SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

 

The Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture is joining forces with the Powysland Museum in Welshpool to hold a special winter exhibition of the artist’s works until March 6.

This exhibition at the Powysland Museum will also offer opportunities to buy or commission works by Logan, who opened his museum of sculpture in Berriew in 1991 and celebrated an auspicious 25-year silver anniversary in 2016. 

Born in Witney, Oxfordshire in 1945, Logan qualified in architecture in the late 1960s and has worked across the fields of sculpture, stage design, drama, opera, parades, festivals and interior design.

Believing “art can be discovered anywhere”, he crosses cultures and embodies artistic fantasy in a unique and unprecedented way. His work is the art of popular poetry and metropolitan glamour. 

From his early fame amongst London’s fashionable crowd, he has become an influential artist of international stature, with exhibitions as far afield as Los Angeles (USA), Monterrey (Mexico), St Petersburg (Russia) and Mumbai (India).

His Museum of Sculpture is open from 12 noon-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays throughout June, July, August and September and by arrangement. Entry is only £3, or £1.50 for concessions, and family tickets are available.

Eva Bredsdorff, Powysland Museum’s senior curator, has been mentor to the Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture for a number of years.

“It’s only natural that the Powysland Museum should host an exhibition of the extraordinary and magical works of this fascinating and inspirational artist,” she said.
The museum collections cover the archaeology and social history of the old county of Montgomeryshire and the three permanent galleries reflect these areas. A fourth gallery is reserved for temporary exhibitions.

Powysland is open 11am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm on weekdays, except Wednesday when it is closed and 11am to 2pm on Saturday.
