What do the objects you own mean to you?
Over an eight week period, Oriel Myrddin Gallery invites four artists; Carwyn Evans, Peter Finnemore,
Becky Adams and Jools Johnson to occupy the gallery space with special objects that evoke intruiging stories.
Using objects both personal and particular and a spirit of experiment and happen-stance, each of this artist-led series will develop differently. Visitors and community groups will engage with each of the stages in order to explore the stories, history, memory and associations of objects.

We had a lovely workshop in the gallery today with Becky Adams and students from Coleg Sir Gar in Ammanford. Everyone brought a special object with them and made a decorated matchbox to keep it inside.
