Between the Lines By Glyn Pooley
Type of Event: Art Exhibition
Between the Lines is an exhibition of portraits celebrating the strength of community life in Wales and its links within the U.K. and beyond. From local builders, teachers, first responders, park rangers, politicians, grandmothers to ocean rowers and Tibetan Buddhist monks, the project aims to show how strong the Welsh community is, how it links with a global community, and to shine a light on who these people are and what they value.
Subjects include Dr Rowan Williams (former Archbishop of Canterbury), Rt. Hon. Carwyn Jones (First minister for Wales), Nev Wilshire (C.E.O. The Call Center), Darcus Howe (civil and BME rights campaigner), Molly Conway (campaigner), the late Stan Stennett M.B.E. (entertainer), Dilys Colburne M.B.E.(campaigner), Professor Baroness Finley of Llandaff (founder of Holm Towers cancer hospice), Steve Brace (Olympic athlete) and Professor, Deirdre Beddoe (Historian) together with a whole host of other fascinating people.
Artist Glyn Pooley says, 'Through my art I try to uncover the truth that through determination, enthusiasm and time it is possible to achieve the goal of happiness. This understanding is gained when it is realised that everyone and everything is interconnected. By moving the emphasis from oneself, to helping others, with an honest motivation, it is possible to obtain a greater understanding of life’s purpose. When art reveals this understanding, it too, through its contemplation can offer insights into gaining greater happiness.'
