This is a terrific show, with the work drawn, for the most part, from its own holdings and it has some strong names in it – David Tress, Bryan Pearce and Geoff Yeomans among them – the last named’s passionate, sombre painting of a trawler’s raddled hull one of the best. Nothing sweet, picturesque or overblown for the most part either – see Tess Urbanska’s tough naïve ‘Island Life’ or Jean Napier’s quasi-Surrealist photo ‘Beach Wood – Menai Straits’. NU THUMB nail
