11 News UWTSD Lampeter to host Community Student Art UWTSD’S LAMPETER campus

is proud to be hosting a Community Student Art Exhibition as part of the Ceredigion Art Trail this year. The event takes place from Monday (Aug 22) to Saturday (Aug 27) from 10am to 3pm each day. Work from the UWTSD Faculty

of Art and Design, Coleg Ceredigion, and from a variety of community artists from Lampeter and the surrounding area, will be showcased as part of the event. Venues include the Victoria Hall, UWTSD Roderic Bowen library (on the Lampeter campus), and displays can also be seen in shops and cafes in the town. Lindsey Gilroy, Business

Development Officer for UWTSD Lampeter, said: “The idea to participate in the Ceredigion Art Trail this year by holding a community student art exhibition came from various community members who regularly exhibit art in locations around Lampeter. Lampeter has a strong history of art and textile production, and there is a huge enthusiasm for art here. This exhibition has seen members of the community coming together with students from Coleg Ceredigion and the UWTSD Faculty of Art and Design to develop an inclusive, all ability-all ages art display. The Chamber of Trade has been very supportive and many shops, cafes and the library are all participating by allowing artists to display their works in the windows and on the walls throughout

MAGISTRATES imposed an adjournment after a defendant failed to attend Aberystwyth Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday (Aug 17) for a progress review. Richard David Owen, 47, of

Lampeter, had previously received a community order from Aberystwyth Magistrates’ Court on May 25 for an offence of receiving stolen goods, theft and failing to surrender to custody. The case was adjourned from July

the week. We hope many people will come to visit the exhibitions in Victoria Hall and our Roderic Bowen reading room on the campus, and then wander the streets of Lampeter to observe the high-quality range of art on display next week! We hope that this will be the first of many art exhibitions in the town and we will repeat the exhibition next year as part of the Ceredigion Art Trail.” Lindsey said the exhibition can

be seen in multiple locations around Lampeter. “So, we encourage you to start at

Victoria Hall, go along to the Roderic Bowen Library on the campus to see the special exhibition of modern Islamic art by Stefan Samociuk, and then walk around the different sites. Why not make a day of it? Start at Victoria Hall, Bryn

No-show leads to adjournment

20 in order to review Owen’s progress regarding his drug rehabilitation requirement. Defence Solicitor Alun Davies

addressed the court to say that Owen has not missed any of his drug appointments with probation. Magistrates imposed a further

adjournment until August 24 at Aberystwyth Magistrates’ Court in order for the progress review to be heard.

Binge drinking behind offending A PENPARCAU resident

returned to Aberystwyth

Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday (Aug 17) after being charged with an assault occasioning actual bodily harm and for a pre-sentence report. Luke Jennings, 21, of Garth Dinas,

pleaded guilty to the offence which occurred on March 17 at the Angel Inn, Aberystwyth. Jennings changed his plea after previously pleading not guilty to the incident. With regards to the report,

Probation Officer Julian Davies told the court that Jennings was unable to remember the incident and consumes alcohol during the evenings. He also said that he didn’t hit the complainant, but had no sympathetic view during his interview. Mr Davies further added that

the defendant is considered to be a medium risk of harm and a medium

risk of offending after recently moving back to live with his mother. After leaving school at 16,

Jennings enrolled at a carpenter college and completed Level 1 of his qualification, but soon dropped out after lacking motivation. Jennings believes that alcohol was

linked to his offending behaviour and usually binge drinks at the weekend, as well as smoking cannabis when he can afford to. Magistrates considered the offence

to be of a ‘serious matter‘ and imposed a 12 month community order on Jennings. The community order will require Jennings to complete 25 days of rehabilitation activity and a punitive element of an eight week curfew. Jennings was also ordered to pay court costs of £165 and compensation of £500 for the complainant‘s two chipped teeth.

part in the event, said: “This is a rare opportunity to exhibit an enormous variety of art work - all within walking distance in the market town of Lampeter. To pull together so many talented artists in one place is exceptional and we hope there will be support with people coming to view the work.” Bronwen Powell added: “My work

is a celebration of Wales in the summer, and is mostly figurative, painting in oils, acrylic and mixed media. I also love to draw and sculpt. It seems to me that our area is recognising and realising its unique potential. One example this summer is

UWTSD and the town’s joint welcome and celebration of their student and local artistic talent.”
