The unique v ision behind Barry’s w ork is about the transformation of things you and I might throw away, from rusty spoons and old toasters to salv aged bike and car parts that have outlived their use. The Rhondda based sculptor has gained much recognition in the past for his ingenious collections and with some new additions this show is going to amaze visitors to the gallery during its run.

His exhibition goes on display in Y Galeri Caerffili from Tuesday 25 July until 2 September. Open Tuesday – Saturday, 10am - 5pm. free admission.
