Scores of people came through the doors of the Dahl Art Gallery, in the Norwegian Church last week to see the art and poetry exhibition-'Sorry, i don't eat fish'- Janet and Ieuan Rhys Daniel's creative response to climate change and a celebration of the natural world.
Comments in the Visitors Book included:
'Wonderful drawings, thought provoking poetry'
'Funny and moving'
'I laughed out loud'
'Inspiring and stimulating'
'So glad I came'
£1359.88 was raised for two environmental charities-Awel Aman Tawe, a community energy organisation, and The Taffs Well Community Garden, encouraging local families to grow their own food.
A massive THANK YOU to everyone who supported, visited and contributed.
If you weren't able to get to the exhibition, you can still see and order the pictures and prints on-line. Pictures cost £150-200 and digital prints £25.
