First for Ludlow

Welsh artist Eleri Mills has selected Twenty Twenty Gallery in Ludlow as the first venue in Shropshire to hold a solo exhibition of her work. Eleri lives and works in rural Mid Wales, and she has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad including the Museums of Modern Art Kyoto and Tokyo, Barcelona and Madrid.

In 2011 she won the Arts Council of Wales’ Creative Wales Ambassador award followed by a three-month residency in New York at Columbia University. Eleri has exhibited from 2004 to 2008 at the Victoria and Albert Museum and in 2017 and 2018 at London’s Saatchi Gallery.

Her work is featured in national collections including the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester, National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh and the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth. It is probably fitting that such an international Welsh artist should choose Ludlow as the setting for her first solo Salopian exhibition; it was once after all the seat of the Council of Wales and the Marches, from 1473 to 1689.
