Barbara Price - Local Artist and Exhibitor at The Seaview Hotel

Although Barbara is trained in textiles her main passion remains painting
(oils , watercolour, pastels and more recently collage), as it enables more freedom, the range of techniques vary with the subject matter. The main inspiration for her work comes from the ever changing light of Pembrokeshire and the effect this has on the mood of the subject. Her more recent work has been concentrating on portraits and figures, starting from an underlying idea based on a sketch and photographs, which then develops spontaneously.

Her textile work has won her a prize at the National Eisteddfod, exhibited at the Commonwealth textile exhibition in Edinburgh, where she was asked to demonstrate and again in London. Barbara’s paintings have won prizes at the Fishguard Music Festival exhibition and at Artfest as well as being selected for the RI. annual exhibition, in the Mall galleries, London and at many other galleries nationally.

Barbara Price will be working with us at The Seaview Hotel to facilitate art workshops and demonstration days. Please contact us if you are interested in more information.

The Oriel Glan y Mor gallery exhibits work at The Seaview Hotel throughout the year inviting you to enjoy a glimpse of the beauty of Pembrokeshire’s spectacular scenery, culture and treasures whilst staying with us. You can purchase any of the paintings on display or venture into Fishguard to view a wider array of local art.

This charming and friendly gallery is situated in the centre of Fishguard, just off the roundabout on Market Square. Owned by artists Margaret Jones and Beth Robinson (also known as the opera singer Beth Michael) it is an Aladdin’s cave of art and craftwork by local artists and craftspeople. You’ll find original paintings from £30 upwards as well as prints and cards. Much of the artwork depicts the beautiful scenery of North Pembrokeshire, but there is also a selection of nudes and still life. The craftwork includes handmade jewellery, basketware, pottery, wooden bowls and boxes, hand made felt, silk painted scarves and cushions, fun jigsaws, and a host of unusual and decorative gifts.

There are various exhibitions scheduled throughout the season including Flowers and Figures from 28th June until 25th July – an exhibition of the work of the late Royston Hopson featuring paintings completed just before his death earlier this year.

There are many more galleries and craft centres in and around Fishguard for you to enjoy. Why not spend a few days with us at The Seaview Hotel and explore? Please contact us for more information on accommodation.
