On Saturday 7th March at 2.30pm, we look forward to the London launch of Jill Piercy’s book ‘Brenda Chamberlain – Artist & Writer’.

Jill Piercy will be talking about her book in the beautiful surroundings of Mall Galleries.

“This first full length biography chronicles the life of a prolific twentieth century Welsh artist and writer. Brenda Chamberlain’s work was directly inspired by the places she lived in notably Bardsey Island, the Greek island of Ydra and her visits to Germany and France. The book is illustrated with colour plates, drawings, maps and photographs.

Jill Piercy is an exhibition curator and writer specialising in contemporary art and craft from Wales. She has curated three exhibitions of work by Brenda Chamberlain.”

It will be held in the exhibition space, and we would like to thank Parthian Books and the Rhys Davies Trust for organising this event.

The evening will be introduced by Dr Richard Lewis Davies, publisher and writer, and winner of the Rhys Davies Award, and Wales Publisher of the Year Award.

Supported by Parthian Books / Rhys Davies Trust.
