AN artist from Adpar has been selected to take part in a prestigious exhibition which is paving the way for next summer’s National Eisteddfod.

Andrew Francis, who works with a variety of encaustic wax techniques, will be joining artists from Ceredigion and beyond in an exhibition running until February 20 in the Rhiannon Gallery in the Rhiannon Welsh Gold Centre on the Square in Tregaron.

The exhibition features the work of 14 artists and offers a range of work in different subjects, approaches and media. There is also a solo show featuring local printmaker Charlotte Baxter.

“This year has been one of intense isolation for most artists and I’m sure this has pushed our work in unexpected directions,” said Andrew.

“I’m delighted to have the opportunity to break out at last and engage with other artists and visitors alike.”

“We are working hard to keep the arts alive in Ceredigion after the disappointing cancellation of this year’s National Eisteddfod due to Covid-19,” said resident artist and gallery curator Philip Huckin.

“The Gallery focuses on exhibiting the work of artists in Wales. We are pleased to welcome Andrew to one of our shows for the first time.”

All visitors will be asked to socially distance and wear masks. More information about the exhibitions can be found at , tel. 01974 298415 or email
