Forthcoming  Event Friday 1st July 7pm

The name of the winner of the third Osi Rhys Osmond Art Prize will be revealed at a function in the Memorial Hall, Llansteffan during the evening of Friday July 1st . Entry is free and all are welcome to join in the celebrations with live music, to look at the art work of shortlisted entrants and to enjoy a glass of wine and tasty canapés at a very reasonable price.

The raffle will also be drawn. The raffle prize, selected by Patron Dr Chris John, is a unique single copy framed print of a painting by Osi and is on display in Oriel Osi (image and related poem below). Only 200 tickets have been printed for sale at £2.50 each, therefore a very good chance of winning a valuable work of art. 

A book launch of Osi’s essays will also take place.

The entries by students of the Carmarthen School of Art will be exhibited in Oriel Osi on The Square, Llansteffan from Saturday July 2nd for the whole of the month.

Correspondence by Osi Rhys Osmond

I cherish those unconsidered moments

When we find ourselves unaware

Between things

Times of completion or of waiting

Rising, dressing, gathering, resting

We pause in disregarded places

Posed in unexpected correspondence

Irregular, tangential

Sitting, lying, walking

Strangely unaligned for customary communicate

Then, unconsciously between each other

But as one

We talk, think, dream and stare

The world seems vacated

There is no beginning and no end

Time has vanished

There is only us

And we, are one.
