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.

Mystery object revealed...

Thanks to those who had a guess at our mystery object brought into the gallery for Project Object: Collect by Rolande Thomas – Arts Council of Wales Arts Development Offier. It belonged to his Great Aunt in Swansea and we have now been told it is a teapot drip catcher - an essential item to save your posh table cloth from becoming tea stained!

The object was also shown in the Carmarthen Journal newspaper and we did hear from a lady called Eva from Llandielo who guessed correctly because her mum used to use a similar object.
Project Object: Collect has now closed, but we had the most wonderful contributions from our visitors, many of which were really quite moving and poigniant - thanks again to all who contributed.
