Students art exhibition at Dylan Thomas’ Birthplace

Bringing to life the Birthplace of Dylan Thomas at 5 Cwmdonkin Drive in the Uplands has been the challenge of a group of Photography in the Arts students from University of Wales Trinity St Davids Dynevor Campus who hold their Art Installation Exhibition at the house on 19th and 20th November.

The students – Chloe Gosby, Robert Jones, Bethan Laurence-McGuffie, Elen Maggs, Brooke Stephens and Aleesha Williams – spent a number of days soaking up the atmosphere at the house which has been decorated in the style it would have been as a new house in 1914.

Said Elen Maggs “It is 99 years since Dylan’s birth and our work has been inspired by his life and what we discovered in the house.”

Each student has a different project some of which will interact with the visitors to the exhibition.

Added Bethan Laurence-McGuffie “As a group of students we feel privileged to create work in remembrance of Dylan Thomas, the world renowned poet.

“It was a challenging yet rewarding project that will awaken the presence of Dylan Thomas in his family home.”

The free exhibition will be open to the public on Tuesday and Wednesday 19th and 20th November at 11:00-15:00 and 17:00-20:00
