Follow the art trail at Roath festival

Most people visit galleries for catch a glimpse of artwork, but people in Roath are opening up their homes to display local artists’ work as part of the Made in Roath Festival. Open house art galleries encourage community integration as members of the public can talk directly with artists in their own homes about their inspiration and influences.

Festival co-founder and open house host Helen Gubb, and her sculptor husband Dominic will be opening their home at 231 Inverness Place on 20th and 21st October. Helen notes; “The main ethos behind the festival is encouraging people who might not ordinarily be interested in the arts to engage with the arts and creativity in all its forms.”

The festival will be running from 12th-21st October 2012.
