Horizons… The furthest we can see, a point at which to aim, where the dawn first appears from the darkness and storm clouds can gather. Our horizons are not set, they can be artificial, and human experience allows us to constantly expand and re-evaluate our own, as they represent both our limits and a line we can strive to go beyond.
As part of FOCUS Wales 2014 BBC Wales are launching their new project Horizons, to support emerging welsh bands, here in Wrexham at new pop up art space Galeri 3B on Priory Street in Wrexham. The gallery occupies the former Laura Ashley shop on Priory Street and is the second disused shop unit taken on by local arts organisation THIS Project.
To celebrate the BBC Launch THIS Project has invited 12 of Wrexham’s brightest and best emerging artists to respond to the theme, Horizons, creating new works of art and show the incredible talents of artists who live and work in the town.
The work has been produced by:
Jo Marsh (featuring Wanderbox); Mark Roberts (sculpture); Francois Grobler (Winner of the Wrexham Open 2013); Michael C. Jones; Erica Taylor; Kasia Miller; Asia Janusz (photography); Heather Wilson; Joey Edwards (film); Lewys Jones; Rhi Moxon; Adam Pritchard
Both the BBC Project and the exhibition launch this Friday, in the middle of the Focus Wales Music Festival, and the public are invited to come along to Galeri 3B to enjoy the music and artwork, and find out more about what is going on throughout the county, as this month is also the Wrexham’s art festival – Creative International – which has over 60 events throughout the month all over the county.
