A host of guest speakers and musician will perform at Wrexham’s pop-up art space this evening.

In an event that celebrates Wrexham’s musical heritage, a number of guest speakers will perform at pop-up art space, Undegun.

One of the guest speakers at the event is artist Stefan Gant, who will be delivering a talk about his current ‘Tug of War’ exhibition.

Stefan Gant will discuss his works & ideas surrounding drawing practice through 2D, 3D and 4D processes.
The Tug of War Drawing Project is an Oriel Wrecsam Off-site presentation supported by the Arts Council of Wales showing on the top floor of Undegun. Stefan is the first artist to exhibit work in this space.

The ‘Tug of War’ drawing project consists of three parts, two motion productions (one of which is pictured above) and the third is a 28ft x 3ft cast in graphite and resin of the ground in Llanybidder, following a National Welsh Tug of War contest.

The evening coincides with Strike A Chord, a retrospective exhibition that explores the past 25 years of Wrexham music in pictures. Featuring alongside this year’s Focus Wales THIS Project, along with Spectrum Promotions and aided with the help of many people involved with the music scene over the years, devised this exhibition and we are currently displaying a number of posters documenting 25 years of music in Wrexham Music.

This Wooden Ideal, Lovers Open Fire and local post-punk heroes Terminal will also be in attendance at tonight’s event.

The event begins at 5:30pm and is free to attend. All are welcome, wine and soft drinks will be provided.

More information about the event and upcoming exhibitions can be found on the THIS Project website, here.
