A new exhibition entitled, Cymru a’r Môr /Wales and the Sea, and inspired by the stories and images from the archive collections of the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, the National Library of Wales and Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, and Cadw is now on display at Plas Mawr. Themes of the exhibition include Tales from the Deep, Inspiration from the Sea, Castles and Cloaks, Peril between the Waves as well as the more light-hearted Beside the Seaside. This exhibition was created to celebrate the magnificent coast, dramatic seascapes, and active inland waterways of Wales, all of which, teem with life, adventure and legend. These waters have shaped not only the coastline of Wales, but also the history and imagination of the Welsh people. Notable images in the exhibition include the painting of Forest Cove, Cardigan Bay (1883) by the Pre-Raphaelite artist John Brett (1831–1902), a sea chart of Aberystwyth Bay by Lewis Morris, the self-taught hydrographer from Anglesey (1701–65), and an early depiction of coracle men by Julius Caesar Ibbetson on the banks of the River Teifi.

The exhibition will be on display at Harlech Castle, from 18 July to 12 August 2019
