Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Cymru 2010 - Blaenau Gwent and Heads of the Valleys

Roger Cecil - part of the special exhibition staged within Y Lle Celf

I went to the opening of the National Eisteddfod of Wales on Saturday evening in Ebbw Vale, we were a bit late arriving so missed the formal speeches. The show includes a special exhibition of paintings from Valley's artist Roger Cecil.

The winner for the Gold Medal for Fine Art was Simon Fenoulhet for his light installations.

The winner for the Gold Medal for Craft and Design is Natalia Dias for her collection of allegorical ceramic pieces which take the heart as a central motif. Dias is Portuguese and currently lives in Cardiff.
