The Art Foundation course delivered at Coleg Menai’s Parc Menai campus is celebrating its 40th Anniversary. A celebratory exhibition should have taken place last year in 2021 to mark the anniversary, however, it had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The exhibition, which will run this year, has been aptly named ‘40 (+1) Sylfaen Celf Bangor Art Foundation’.

The exhibition will be held at both Storiel and Pontio in Bangor and will include the work of over 40 past students from the Art Foundation course who are currently practising artists and designers.

The exhibition will open to the public on Saturday, January 22nd, and run until the 2nd of April, 2022.

At STORIEL, 11am – 5pm, Tuesday to Saturday.

At PONTIO, an open weekend 12 – 7pm, Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 January, and daily thereafter.

Entry is free of charge.


Owein Prendergast, Art Foundation course leader, said:

“This is just a small snapshot, thousands of students have passed through the doors of Bangor Art Foundation Course and gone on to tread their own creative paths, and it would be an impossible task to represent them all individually but hopefully this show represents a collective spirit that those of us who have completed this special course share.”
