Exhibition now open.
This July, my work will feature in a Royal Watercolour Society of Wales exhibition at Oriel Y Parc, St Davids. Due to the pandemic, the exhibition will be initially held online.
The theme for the show is ‘Vision and Heritage’, displaying work showing the landscape and life of Wales in all it’s varied forms and including images reflecting the diverse beauty of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
We are hoping the exhibition will physically be able to happen either later in the year or next year.

Very pleased to have four paintings selected by Cate Cheng, gallery director, for the forthcoming exhibition ‘BIRTH/REBIRTH’ at Boundary Art in Cardiff Bay, a unique combined gallery and tea room. Exhibition runs from 25 March to 6 May 2017, gallery open Wednesday to Sunday 11am to 6pm. (Closed Monday and Tuesday.) www.boundaryart.com Photos will be posted as soon as available! The East/West philosophy of the gallery links in with my long term personal interest in Asian culture, and my study and practice of Tai Ji Quan and Qi Gong. Further Information about Boundary Art Cardiff’s newest art space, Boundary Art opened in 2015 and devotes itself to the fusion of communication and promotion between Western and Chinese cultures. The gallery is fast developing a reputation for dynamic and distinctive programming to support artists from across the visual spectrum and from across Wales and beyond. Visitors have the unique opportunity to browse original art works and to relax in their Chinese tea room.
The core ideology of Boundary Art has always been about the communication and trans-boundary of the arts, culture and thoughts. The gallery offers an international platform for artists, curators and writers and welcomes all audiences, aiming to encourage everyone to engage with art, prompting questions and supporting debate.
Just delivered 4 paintings to John and Margaret in sunny Tenby for the first show after their winter break. Always good to feel Spring is on its way! Exhibition runs from February 11th to 28th March. The gallery winter opening hours are 10am to 5pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. (Gallery closed on Sunday and Wednesday.) Further information including images of the entire exhibition are on the website https://artmatters.org.uk/
In William MacKenzie’s art blog he wrote a very interesting feature on the SWA annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London. Click on the link below to see the full post.
This is what he wrote about my painting titled Reach. ”Andie Clay’s ’Reach’ is done in the frustratingly unhelpfully described “mixed media”. I would like to know what. There is some acrylic in there maybe. I like the movement in this piece with the bird like marks exploding out of the monstrous shape. Energetic piece.”
Came across this blog recently. Flattered that she likes my work, and that she thinks they are painted by a male artist!
“These are some pictures from his sound and vibration gallery and his earth and water gallery. I absolutely admire this work as each stroke works perfectly combine with big bold strokes to small lines, curved or straight or sharp, and in each picture, each of these strokes works so well with the colours that it automatically hits you with emotions. Not only does he do this, but he also draws out basic lines which can be seen as figures or objects or nature and gets your mind exploring the image more creatively.”
I was pleased to welcome you all to my new year open studio-both local regulars and new visitors from near and far, including a couple who had seen my work on exhibition in London and travelled down to visit me in my studio.
You are invited to my New Year Open Studio to see both framed paintings and ongoing work together with many sketchbooks. Studio Open 2-4 January, 2015.
