Aesthetically arranged waste slate, abandoned rubbish in lush countryside, weathered wood and a dawn chorus are all part of an exhibition being launched in Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre in St Davids, Pembrokeshire on Saturday, October 20.

Oriel y Parc, a Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Visitor Centre, which is also home to Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales in Pembrokeshire, has brought together a fresh representation of the landscape of Wales since the emergence of conceptual art in New Ground Landscape Art in Wales since 1970.

Artists include Brendan Stuart Burns, Keith Arnatt, David Cushway, Mike Perry, Terry Setch, Anthony Shapland and David Nash, who, alongside Richard Long is one of the UK’s most significant exponents of Land Art and whose work is held in collections world-wide.

Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales’ Partnership Projects Curator Bryony Dawkes will be conducting two guided tours on one Thursday per month beginning on October 25. The tours will take place at 11am and 2pm at Oriel y Parc on October 25, November 22, December 20, January 17 and February 14.
