Courage and Community – RNLI 200 Cymru

29 June 2024 – 1 June 2025
In 2024 we celebrate 200 years of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, the charity dedicated to saving lives at sea. There are six lifeboat stations and 13 RNLI lifeguarded beaches along Pembrokeshire’s beautiful but hazardous coastline. Be inspired by the stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things, with games and activities for the whole family. One of two exhibitions in Wales to celebrate this special year, the collaboration between Amgueddfa Cymru, the RNLI and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority also sees displays at the National Waterfront Museum, Swansea.

Hawthorn Maggie Brown

The St Davids Room - Hawthorn - Ddraenen Wen by Maggie Brown

Friday 7 June – Sunday 4 August
Hawthorn - Ddraenen Wen expresses Maggie’s lifelong connection with nature. Taking this iconic shape of the Pembrokeshire windswept tree, Maggie has chosen it to be central to her study.

Maggie will return over time to some of these local old hawthorn trees where she will continue to paint, draw, and record them through the different seasons, different weathers, acknowledging the wildlife that depends on them and exploring the wild, local places they inhabit. Maggie hopes her paintings can evoke a sense of being in the moment, allowing the viewer to share in her observation of nature and perhaps even help in its conservation.

Rachel De Wreede

The Tower - Life in Colour by Rachel De Wreede

Friday 7 June – Sunday 28 July
The constant influence of the beautiful colours of Pembrokeshire are in Rachel’s thoughts and evolve on the canvas. The changing seasons are a source of inspiration, such as the pink of the campions in summer or the slate blue skies over the sea in winter. Rachel’s colour palettes reflect the National Park’s beauty, and each piece reminds you of Pembrokeshire’s radiating aura.
