Eleri Mills is one of Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw’s leading gallery artists. Eleri has been a supporter of Glyn-y-Weddw since Dafydd and Gwyneth ap Tomos’ era and it is an honour for us to exhibit her work.

Born in Llangadfan, Powys in 1955, Eleri Mills studied Art and Design at Manchester Polytechnic before returning to live and work in the same Welsh-speaking rural community in which she was brought up. The beautiful landscapes that surround this small community are the greatest influence on Eleri’s work. Growing up on a farm, the land has always been integral to Eleri’s life and has instilled in her a strong sense of belonging.

She is a master at working with both hand-stitched pieces and mixed media paintings.  She depicts a vision of Wales that is multi layered, highly personal, timeless, poetic, real and other worldly.  Whilst rooted in a passion for the history of ancestral Wales, her work is also contemporary. 

Eleri has exhibited her work both in London and Wales for many years along with a continuous presence throughout Europe, the USA and Japan. Eleri was elected to the Royal Cambrian Academy in 2000.  Previously the winner of the Most Outstanding Exhibit at the Art of Stitch Exhibition at the Barbican, London, in 2010 she won the Creative Wales Ambassador award from the Arts Council of Wales and was artist-in-residence at Columbia University, New York in 2012.

 

As a leading gallery artist we always have original work from Eleri Mills on display or in storage at Plas Glyn-y-Weddw. If you would like to arrange a private appointment to view her work, please contact us to arrange a suitable time.
