#AOTH2021: A Feast for the Senses

There will be a host of visual artists taking part in Art On The Hill this year. 

The visual arts are art forms that are primarily visual in nature, such as ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, design, crafts, photography, video, film making and architecture. NB. These definitions should not be taken too strictly as many artistic disciplines involve aspects of the visual arts as well as arts of other types. 

Ceramics artist, Nathan Sheen, presents A Spoonful of Love – 6 ceramic love spoons which will be exhibited across different venues: start at the Cwtsh and follow the clues to find them all. 

Newport-born, Heidi Baines, shows new prints conceived as a sound map to places visited in lockdown. 

Artist and printmaker, Bill Chambers, collaborates with Marega Palser on a visual exploration of confinement inspired by lockdown. 

See the natural world through the eyes of Newport artists, Pauline Price, Ella J Wilding and Greta Hart. 

Photography will be the main theme at St Mark’s Church again this year, curated by local photographer, John Briggs. 

Anthony Carter exhibits street portraits from Newport, Abertillery and Hay-on-Wye. 

Father and daughter team, Stephen Hammett & Temmah, show images of their lockdown walks – conversations through light, water, movement and photography. 

Jonathan Sherwood explores two bell towers with ringing bells. 

As well as the exhibitions, there will be a wide range of fun for ALL the senses, including live music, spoken word and film events across the Art On The Hill weekend: kicking off, in style, on Friday with Live at the Riverfront – an evening of FREE music. 

There will also be live music at St Mark’s Church on Saturday and Sunday, and a live music session at The Cellar Door from 4pm on Sunday evening. 

On Saturday evening Le Public Space will host CARPET SPOKEN WORD and film shorts. 

On Sunday morning log on to YouTube and watch writer Sarah M Davies as she documents her journey from Newport to Scotland. 

On Sunday afternoon, Unit 9 in Friars Walk will screen Lost In Time – the story of the Newport Clock created by Tin Shed Theatre and Mawr. 

On Sunday evening, wind down with a visit to the Phoenix Film Club at the Cwtsh.

Arts on the Hill Newport is a weekend of art and creativity on the west side
of Newport featuring open houses, events and exhibitions. Artists can open
their homes to share their work or work with partner venues and
organisations to show in other places. There’s room for all art forms with
events over the weekend to be included on a printed trail map that will be
available from partner venues from mid November each year.
