The ‘Literary Atlas’ project explores how English language novels set in Wales contribute to our understanding of the real-and-imagined nature of the country, its history, and its communities. In 2017, ‘Literary Atlas’ commissioned artists to create new artworks inspired by twelve of the books plotted on the project – here is the exhibition of the work.

'Pedair' are Pat Butters, Cheryl Crichton-Edwards, Theresa Fox-Byrne and Anwen Hughes. Four Artists living and working in North Wales, whose work is deeply rooted in the welsh landscape and culture.

  • Pat Butters focuses her theme on seascapes, coastal walks and landscapes around North Wales.
  • Cheryl Crichton-Edwards explores where the land meets the sky and sea. Learning the language of water, rock, slate and sky through mixed media, weave and watercolour.
  • Theresa Fox-Byrnes comprehensive practise includes experimenting with colour, delicate and gentle.
  • Anwen Hughes finds the Welsh language and culture extremely important to her and she often incorporates a welsh adage, nursery rhyme or poetry into her work.
