Cuban-born artist Raul will be displaying his paintings at the new Art at Waunifor exhibition, while Heather’s photography will be on show at the same event.

Art at Waunifor opens in August for its 14th year, featuring an eclectic range of artwork by more than 30 Welsh artists.

There will be a ‘real life’ art exhibition in the Cedar Hall at the Waunifor Centre, in Maesycrugiau, near Llandysul, on the Carmarthenshire/Ceredigion border. You can visit the ‘live’ show between Saturday 21 and Monday 30 August, 10am-5pm. The artists’ work will also be promoted on the Art at Waunifor website.

Art at Waunifor is funded by the Arts Council of Wales and the National Lottery.

Children’s painting workshops in St Davids

Budding young artists have the chance to take part in one of two children’s painting workshops led by Raul.

The two workshops take place at Oriel y Parc gallery and visitor centre, St Davids, on Wednesday 11 August.

Using his Cuban roots, Raul will bring fun and colour to the sessions to engage the young painters. The children will get the opportunity to produce their own artwork to take home and to take part in a fun group artwork.

You can choose between a morning or afternoon session, and each workshop lasts about 2.5 hours.

To book a place, visit the Oriel y Parc website.
