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.

Vulcan Sewing Machines...for the lucky little lady

Sian Conti - starting early on her dressmaking career

Becky Adams' installation in the gallery struck an immediate chord with one of our gallery staff. Sian Conti is our resident seamstress, she trained for four years in dressmaking at Carmarthen School of Art back in the day, but as can be seen from this photo, she started young - she's about 7 years old here and stitching away on a little Vulcan sewing machine very similar to the one Becky has brought in to the gallery.
