Jacob Buckland's first solo exhibition at Plas Glyn y Weddw - Landscape and Nature - will run from May 19th until July 14th, 2019.
Light and water is the overarching theme of an exhibition by three Cheshire based artists whose inspiration stems from nature and the natural world, particularly wild waterfalls, dancing sunlight reflected on the water’s edge,. wrack line residue and playful ravens. Three individual presentations include watercolours by Jenny Ryrie, photography and film by David Heke and ceramics by Liz Ellis. The artists were part of hugely popular Petals and Claws exhibition, celebrating 50th anniversary of the Owl Service by Alan Garner held at Plas Glyn-y-Weddw in 2018, and we are delighted to welcome the three back with this visually beautiful and thought provoking exhibition.

Brilliant young student Viktor Frankenstein discovers how to endow dead organic matter with life itself. It is one thing to stitch together an anatomically complete organism, but quite another when it becomes a living, breathing creature that shows intelligence, feels torment – and demands answers of its creator.

But the Monster is not to be put off, and it relentlessly tracks him down. Jealous that Viktor is about to marry his childhood sweetheart and create life in a more conventional way, the Monster resolves to ransom him until a wife is created for him also....
