A Path In Peace Art Trail 2019-
Through his artwork, Glyn takes us by the hand and gently guides us along the quiet paths to the timeless peace of the churches and holy places of the Vale of Glamorgan. He takes us back to the yesterdays of our forefathers so that we may, if we wish, create a better tomorrow for our children. A tomorrow of togetherness and shared joy whatever your belief.
This is a skilful ,inspirational exhibition that truly deserves a wide audience throughout Wales, so that we may, as the poet Waldo Williams says in his poem Cofio (Remembrance),
“…..bring to mind the things that are forgotten
Now scattered in the dust of ages past.”
Come and experience for yourself the journey and work of one of the sons of the Vale of Glamorgan, the talented yet humble artist, Glyn Pooley.
Gwyn Hughes Jones.
It is interesting to observe how many cultures and ideologies have contributed to these ancient sacred sites. From Pre-historic communities, to the Celts, Romans, Middle Eastern and European Christian Saints, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, Normans, Socialists and Capitalists, amongst others, all have left their legacy. The condition and content of the sites and their structures today brings forth a pertinent question; Are they but a reflection of our own and previous generation’s connection to the nature of peace?
For further insights from visitors who attended one of the exhibitions, please connect with their reviews below.
