Museum Of Modern Art , Wales

MOMA WALES (Museum Of Modern Art, Wales) has grown up alongside The Tabernacle, a former Wesleyan chapel which in 1986 reopened as a centre for the performing arts. MOMA WALES has six beautiful exhibition spaces which house, throughout the year, The Tabernacle Collection and Modern Welsh Art (Wales’ top artists). Individual artists are spotlighted in a series of temporary exhibitions. In July workshops are given for adults and children, while in August expert judges and then the public choose the winners of the Tabernacle Art Competition.

The Old Tannery Appeal

At least £ 500,000 NEEDED for the restoration of THE OLD TANNERY.
With the help of generous donations the Tabernacle Trust has been able to purchase The Old Tannery, a beautiful old building, adjacent to the Tabernacle and the MOMA WALES Art Galleries.

It is the intention to use the building for the permanent display of works from the Tabernacle Collection, such as the majestic portrait of William McElroy by Augustus John and Early Winter, the Nant Ffrancon Valley by Peter Prendergast. The Tannery will also provide much needed storage room.

Artists have donated works to raise funds for the Old Tannery Appeal: John Morley gave two wood engravings which already have been sold, and Sir Kyffin Williams donated a limited edition print of his painting Cottage (below). The print will be the prize in a raffle which will be drawn on Friday 22 December 2006 at the Friends Carol and Mince Pies Evening Concert.

The Old Tannery Appeal was launched at the Wigmore Hall on Friday 14 May 2004 by Robert Lloyd (Bass) and Julius Drake (Piano). Their performance of Schubert’s Winterreise was a gift to the Appeal. Further funds were raised at a supper party with Julius Drake and the Dutch mezzo-soprano Christianne Stotijn after their very successful concert during the 2005 Machynlleth Festival.
Please give generously to the Old Tannery Appeal.
Cheques may be made out to The Machynlleth Tabernacle Trust.
