Gallery Staff in current show

Visitor Experience Manager, Deborah Dalton has her work included in the DAC Art Prize, Aildanio, currently on show at Oriel Davies until 8 July. Deborah's work was selected for the prize last year and her work has been shown in g39, Cynon Valley Museum, Galeri in Caernarfon and Ty Pawb in Wrexham. The exhibition will move on to Glynn Vivian in Swansea.

The DAC Art Prize began in 2020 and by providing a platform for artists it has created additional opportunities for many. Deborah's large scale landscape drawings show an aerial view of her local area around Abermule, from Dolforwyn. She uses drawings and black and white photography as a starting point for her work, using a toned background to assist recognition and understand perceptions.

We're delighted to be able to showcase Deborah's considerable talent in our current exhibition. Deborah studied at Wrexham Glyndwr University where her Masters focused on Drawing: The Experience of Looking, exploring the Phenomenology of Autistic Experience in relation to Drawing following her diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Deborah began volunteering at Oriel Davies whilst studying for her BA in Fine Art, she joined the relief team, working as a gallery guide, front of house assistant, and eventually Visitor Experience Manager, welcoming our visitors to Oriel Davies, supporting volunteers, and enhancing how people experience our gallery.
