A Caernarfon sandwich shop is to be the location of an unusual art exhibition about older people and their tattoos.
‘No Regrets’ is a photographic exhibition by our Gwanwyn arts festival.
It is going to be on show at the Doc Sandwich Bar on Balaclava Road, which is part of the Caernarfon-based award-winning social enterprise Galeri Caernarfon Cyf.
Featuring photography by Michal Iwanowski, the exhibition promises to deliver a positive and inspiring study of tattoos on older skin and the stories behind the ink.
Emma Robinson our Arts & Creativity Development Officer says:
“Gwanwyn has a long running association with Galeri Caernarfon.
“I’m delighted that we are working with Galeri Caernarfon again with this exhibition which will challenge preconceptions about what it’s like to be an older person in Wales.”
Menna Thomas, Galeri’s Arts Coordinator:
“We are pleased to be able to exhibit this work.
“As a company, we are always welcoming ideas and suggestions from the public and are pleased to show this work in our Doc sandwich bar.
“It is of importance for us to support artists of all ages and backgrounds – and this exhibition in particular is another way of how we support Age Cymru’s Gwanwyn festival.”
‘No Regrets’ opens at 09.00 on Monday, 6 October and is open Monday – Friday [09.00 – 15.30] until 4 November.
The Welsh Government and Arts Council of Wales support Age Cymru to run the Gwanwyn festival.
