Snowdonia Arts Festival, Betws-
Welcome to the
Snowdonia Arts Festival
It is with great pride that the Snowdonia Arts Festival committee can announce that, in collaboration with the
Whitworth Gallery, Manchester an exhibition of paintings by the original members of the Artists Colony
will be on show at next years Snowdonia Arts festival. This exhibition has been timed to coincide
with the centenary of the ending of the colony.
Having seen this exhibition I can assure you that this will be the "must see' event of the year,
with paintings by Turner, Cox, Landseer, Varley, and many of their contemporaries.
The centre piece of the exhibition will be 'The Welsh Funeral, Betws y Coed' by David Cox.
In a sense these paintings are 'Coming Home' and that is the name we will give to this
wonderful exhibition. A fitting tribute to these fine painters and the legacy they left to
Details of talks and events to support the exhibition will be released as soon as we have more information.
