives And Local Businesses Get Involved In Arts Week 2016!
Cwm a Mynydd Creatives Arts Week 2016 will be kicking off from the 9th of July until the 15th of July for a week-long festival which celebrates the area’s finest creative talent!
Potters, artists, carvers, glass artists and animators will be popping up at a number of locations throughout the valleys during the week, with local businesses keen to show their support by offering their premises as popup galleries including Ystrad Mynach Dentist Phillip Davies, M and R Barbers and St David’s Hospice.
Caerphilly County Borough Council’s Ty Penallta building will also host an exhibition in the atrium, while Parc Penallta will host a local artist painting in the wild.
Further afield, The Living Room in New Tredegar will open its doors for members of the public to view their exhibitions while Argoed Chapel will host open workshops on the 11th July, where the public can see the artists at work while they demonstrate a range of techniques and styles.
As part of the week, a number of the Cwm a Mynydd Creatives will be opening their workshop doors to allow visitors to see the creative magic as it happens.
This event is supported by Cwm a Mynydd, a project funded through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
Cllr Ken James, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Planning and Sustainable Development said: “I am delighted that Arts Week is back for 2016. The week-long event provides members of the public with a fantastic opportunity to view a range of art throughout the borough that has been created using a variety of techniques. I would also like to say thank you to the local businesses who will be hosting a number of pop up displays during Arts Week”.
