MOMA Wales

The Machynlleth Tabernacle Trust was established in 1986 in order to transform the Wesleyan Tabernacle into a concert space (350 seats) for local and visiting musicians. It is also used for lectures and other events. It has become known as one of the finest chamber music concert hall in the British Isles and artists from far afield come to perform, and many ask to record there. The restoration of the Tabernacle was followed by the development of the adjoining property, and the building of a link building between that and the auditorium, that allowed four galleries for Art exhibitions under the collective name of Museum of Modern Art, Wales (MOMA Wales) to open in 1992. These galleries are open six days a week, including bank holidays, and entry is free. Approximately twenty exhibitions are held during the year, by established and emerging artists, many have an emphasis on links with Wales. The annual Open Art Competition attracts entries from throughout the UK. The Tabernacle Art Collection, comprising over 250 works of art, is kept in the building and exhibited as part of the exhibition programme. The building also has space for education and learning, mainly language classes but also used for music and art teaching. Local and national groups use the space available for holding meetings. The Trust organises the annual Machynlleth Festival in August, a week's programme of over 15 events featuring local, national and international musicians playing Welsh, Jazz and Classical music. The programme includes the Hallstatt Lecture on a subject of Celtic Heritage, the award of the Gold Medal for service in the world of Music, Art or Literature in Wales, and master classes for young musicians. Recordings of the Festival are regularly featured on Radio 3 and Radio Cymru. Development of an adjacent, historic industrial building The Tannery is well underway and will provide 2 further galleries which will enable better displays of the Tabernacle Collection and an area for sculpture. 2013 has seen the appointment of the first professional Curator at MOMA WALES and with this the desire to improve the quality and range of shows offered to visitors.

Through working in partnership we can raise ambition and deliver inspiring projects that make a positive contribution to our environment and our communities. We provide a number of services including: Project Management Exhibition curation Strategy development Policy development Public art training Fundraising We're also happy to provide advice on specific aspects of public art projects such as budgets or contracts. Our areas of expertise include art in regeneration, art in hospitals, and art and architecture. We are particularly interested in finding opportunities for craftspeople to work on a larger scale and establishing creative collaborations between artists and architects and engineers. Recent projects: Riverside Walkway, SA1 Having produced a public art strategy for SA1, Celfwaith began the process of implementing proposals. Craig Wood and Perry Roberts were commissioned to devise a series of works for the Riverside Walkway which would create an interesting trail to arouse the curiosity of pedestrians and provide surprises. The history of the docks was the subject, but to be interpreted in a contemporary way. The series of works include ships names grit-blasted into the walkway of ships registered in Swansea since 1824, boulders placed along the river's edge etched with motifs referring to the manufacture, export and import of goods from the docks, e.g. the chemical symbols for carbon, copper and iron, and floral patterns from Swansea's ceramics. 'tattoo carpet' designs etched and painted in the paving composed of historical maritime tattoos and those worn by Swansea residents today. Ysbyty Cwm Cynon Celfwaith was appointed by Cwm Taf Health Trust to produce a commissioning plan and to implement public art commissions for the new Ysbyty Cwm Cynon. A broad theme of 'bringing the outside in' had been suggested by HLM Architects and the hospital's footprint echoed the curve of the nearby river Cynon. The building was designed to harness the use of natural daylight with a particular sensitivity to the surrounding landscape, therefore texture, material and the play of natural light were also key considerations when forming the artists' briefs. Five artworks were commissioned: Atrium relief sculpture by Kathy Dalwood Lightwell architectural glass by David Pearl Sculptural seating and landscaping for the courtyard by Walter Jack Studio Glass and textile panels for the corridor walls by Laura Thomas Photographic work on diasec panels for the restaurant area by Pascal Dubois Discover the Valleys Ten artists were commissioned to create images for advertising posters to promote the South Wales Valleys under the slogan 'Discover the Valleys'.
