Gallery owner Ralph Sanders. said:“It’s amazing to think we have been bringing work from talented artists to North Wales for the past ten years.

“Although we officially opened on Wednesday, July 8, it is wonderful timing that we are able to celebrate our tenth year with visitors for all over now the lockdown has been lifted.

“While closed we have still been selling art work online, but we’ve also been really productive working on a lot of updates and improvements, including a new outdoor seating area. So we are looking forward to welcoming everyone back.”

To coincide with his 60th Birthday celebration, Welsh painter Mike Briscoe RCA, from Colwyn Bay, has produced a new collection of works from his time spent in Venice and of his experiences of both America and closer to home.

“The paintings are a mix of observation and the experience of being in the moment, time spent and experienced. The locations act as a back drop to distant memories and more recent experiences,” explained Mike of his new show.

“It is eighteen months or so since Mike’s last, sold-out show with us. For this new show, for his 60th Birthday, he has made a collection which focus once again on the feelings and ideas which tug at him.

“The work is as always detailed, accurate, photographic perhaps; but it is always concerned with the emotional and psychological switch between inside and outside.

"We’re delighted to have Mike back exhibiting with us alongside our Summer celebration exhibition.”

Ffin y Parc’s 10th Anniversary Summer exhibition and Mike Briscoe RCA solo runs until Wednesday, August 12.
