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.”

BBC The One Show films are aired!

Dominic Wright copy DSCN1700 copy16 minutes, 34 seconds into the programme on Tuesday 31st of March it was good to finally see the film shot last August in St Davids, Pembrokeshire when eleven artists, ranging from professionals to students to amateurs spent a day drawing as many portraits as we could. This was in support of Grahame Hurd-Wood who is working on a project to paint every resident in the UK’s smallest city – the film featuring his project was shown on the previous day.

Am pleased that some good shots of both myself and my chalk pastel portraits were included. You can see a brief glimpse of me working on my portrait of Dominic (above) in the film.

Catch the programme on iplayer for 28 days from date of transmission.

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.”

Transmission dates are pencilled in for Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th of January, 2015 but are subject to change. One film features Grahame Hurd-Wood and his ongoing project painting portraits of every resident in St Davids, Pembrokeshire. The second film shows myself and eleven other artists rising to the challenge of drawing as many portraits as we could in one day. This took place on a lovely sunny day at The Goat Street Gallery, which overlooks St Davids Cathedral, on the 7th of August 2014.
