As well as picnicking on the cliffs, partaking of a beer or two down at the pub, we did, during our weekend away mange a little art and culture, St Davids has a flourishing artistic community, with plenty of galleries and exhibitions to be seen, it is a landscape that inspires; in one of those blogging , small world moments, WOL posted about one local artist, Adam Buick and his wonderful pots .
I recommend this video, about the gallery, it illustrates the Pembrokeshire equivalent of drystone walls, which are more floral than the Derbyshire genre.
it also has the briefest of glimpses of my very favourite exhibit, what I called the Nija hare, a beautiful dynamic sculpture of a boxing hare, I soooooo wanted to bring it home with me*.
It is good to go to a gallery with the likes of Mrs Ogg, for she does what she modestly calls ‘colouring in’ for a living and knows lots of stuff about arty things that I don’t.
So by the time we got around the coast path, I’d made all sorts of connections to the work we’d seen and the landscape.
now that I call a win win situation.
*I don’t even know who the sculptor was, shame on me
