The Little Stone Gallery

The Little Stone Gallery opened December 2016. The gallery was opened in order to continue to offer an affordable and accessible exhibition space for emerging as well as established artists, sculptors, photographers and jewellers to showcase and sell their artwork within the community.

The gallery is run by passionate individuals who dedicate their time to keep this popular and thriving gallery open and alive throughout the year for the public to enjoy. The gallery although small in size is great in talent and showcases some of the most exciting and talented artist within the local area.

2ND May– 16th May

‘I am based in Neath which is right in the middle between Gower and the Brecon Beacons National Park, which means I spend a lot of time and indecision procrastinating about what area to photograph! I love being on the coast first thing in the morning for sunrise; the sound of the sea, the glow of the horizon just before the sun appears and then the burst of light as it appears. I also adore being in the mountains after walking for a few miles, the landscape to myself and watching the sun set.

I am energetic in my photography and have been known to sit on a hillside in the Brecon Beacons all night, from dusk until dawn, to photograph the stars. I have also spent an hour on Pen y Fan in a -27 degree C wind chill for sunrise! The coast is a little easier, but 3:30am has seen me getting up for the day to get to Gower for sunrise.

My photography is constantly progressing and I was awarded a commendation and a place in the book for one of my photos in Take a View’s Landscape Photographer of the Year 2012 and 2015. I now run Landscape Photography Workshops to teach people how to take landscape photographs.

 

Along with my partner, I run ‘Wales Through A Lens’ in Swansea Market which is a permanent base where you can find me

Aida Garton  ‘Twenty Six Years in Wales’

Aida’s work is on show until the 17th of April 2017.

Aida Garton’s exhibition showcases mixed media works with an organic, handmade feel running through each piece. Her work is based on imagination, observation and chance.

Tackling tough subjects such as war and rebellion that she has experienced throughout her life, her project really tells the story of Aida and the Afon Morlais, their relationship and time spent together. The Afon Morlais is a small river running through south wales.

Aida reuses and recycles materials where possible, second hand frames and salvaged textiles discovered from fly tipped belongings add to the story telling aspect of her work. Every piece has a history, physical and emotional.

The artist is extremely involved in community youth projects that use arts and crafts as a form of therapy. 10% of her profits go to charity.

 

Previously on show at The Little Stone Gallery:

We were delighted to open our doors to an outstanding exhibition by Stephen Rew and Astrid Harrison. Their beautiful exhibition includes paintings using an array of unusual materials including coffee and Indian Ink as well as some exquisite sculptures and the most breathtaking equestrian photography. Exhibition ends: 20th March.

The Little Stone Gallery opens with ‘Braving the Elements’ by Mumbles photographer Anthony Dyke A.R.P.S.

The exhibition captures the amazing variety of light illuminating Swansea Bay and the local area. Anthony’s work focuses on the power of Mother Nature alone to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary, if only for a short moment in time…
