Sandy and I headed off to Aberdesach for a short break by the sea to sketch and paint.e experienced all weathers including some calm times and sunshine. We visited a number of interesting places, including Newborough sands on the Isle of Anglesey, Plas Newydd Hall, and we saw the practice fly past for the  Jubilee and a red helicopter that was bound to have been piloted by Prince William.

On our return we called in on the Mostyn Gallery in Llandudno and, amazingly arrived just in time to have a delicious lunch AND, thanks to Barry Morris’s tip off,  hear a talk by the new Director of the Mostyn, Alredo Cramerotti on the current exhibition by Fred Langford Edwards. Alfredo was filled with enthusiasm for the exhibition and the artist, and that was not surprising.The work of Fred Langford Edwards – artist, chemist, photographer – is deeply fascinating and we’ll be going back again to take a longer look at the works before the show ends at the beginning of June. A feast not only for  the eyes but for the brain too! In summary, and taken from his website: “The work of Fred Langford Edwards is a sustained and multilayered consideration of what one might call the ‘discourse of knowledge’. Research has often taken him into fields at some distance to that of fine art, making striking and novel use of collections of artifacts accumulated in the name of particular branches of science, medicine, anthropology and the wider culture at large.”

The exhibition is on until 3rd June. If you can get up that way, it’s a MUST.
