Gardd Gorwelion / Horizon Garden explores community and alternative growing in response to the societal urgencies that are climate change, social isolation, loneliness and food poverty.

As part of the exhibition we’ll be profiling some of Wrexham’s Social Art and growing projects including Coedpoeth Community Garden, Erlas Walled Garden and Incredible Edible, as well as Tŷ Pawb’s Maes Parcio Creadigol/Creative Car Park – the community garden project being developed on our rooftop.

We’ll also be profiling examples of national Useful Art/Social Art projects including GRAFT– a garden and community workshop space led by the artist Owen Griffiths, in partnership with National Waterfront Museum (NWM) and NTH/NYA; Grandby Winter Garden – a community-owned space developed by Grandby Four Streets and architects Assemble; and Company Drinks – a community space and social enterprise based in Barking and Dagenham.

Emphasising the wellbeing benefits of nature, the exhibition will also serve as a lush and vibrant green escape for visitors, featuring work by visual artists Morag Colquhoun, Owen Griffiths, Jackie Kearsley, Sumuyya Khader, Jonathan LeVay, Ann McCay, Aidan Myers and Alessandra Saviotti.

The exhibition includes two new artworks commissioned by Tŷ Pawb alongside existing work by Welsh and UK based artists.

We’re also delighted to be able to present a number of artworks loaned from Amgueddfa Cymru, by Graham Sutherland, Maurice de Vlaminck and Dr Harold Drinkwater.

Gardd Gorwelion/Horizon Garden will be open from 28 January until 8 April 2023.

Gallery opening times: 10am-4pm, Monday-Saturday.
