The Montgomeryshire Canal and surrounding countryside is featured in a new exhibition of works on show at the Powysland Museum.
Ian Phillips is an artist and linocut printmaker. In 2003 he received a development grant from the Arts Council of Wales and since then he has built up a substantial collection of linocut prints focusing on the Welsh landscape.
Most of his work is completed as series based around a long distance footpath or particular area. Interest in these contemporary Welsh landscapes has been increasing steadily and Ian has been invited to exhibit alongside the most recognised artists in Wales.
Powysland Museum will exhibit a number of new prints created by Ian specifically for this exhibition and including local landscapes and sceneries. They will also be on sale.
Museum curator Eva Bredsdorff said: “Although Powysland Museum is a local history museum, we have never shied away from different themes when it comes to our temporary exhibition programme. The museum has worked with several artists including Andy Hancock and Gwen Heeney. Inviting Ian to display his works at Powysland Museum was therefore a natural progression.”
The Museum, located in Canal Yard, Welshpool, is open weekdays (except Wednesday) from 11am-1pm and 2-5pm and Saturdays from 11am – 2pm.
