New Graham Brace exhibition showcases two decades of National Park illustrations

Posted On : 25/01/2024

A new exhibition at Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre in St Davids is bringing together, for the first time ever, two decades’ worth of original illustrations by Llangwm-based artist/illustrator, Graham Brace.

Art in the Park comprises illustrations that have all been commissioned by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority over the last 20 years, appearing on information panels and leaflets to help visitors explore the area and understand more about the Park’s special qualities.

As well as showcasing iconic locations around Pembrokeshire, the exhibition also includes large detailed aerial views, supported by smaller drawings of features of interest at each location.

Manager of Oriel y Parc Rachel Perkins said: “The idea for Art and the Park arose from a chance conversation while hosing an exhibition of Graham’s limited-edition art prints. The extent of his long relationship with the National Park Authority came to light and that he’d safely kept all the artwork! We’re delighted to offer this opportunity to view Graham’s original work up close.”

Highlighting the important role played by illustrations in presenting information, Graham Brace added: ‘‘I hope that this exhibition shows simply not just the decorative use of art but also its practical and informative function.”

Art and the Park by Graham Brace will be on display at Oriel y Parc until Sunday 25 February. The exhibition will be open daily, between 9.30am and 4.30pm, with a selection of limited-edition art prints also on display.
