Information about visiting the Art Rooms
If you are not a member of the University or King’s College you will need an invitation to visit the Art Rooms to show at the main gate on King’s Parade. Please ask for an invitation by emailing the artist or agent (see email address in the exhibition information). The invitation can be printed or displayed on a mobile phone.
The Art Rooms are at the top of Staircase A. Turn left after the main gate and head for the student bar and coffee shop in front of you. Just before the main door to the bar there is a white door on the left. Climb two flights of stairs to the second floor. Please note there is no lift access. If the Art Room main door is closed, please enquire at the Porter’s Lodge. Please bear in mind this is not a public gallery or a fully managed exhibition space and the Rooms are used for a variety of activities
Wynne Jenkins – Paintings September 24th - October 20th 2017
An autobiographical note from Wynne Jenkins
“I am a native of Llangennech, Llanelli, but have been living in Carmarthen for nearly half a century. After a career in education, I now concentrate on expressing myself through painting in oils.
The form and colour of the landscape and buildings of my Wales are my love and inspiration. The palette knife is my medium. My initial influence was my Art Master at Llanelli Boys Grammar School, John Bowen. I admire the work of Kyffin Williams and Lucien Freud. Currently my main influence is Gwilym Pritchard [Welsh painter who died in 2015].
Painting affords the opportunity to transform well-known and much-loved scenes into an art form. In this way one becomes aware of the timelessness of our seas and mountains. The challenge is, by using a palette knife, rather than a brush, to express with precision the emotional response to nature. I seek to paint not only that which is seen and felt, but also that which is not seen - one layer at a time, until the dream is realised.”
