Her life through art: Winifred Coombe Tennant's collection on display at National Museum Cardiff

She was a supporter of Lloyd George, became a member of the Gorsedd at the National Eisteddfod, wore the traditional Welsh costume every day and is today remembered as one of the most significant art patrons of the 20th Century. A new exhibition which opened at National Museum Cardiff on 26 July 2008 delves into the life of Winifred Coombe Tennant (1874 - 1956) who befriended artists and collected their works, with the hope of creating a national art collection.

Call for expressions of interest: Celf Cymru Gyfan – ArtShare Wales

Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales has secured a further three years funding from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation to develop Celf Cymru Gyfan - ArtShare Wales, the visual arts partnership programme which was piloted between 2005 and 2008. The original scheme saw the museum working with five fixed regional arts venues each with a distinctive remit, including a collection-based organisation, two dedicated contemporary art spaces, an applied art and craft venue and a historic house museum. Projects ranged from small single artist displays to larger survey exhibitions, and involved major new commissions, numerous artist  development opportunities and multi-partner working relationships. While the scheme's ongoing purpose is to extend access to the national art collection, Amgueddfa Cymru now plans to widen the scope of ArtShare Wales, both in terms of eligible partner venue and projects delivered.
