An invitation to join Ivor and guests at the exhibition opening event - Oriel Mwldan on Saturday 16th at 7.00pm
Painter, art historian and activist, Ivor Davies - Vice President of the Royal Cambrian Academy - is one of Wales’ most celebrated artists. He has had over 60 one man shows, exhibiting internationally, including Blast to Freeze: Bristish Artists of the Twentieth Century (France and Germany). In 1966 he helped to organize the Destruction in Art Symposium in London and he was an early member of the activist art movement BECA the 1980s. In 2004 his work was included in Art In The 1960s at the Tate Britain. Much of his work is stimulated by Welsh culture and politics and this show is tailor made for Cardigan. Ivor’s family have their roots in Cardigan and we are delighted that this exhibition will be the first to open here in the town’s 900th year.
