A Bundle of Joy: Untold Tales of Motherhood and Oppression
Angela C. Wild
Exhibition Dates: Thursday 23 February 2017 - Tuesday 4 April 2017
Political artist Angela C. Wild is using art as a way to explore the myths around motherhood to reach out
to isolated mothers. Her searing indictment of the way society treats mothers explores how the reality of
women's experiences clashes with false societal messages of 'perfection' and domestic bliss.
The art has grown out of the artist's own experience of motherhood.
Exhibition Preview: 23rd Feb - 4.00-5.30 with an artist talk from 5.30-6.00

'The Bird House'
Exhibition Dates: 13th April - 23rd May
The Bird House - this is a work in progress as Celf-Able's artists make an installation and video piece building on from their highly succesful 'The Bird Company' performance at ArtWorks Cymru conference.
Each artist will have a large cardboard box as a 'room' to furnish and decorate, and these will then all be joined together to form the bird house. The artists will continue the bird theme from the performance to exemplify and explore each artist's barriers to participation in everyday life. The Centre Celf gallery will provide an open studio while work is being created and then 'The Bird House' will be exhibited when completed.
