Oriel 1

Posted by Chris Owen on 4 October 2007

Cyfarchion o Oriel 1!

Yr wythnos hon fe ges i gyfle i arbrofi gyda sesiwn i blant ysgolion cynradd r'yn ni wedi ei galw'n 'gemau dyfalu'. Dwi ddim yn siwr os yw hyn yn beth da neu'n beth drwg ond roedd yr Oriel fel syrcas am yr awr a finne ar fy nglinie am weddill y diwrnod! Bydd rhaid cael stamina gwell na hyn o rywle! Roedd ymateb y plant yn ddiddorol a'u gallu i gyffroi dros gynnwys yr Oriel yn wych!

Mae llawer o ymwelwyr wedi dangos brwdrydedd dros gynnwys yr Oriel newydd a gyda'r sylwadau cliriaf i aros yn fy nghof yw gwraig ganol oed yn dweud wrtha i, "This really is wonderful, but mind you, the old gallery was like a museum". Dwi ddim yn siwr os mai mynegi siom oedd hi neu beidio, efallai nad oedd hi'n gwybod yn iawn. Fodd bynnag mae'n sicr yn yr achos hwn, nad oedd cynnwys yr Oriel yn cydymffurfio i'r hyn yr oedd yr ymwelydd yn disgwyl ei weld yn yr amgueddfa. Gellir dadlau mai dyma enghraifft glir o'r Oriel yn deffro'r ymwelydd i'w amgylchedd gan ei atgoffa mai nid ymweld a'r amgueddfa er mwyn cael golwg ar y gorffennol a wna.

Dyma un sylwad a nodwyd ar gerdyn sylwadau am arddangosfa gyntaf yr Oriel, 'Perthyn', 'Hmmm, not sure what this is all about - Belonging - where?' A dddylai cynnwys yr Oriel gynnig atebion? Dyma sylwad arall sy'n treiddio i'r cwestiynau sylfaenol ynglyn a beth yw oriel ac amgueddfa.

Dewch draw i rhoi eich barn, neu rhowch sylwad yma os ydych chi wedi ymweld! Rwy ar ruthur braidd yn anffodus...ond wedi cael blas ar y blogio 'ma tro 'ma...felly mi fydda i nol ma arna i ofn!
