Thanks to a follow-on grant from the Art Council of Wales delivered through Span arts, we have been able to produce a set of postcards showcasing the popupwest project, which over the last six months has showcased the creativity of more than 30 young people through 9 diverse art installations in two empty shops in Haverfordwest.
The project was designed and delivered by spacetocreate community arts and as well as providing support by matching the young people with experienced Artist mentors, we have also successfully piloted the setting up of meanwhile leases on town centre properties that might otherwise have remained empty.
All the young artists and their mentors will receive a complete set of cards and the remainder will be available for a suggested donation of £4 per pack or 50p per card, with proceeds supporting future community arts projects in Haverfordwest.
Between 12.30 and 3.00pm on Saturday 6 July the Mirror’s Image Artists will be celebrating their intriguing cabinet of curiosities by opening up Unit 3 at the Riverside Shopping Centre to family, friends and the wider community.
Come along and take a closer look at this exceptional body of work made by George and Hannah Parfitt, working with Pauline Le Britton, who has also included a number of pieces including this screen-printed tryptich.
The final pieces are all in place, including this powerful lenticular painting by George Parfitt. At the opening on Saturday 6th of July there will be drinks and cakes and a chance to talk to the Artists.
