Seren Morgan Jones - It's about time

10am - 5pm
Seren Morgan Jones was born in Aberystwyth, Wales.
With women as a central theme in her work Seren creates images using elements of classical painterly language, with a subtle contemporary, feminist twist.
The exhibition brings together portraits from two bodies of Seren’s previous work; ‘History’s Eyes’ documenting Welsh women from the 19th century and ‘Portraits of Protesters’ looking at Welsh suffragists at the beginning of the twentieth century. Pieces from the museum’s Welsh costume collection, which Seren drew inspiration from, will also form part of the exhibition.
