An exhibition of work by Celia Perceval can currently be seen at The Gallery at The Rodd near Presteigne.

An intrepid traveller and artist, Celia was born in Australia. She came to London as a child and returned to Canberra as a teenager where she painted in the bushland with her father, John Perceval, and held her first exhibition. She moved to Presteigne with her family in 1974, restoring a stone ruin near Stonewall Hill, and has made many working journeys back to Australia during that time. Her style has developed from staying in the bush landscape all over Australia, having an affinity with wild nature. Her mother Mary Boyd married Sidney Nolan and moved to The Rodd where she and Sidney founded the Trust in 1985.

Celia has worked in Italy, France, Ireland, England, Wales and India. She has exhibited widely including Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Canberra, London, Ireland and Wales and her work is held in many private collections around the world. Celia continues to live and work in Presteigne and considers herself a Welsh-Australian painter.

Showing alongside are photographs by Celia’s award-winning photographer son Tim Perceval.

The exhibition runs until Sunday, September 16, 11am to 5pm daily. Admission free.
