This is the largest and most ambitious exhibition of David Nash's work ever presented in Wales.

The exhibition marks the 50th anniversary of the artist living and working in Capel Rhiw – a former Methodist chapel in Blaenau Ffestiniog, north Wales. It features key sculptures from the late 1960s to the present day, exploring the different ways Nash has cut, carved and manipulated wood to produce sculptures that sit between the abstract and figurative.

Trees and the natural environment are central to Nash’s work, which extends to living sculptures including Ash Dome – a work that emerged from the planting of a circle of 22 ash trees in 1977. These time-based works are included in the exhibition through photographs, films and drawings.
