THE SUMMER art exhibition of the Llanelli Art Society at the Athenaeum Hall in Llanelli Library began on Saturday (Jul 6).

There is a range of paintings using a number of mediums on display including pastels, watercolours, oils and acrylics.

The subject matter is also wide ranging and includes some great examples of social commentary on the town itself. Some of that is social history and includes mines, miners, chapels and even the town centre of old.

Animals feature heavily and there are some great interpretations of animal life including tigers, puffins and hares.

Landscapes are as popular as ever with the members of the Art Society and there are some fine examples of local landscapes including Laugharne, the Gower Coast, Burry Port and Pembrokeshire.

The portraiture on display is of high quality and includes some nude studies.

David Shanahan (pictured) won the John Bowen Award for the best oil painting titled “Waterfall, North Wales’.

All in all the exhibition is of a very high standard and is a credit to the society. The exhibition is open until July 19th.
