Following the interest and success of black and white photography exhibitions in previous years, the Waterfront Gallery in Milford Docks has organised another one this month.

David Randell, gallery director, explained: "A slight difference this year is that in addition to photography we are extending the medium to include all 2D artwork as well."

Sandra Phillips charming small one foot square drawings in pen, ink and wash show distinctive well-known Pembrokeshire buildings, Treleddyd, the Boathouse at Laugharne, Abereiddy cottages etc, and are in sharp contrast to Raul Speek's dramatic four feet square representational 'Welsh Black' painting of three Welsh ladies in traditional dress.

Also concentrating on iconic Pembrokeshire buildings are photographer Heather Bennett's larger works of St Non's, John Piper's cottage and the old Mathry village store.

Heather commented: "I think black and white photography makes an image ageless and holds the seeds of drama within its depths of contrasts. I'm certain it changes the viewer's emotional response."

Helen Barrack's acrylic shoreline pieces feature tidal Pembrokeshire with observations on Nolton Haven, Broadhaven South, and Llangwm and on a similar theme Pauline Latham is showing mixed media work focussed on rocks, tide wash and debris from the north of the county.

Using similar sources abstract painter Sian Jones concentrates on the movement of water from the sea to the river and back and the patterns it makes at the Llangwm Estuary.

Landscape painter Anne Kerr, who works in mixed media, is also seeking inspiration by constantly looking at nature to trigger that special response whether it's on the coast or inland and often utilising her original print work with her paintings.

Showing something completely different photographer Philip Clarke, at one with nature with his hand-printed studies of trees and roots, clearly demonstrates the different effects of hand-printed, photographic prints from his own darkroom.

David Randell added: "We're delighted with the response for the call-out for black and white work. It's a really varied show although the inspiration for much of it comes from the same source. Not all our gallery artists contributed in black and white so we are also showing coloured work in other areas of the gallery alongside crafts."

The exhibition which runs until July 17. The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday 10.30am till 4pm, closed for lunch 12.30pm till 1pm.
