SLATEWORKS by Margaret Lloyd
Burnett Gallery, Jones Library, 43 Amity Street, Amherst, MA
Opening Reception: Thursday, December 6, 5-8pm (Amherst Arts Night Plus)
The art is either on roofing slate directly from Wales or from Vermont. You can see the variety of pieces below. The work includes landscapes inspired by Wales, cromlechs found in Wales, engravings of medieval Welsh images, and even an engraving of 1930s hobnail boots worn by a Welsh slate quarryman.
Margaret Lloyd will be there to welcome everyone and Sarah McKee, a Celtic harpist, will play from 5-7pm, and she is going to particularly include Welsh tunes!

Margaret Lloyd has presented her poetry at our WSWNE luncheons. She was born in Liverpool, England, of Welsh parents and grew up in a Welsh community in Utica, New York. She received a PhD from the University of Leeds, England, and has published a book on William Carlos Williams’ poem Paterson. Travelling on My Own Errands: Voices of Women from The Mabinogi is her fourth collection of original poetry. Her poetry honors include a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, several Pushcart nominations, a fellowship to the Bread Loaf Writers Conference, and residencies at Yaddo and Hawthornden Castle in Scotland where she finished Travelling on My Own Errands. Lloyd is Professor Emeritus at Springfield College, Massachusetts.
