Carmarthen Antiques & Flea Markets
The highly regarded Carmarthen Antiques Fairs will incorporate vintage dealers alongside antique stalls in 2015.
Fair organisers Robert and Carol Pugh have built a good reputation for their Flea Markets at Carmarthen Showground and have decided to combine these popular events with their more traditional antiques fairs.
PAINTING BY INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED ARTIST TO BE SOLD AT THE
CARMARTHEN ANTIQUES & FLEA MARKET
Amongst some of the most sought after items to be sold at the next Carmarthen Antiques & Flea Market on Sunday May 17th will be an original painting by internationally renowned artist Sir Kyffin Williams.
Almost a decade after the Welsh painter’s death aged 88 his work remains sought after by fans and collectors around the world.
The “old school” artist was renowned for his traditional landscapes – but the watercolour on sale at the Carmarthen Antiques & Flea Market is a more unusual bird study and features a standing heron. It is signed with the artist’s initials in pencil and is framed.
Williams was born in Llangefni, Anglesey into an old landed family. In 1937 he joined the Royal Welch Fusiliers as a lieutenant but failed his medical examination (because of epilepsy) and his doctor advised him to take up art.
In 1941 he enrolled at London's Slade School of Fine Art and taught art at Highgate School in London, where he was senior art master from 1944 until 1973. In 1968 he won a scholarship (The Winston Churchill Fellowship) to study and paint in Y Wladfa; the Welsh settlement in Patagonia.
He was President of the Royal Cambrian Academy and was appointed a member of the Royal Academy in 1974. In 1995 Williams received the Glyndŵr Award for an Outstanding Contribution to the Arts in Wales during the Machynlleth Festival. He was awarded the OBE for his services to the arts in 1982 and a KBE in 1999.
As well as works of art antiques enthusiasts and collectors who will make their way to Carmarthen on May 17th will find ceramics from three centuries, military memorabilia and toys as well as furniture and vintage jewellery and clothing, both in the inside exhibition space at Carmarthen Showground and on the land outside. This event like all in the 2015 programme takes place between 10am and 4pm..
