Jacob's Ladder and All the Sea View Sheds

24 March – 7 April 2023 | 24 Mawrth – 7 Ebrill 2023

The previous exhibition at Theatr Gwaun in September proved unsuitable for the display of Zillah Bowes’ large photographic prints of locations and views from Goodwick Harbour Village. The three large works and her poem ‘Jacob’s Ladder’, shown in previous exhibitions, were installed in the upstairs gallery of West Wales Arts Centre in Fishguard in March 2023, along with a further series of three images, All the Sea View Sheds, which had not been seen before. 

Zillah introduced her work and reflected on her experience of working in Fishguard and Goodwick in an opening for the show on 24 March.

On the following day Jon Gower launched his new book The Turning Tide: A Biography of the Irish Sea, and a booklet for Ports, Past and Present: A Flock of Words: Explorations of the Irish Sea. This was followed by a performance of We Have Always Been Your Harbour by Peter Murphy and Dan Comerford, with a new and powerful musical score.

Roedd yr arddangosfa flaenorol yn Theatr Gwaun ym mis Medi yn anaddas i arddangos printiau ffotograffig mawr Zillah Bowes o leoliadau a golygfeydd o Bentref Harbwr Wdig. Cafodd y tri gwaith mawr a'i cherdd 'Jacob's Ladder', a ddangoswyd mewn arddangosfeydd blaenorol, eu gosod yn yr oriel i fyny'r grisiau yng Nghanolfan Celfyddydau Gorllewin Cymru yn Abergwaun ym mis Mawrth 2023, ynghyd â chyfres arall o dair delwedd, All the Sea View Sheds, nad oedd wedi'u gweld o'r blaen.
Cyflwynodd Zillah ei gwaith a bu’n myfyrio ar ei phrofiad o weithio yn Abergwaun ac Wdig mewn agoriad ar gyfer y sioe ar 24 Mawrth.
Drannoeth lansiodd Jon Gower ei lyfr newydd The Turning Tide: A Biography of the Irish Sea, a llyfryn ar gyfer Porthladdoedd, Ddoe a Heddiw: A Flock of Words: Explorations of the Irish Sea. Dilynwyd hyn gan berfformiad o We Have Always Been Your Harbour gan Peter Murphy a Dan Comerford, gyda sgôr gerddorol newydd a phwerus.
