One More Day Less

18 January - 11 April

10am - 5pm

Free (donations welcome)

One More Day Less is an exhibition of new work from Tregaron born painter Beth Marsden. Exploring the human and geological cycles of destruction and construction that govern our planet, Beth reflects on the hope that we embed in our constructed world and our horror at seeing it deconstructed. Through two-dimensional painting and three dimensional installation the work will talk of our obsessive need to build, expand and create, even while things disintegrate politically and environmentally.

What did this question mean to him? Should he really be going or was he already home? In April 2018 Michal set off on foot to find the answer.
