On Tuesday 24th November a unique auction will be taking place at Aberystwyth Arts Centre to raise money for the Hospice at Home Aberystwyth Volunteers charity (HAHAV). The auction will be hosted by local celebrity Glan Davies, who has provided us with the following information about the event:
"Emlyn Roberts was a well-respected Veterinary Investigative Officer in Aberystwyth who died in 2007. On his silver wedding anniversary his wife Evana bought him a painting by a local artist to hang above the fireplace on the only nail in the wall in their lounge. "I don't like it. The trees are too mushed together." was his reaction, to which his son replied "You do better then!" Using some normal house paint he gave it a go.....and didn't stop painting until the day he died. A quiet, modest man, Emlyn painted over 1250 oils and watercolours and they have remained untouched in his studio in Rhydyfelin ever since. However, when Evana heard about HAHAV she had an idea and as a result we'll be auctioning 50 of Emlyn's best paintings on the 24th November."
The paintings will be on display in the Great Hall from midday until 5pm on the 24th November following which the auction will start from 6pm in the Arts Centre Bar. Entertainment will be provided by popular local singing group Elinor Powell's Sgarmes. The auction is free to attend although please bring cash or your chequebook if you wish to participate in the auction. Everyone is welcome to what promises to be an extremely special evening.
