It was announced live on the Roy Noble programme on BBC Radio Wales on Thursday 7th July that the commission for a major work of art to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Gwanwyn Festival (supported by the Arts Council of Wales) has been awarded to Emrys Williams. The decision was a tough one with stiff competition from the other shortlisted artists; Sarah Hope from Newport, Pembs and Jan Gardner from Deganwy in North Wales. Emrys will begin work immediately and you will soon be able to follow a regular blog by the artist which will give us an insight into the work involved in such a major commission. Visit www.gwanwyn.org.uk again soon to watch this major work take shape.
