To start off these celebrations, the gallery is hosting an exhibition entitled “Time for tea”  (11 November – 10 December) in the CRiC Studio  showcasing the work of popular artists including  Jantien Powell, Jill Barneby, Liz Westcott and Patricia Kelly. Alongside the paintings, ceramics and textiles, Jennifer Collier will share items from her fantastical world, where every exquisite detail is made, folded and manipulated from paper.

The gallery is delighted to welcome paintings by members of the Royal Watercolour Society of Wales to its popular annual “Christmas at CRiC” exhibition which will run in the oriel CRiC gallery upstairs at CRiC from 15 November until early January. In the spirit of the season, Rhian Symes, who has since 2008 been an elected member of the Society, is offering a number of her original paintings, prints and unmounted prints at reduced prices for the duration of the exhibition. This will be an opportunity for her many admirers and followers to enjoy a collection of some previously unseen work. Both these exhibitions will be a celebration of art and craftsmanship which is sure to delight visitors in the run up to the festive season.

Crickhowell has a special kind of magic at Christmas and Late Night Shopping (7 December) gives the perfect excuse to enjoy the festive atmosphere. The independent High Street traders will be welcoming visitors to the town with something for everyone and a Craft Fair in the Clarence Hall will offer an exceptional collection of handcrafted gifts, eye catching decorations and a tempting array of artisan foods. This an ideal opportunity to come and enjoy a delightful evening out while getting a head start on your plans for memorable Christmas celebrations.
