Car­ers’ beau­ti­ful mo­saics are on show at ex­hi­bi­tion

Bangor Mail - - NEWS -

YOUNG Car­ers from across An­gle­sey have re­cently taken part in an in­spi­ra­tional pro­ject, work­ing with artist Rhian Price to cre­ate beau­ti­ful mo­saics based on the Quar­ter Ses­sion col­lec­tion held by An­gle­sey Ar­chives.

Or­gan­ised by the Ac­tion For Chil­dren char­ity and thanks to the Chang­ing Cul­tures Grant from CYMAL, the young car­ers were given a guided tour around the Goal and Court in Beau­maris and ac­cess to the Quar­ter Ses­sions col­lec­tion held by An­gle­sey Ar­chives.

The Quar­ter ses­sions were for­merly ses­sions of a court held four times a year by a jus­tice of the peace to hear crim­i­nal charges, as well as civil and crim­i­nal ap­peals in Eng­land and Wales.

This ex­pe­ri­ence gave them a greater in­sight into the in­di­vid­u­als named in the doc­u­ments, and gave in­spi­ra­tion to their art work.

Through­out the ex­pe­ri­ence they were guided along by artist Rhian Price, who said: “The pro­ject gave these young car­ers a chance to join in ev­ery step of the way, even cut­ting the porce­lain tiles, tesserae, into small pieces and en­sur­ing they were the right shape.

“The fin­ished pieces are a trib­ute to the hard work of the young peo­ple in­volved.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion of their work, at Oriel Mon, runs un­til Oc­to­ber 5.
