Vulgar Earth exhibition at the Theatr Brycheiniog

Vulgar Earth – a timber giant, meta- mechanical sculpture, commentary and more!
An eclectic and thought provoking exhibition has opened in The Andrew Lamont Gallery at Theatr Brycheiniog in Brecon. Visitors are greeted by the magnificent reclaimed timber and steel giant “Reaching The End’ created by Glenn Morris. Reminiscent of The Engine Man currently on tour in Wales, this vast crawling figure peers at guests from behind the light well that showcases Simon Meiklejohn’s ‘Dark Viscous’ and his mechanically engineered steel creations that stand proud in the front lobby of the gallery. Tina Walton’s stunning textile installation ‘..what is the cost?’ of 10 thread woven bodices hanging over the theatre’s stairs leads people into the exhibition.

Vulgar Earth are a not for profit artist’s collective who believe that the world has got to ‘a
state of life that calls for another way of living’ and is open until May 20 th in the second
floor gallery at the theatre. The intention of the group’s exhibitions is to generate an
emotional awareness through art and to question and discuss the direction humanity is
going and the individuals place within it.

After a very successful show at The Canwood Gallery near Hereford in 2017 the group were approached by Punch Maughan, the theatre’s Visual Arts Coordinator to bring their thought provoking exhibition to Brecon as part of the gallery’s newly launched aspiration to feature ever more ambitious exhibitions. As well as those mentioned above featured in this year’s exhibition is the work of Verity Howard, a ceramic artist who responds to subjects surrounding people, history and places, five sculptures by Jim Carter sit well in the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the canal. Kim Colebrook has brought her very poignant porcelain memorial to Aberfan. This four part piece represents the way that people cope with a disaster that tore the heart out of a
community and the loss but also the strength of individuals who survive. David England is a self taught sculptor and the exhibition includes his piece ‘Choices’ in anacaster stone as well as his ‘Magic Theatre (Plato’s Cage)’ which is voicing an anger at corporate manipulation through public media. A stunning bronze ‘Silent Spring 2’ by Glenn Morrise completes the sculpture inventory.

On the walls is the work of Jackie Yeomans who paints on paper with soils, clays & earth pigments and Peter Horrocks who also uses natural earth pigments, clays, graphite, slate and charcoal dust in his practice. Peter has mined raw ochres from 300 feet down iron ore mine at the Clearwell Caves in the Forest of Dean and also collected others on his travels in the UK and abroad. Traces and Landmarks are themes in which he explores marks left behind in nature and their possible meaning. In contrast the ultra-violet reactive, abstract, acrylic paintings of Glyndwr Brimacombe lit up by ultraviolet lighting as you arrive by the stairs to the gallery add a significant wow factor – complimenting the large oil paintings of Rob McCarthy at the far end of the gallery.

Other contributors to the show are Maisie Noble who brings her project: ‘Beacons’ which is an immersive, cyclic narrative that was developed through Maisie’s MA investigation into the complex and multifaceted discourse surrounding Rewilding in the Welsh uplands. Seen through Virtual Reality binoculars whilst standing in a wonderful fleece floored pen, her wordless story prompts us to reconsider both our ownership of and relationship to the Brecon Beacons; a territory that has been tamed for human need. Whilst the VR binos can be enjoyed by adults and youngsters – smaller children can also enjoy an animation by Anita Sanchos. Frida Go, artist adventurer, is showing two video installations and a sound installation reflecting on justice, what we are doing on the planet and that everything stolen will eventually be taken back. Feeling life as we know it to be approaching the ends of the earth, he’s fertilising fresh futures with wild cultures of the past.

The show was opened by a performance artist, Jo Bushell and the film of this short piece will be showing in the gallery in the next few weeks. This is an exhibition that needs time and contemplation – it is well worth it!

The Andrew Lamont Gallery is open 10am – 4pm every day of the week.

How the Brecon Beacons inspired Tolkiens Novel: The Lord of the Rings

J R. R. Tolkien, is believed to have been inspired by the beautiful landscape of the Brecon Beacons National Park, to base his epic novel The Lord of the RingsMiddle Earth Maps have even re-imagined and redrawn our National Park in the style of Tolkien’s Middle-Earth! Why not come here yourself and maybe you’ll get inspired?

tolk.jpg

Tolkien is believed to have stayed in the village of Talybont-on-Usk in the 1940s, while working on parts of The Lord of The Rings. It’s easy to see similarities between the landscapes in his books and the hills and meadows of the Black Mountains. For example, the hobbit settlement of Crickhollow is similar to Crickhowell, nine miles from Talybont. Also, in The Lord of the Rings, Buckland was a colony of hobbits between the Old Forest and the Brandywine River.  Buckland Hall is believed to be the inspiration behind this- a historical mansion surrounded by woodland in Bwlch which is now used for celebrations!

Easter Sunday Strolls in the Brecon Beacons

Easter Sunday gives you a great opportunity to head out on a family walk in the Brecon Beacons National Park! Here is a collection of our top picks of walks!

1.Waterfall Country

Nestled into the southern slopes of the Fforest Fawr massif, west of Merthyr Tydfil, Waterfall Country is one of the most beautiful and popular parts of the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Fforest Fawr Geopark, with steep, tree-lined gorges and an abundance of tumbling water. Known in Welsh as Coed-y-Rhaeadr (Wood of the Water), Waterfall Country lies within the triangle formed by the villages of Hirwaun, Ystradfellte, and Pontneddfechan. Here, old red sandstone and a long belt of outcrop limestone have created a highly distinctive environment of wooded gorges, caves, swallow holes and waterfalls.

A waymarked trail along a gorgeous woodland walk is the best path to talk to get to Sgwyd Yr Eira, the most famous and stunning waterfalls in waterfall country. This walk can be made longer by taking in ‘The Four Falls Trail‘, which is at least three hours but takes in the area’s other gorgeous waterfalls. Find out more about walking in waterfall country here. 

2. Pen y Fan

Image may contain: sky, mountain, ocean, grass, outdoor and nature

A walk up Pen y Fan the highest mountain in South Wales is a must do in 2017! Challenge yourself and feel exhilarated when reaching the top where you will get suberb 360 degree views of the whole National Park. With well mainntained paths taking you to the summit as well as parking at the base of the mountain, it is an acessible and enjoyable walk for all. More here.

3. Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal

It is one of our most beautiful and peaceful waterways following the line of the lovely wooded Usk Valley, it is a true hidden gem. The navigable section of the canal runs for 35 miles from Brecon to the Pontymoile basin. Its location makes it a haven for wildlife and a favourite with nature-lovers, walkers and cyclists. The northern section forms part of the Taff Trail Long Distance Footpath, a 55 mile route that can be walked or cycled that starts at Brecon Basin and ends in Cardiff

4. Craig y Nos Country Park

Situated in a dramatic and romantic location in the secluded upper Swansea Valley, Craig-y-nos Country Park is a 40-acre Victorian garden with shady woodlands, meadows, ponds, lazy lawns and rushing rivers. You are welcome to bring your dog but please keep it on a lead. Dogs are not permitted in the hay meadow while sheep are grazing in the winter months.  The river meanders through the park, but just as at home here is the designed landscape of tall trees, lush meadows, woodland plantations, fishpond, lakes, lawns and woodland walks. There is plenty for you to see as you walk around.

5. Sugarloaf Mountain

This rewarding walk takes you up the distinctive Sugar Loaf Mountain.Viewed from some directions it has the shape of a sugar loaf or even a volcano (which it isn’t!). It is a short climb to the summit and on a clear day it is possible to see hills as far north as Shropshire and as far south as Somerset as well as many of the major mountains in the Brecon Beacons. Below Sugar Loaf, Abergavenny is an interesting market town with a castle and market hall and lots to explore. More here

6. Garwnant Visitor Centre

For a great day out for the whole family why not explore one of the many woodlands open to the public within the Related imageBrecon Beacons National Park. Garwnant Visitor Centre, owned and managed by Forestry Commission Wales, is situated in Coed Taf Fawr, a large area of forestry situated in the National Park and Fforest Fawr Geopark. Coed Taf Fawr is a large mixed woodland with pleasant walks and streams running through it. It is nestled around three reservoirs,with beautiful views.

7. Dinefwr Castle and Park

There are fabulous views from Dinefwr Castle. It was the capital of Deheubarth under Lord Rhys, a key figure in Welsh history. A Sight of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and the only parkland National Nature Reserve (NNR) in Wales, Dinefwr Park is a microcosm of Welsh heritage and natural history. The estate slopes down to the level fields forming the Tywi floodplain where small lakes on the plain edges add more beauty and interest to the landscape. Wynford Vaughan Thomas once said:  If you take a handful of the soil at Dinefwr and squeeze it in your hand, the juice that will flow from your hands is the essence of Wales.

8. Storey Arms to the Visitor Centre 

A dramatic trek through the heart of the Brecon Beacons, this moderate one-way walk through an inspiring mountainous landscape is home to rare flora and fauna. Steep descents, rocky ravines and peaceful country lanes all feature on a journey that’s packed with variety, ending at the National Park Visitor Centre. Find out the route here.

9. Talybont Reservoir and Forest

Set in the central Brecon Beacons, this is a popular place to visit with a road crossing the 380 metre long dam to forestry walks on the far side. The wide tracks in the Talybont Forest on the eastern side of the reservoir join up with the Brinore Tramroad and Taff Trail to give longer walks with no barriers. Most of the forestry tracks near the reservoir are level but get steeper further up the hill you go. Lay-bys and car parks alongside the Talybont to Pontsticill road offer good views of the reservoir and surrounding hills. There is one bird hide suitable for the disabled. More.

10. Llangorse Lake-Llangasty Bird Hide

Take a peaceful walk to the south shore of Llangorse Lake, where the wildflower meadows, reed beds and bird hide at Llangasty are an ideal spot for watching wildlife.Lots of different types of birds live in and visit the area including wildfowl and waders. The meadows around the bird hide are on level terrain and support a wide variety of wildflowers, including orchids, which carpet the meadows during the summer months. The bird hide which has benches and built-in bird guides is designed to accommodate wheelchairs. There are two routes to the bird hide:

The route from the car park at Llangasty Church passes through 3 narrow kissing gates. This is a level and gentle 700 metre walk across meadows, a small bit of woodland and short sections of boardwalk over the wettest areas.
If you are unable to walk far or you use a wheelchair, there is a route which allows cars to get closer to the bird hide. If you wish to use this route please contact the National Park warden service for more details. This route should only be used during the drier times of the year, with help needed to open the 2 large gates to the slipway. There is a gently- sloping, bumpy but wide grass path which leads to the ramp up to the bird-hide itself. This site is sometimes flooded during the winter. More

11. Llyn y Fan Fach


A remote Carmarthenshire lake in the West of the National Park is shrouded in Welsh legend.

Llyn y Fan Fach, 12km southeast of Llandovery in the Brecon Beacons and is home to the tale of The Lady of the Lake.

“The story goes that in the 13th century a farmer grazing cattle on the nearby slopes spotted the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen.“She was a fairy maiden, who agreed to marry him on one proviso – he must not hit her more than twice.“In time, the inevitable happened – three strikes, and the otherworldly wife disappeared back into the lake, taking her magic cows with her.”
Here’s a link to a walk to Llyn y Fan Fach and Llyn y Fan Fach

12. Carreg Cennen Castle

Carreg Cennen is a haunting, atmospheric castle that appears to spring out of legend and fairytale.

Carreg Cennen Castle never ceases to amaze. There are few castles in Wales which can boast a more spectacular location. Its stout, weatherbeaten ruins crown a sheer limestone crag overlooking the remote Black Mountain (Mynydd Du) and the River Cennen in the western corner of the Brecon Beacons National Park, around four miles southeast of Llandeilo.

An attack on the castle must have been a daunting prospect. Ingeniously adapted to its rocky hilltop, its core is a high walled, strongly towered enclosure, protected by a succession of pits, drawbridges and gatehouses. Approach from the other direction is impossible, for the castle tiptoes on the edge of a sheer 100m cliff.  Find out more here
