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.

William MacKenzie blog on Society of Women Artists London exhibition 2016

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.

Reach Final Version

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.”

Interesting blog!

Vibration copy

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.”
