Welcome to Oriel Mimosa Exhibitions. This page will bring you the latest information about our ongoing exhibitions at our gallery at 70 Rhosmaen St, Llandeilo.
Oriel Mimosa is excited to announce that we will be having an exhibition of works by landscape artist, Peter Kettle - opening in our new gallery on Wednesday 1st July.
Peter Kettle was born in Wales in 1987 and brought up in Carmarthenshire. He studied fine art at West Buckland School in Devon and then went on to continue his studies in Cardiff. He now has a studio in Bristol but often returns to Wales to immerse himself in the landscape, taking his sketchbook to record the colours, textures and weather elements. Peter uses a variety of mediums to create the weathered surfaces of his impressive landscapes, including clay, French chalk and Shellac with oil.
In March 2019 Peter travelled to Nepal, to hike to Everest Basecamp. During this trek he collected litter to be recycled in his work. One of the aims of the project was to highlight the ongoing efforts to clean up the rubbish and discarded hiking equipment left by the hundreds of people who visit this part of the world every year. This is Peter's 'Everest Basecamp Exhibition'.
