Waves of light to raise funds for charity
Published 12/05/14



A PAIR of artists are showing a selection of their work at the Old Fire Station Gallery this week in order to raise money for charity.

Rosalind Nicholson’s artworks are focused on light and movement in landscape, energy and exuberance in her life-drawings and portraits.

She is exhibiting several paintings that depict the ways in which weather colours our view of the landscape. Her life-drawings range from moving figures to serene, relaxed poses.

The exhibition will include 40 portraits of a friend who died this year, which show the animation of the weekly sittings that emerged from a series of conversations between the sitter and Rosalind, as well as producing a body of work that charts the evolution of the portraits over the last year.

Non Davies’ landscape paintings symbolise the energy of the land, and strengthen her appreciation of the physical and spiritual forces of nature.


In exploring the landscape of South Wales, the camera became an important tool in “painting with light”. The archival photographs of the miners on view depict changes in the terrain and social fabric during the pit closures of the Eighties.

Non’s work comes full circle with a return to autumnal landscapes in her Dancing Leaves series of paintings which seek to express the energy flow drawn from the earth and into the light.

Profits from both artists’ work will be donated to Prostate Cancer UK and Sobell House Hospice.

Light Waves, featuring the work of artists Ros Nicholson and Non Davies, is at the Old Fire Station Gallery until Tuesday.
