Gallery 2 & 3
Julia Griffiths Jones
Room within a Room
“Being Welsh, but inspired by Folk Art from Eastern Europe has meant that my life and artistic practice has been entwined across many countries. Room within a Room is a culmination of my favourite drawings from many journeys and contains – amongst other things – a blouse and cap from Slovakia, a red striped bed-gown and a three-legged table from Wales, a chair from the wine museum in Bratislava.”
In 2014 Julia was awarded a Creative Wales Ambassador Award to revisit Eastern Europe and spend some time at Ruthin Craft Centre developing her ideas for A Room Within A Room, the exhibitions showing here are the result of those artistic journeys.
