The Loo-vre: 2017 

 

A second exhibition of artwork by children from St Mary's has officially opened in Tenby Museum.

The Museum set the school a challenge two years ago to transform its toilet into a "thought-provoking" art gallery and the results did not disappoint.

The Loo-vre,  as it was imaginatively named, has made national news and has been seen by thousands of visitors from around the world. It has even been mentioned on Trip Advisor as one of the highlights of  a visit to Tenby.

The new exhibition features some hedgehogs made from autumn leaves, some hungry caterpillars and some owl babies as well as artwork inspired by Pembrokeshire artists Dorian Spencer Davies and Gwen John.

Curator of Tenby Museum, Mark Lewis, said: "This has been an incredibly successful project. It started out as a simple idea to challenge the notion of what a gallery space was and because of the enthusiasm of the children and their amazing artwork we have created a truly fabulous exhibition, which has captured the imagination of our visitors.  Thanks to St Mary's, Tenby Museum and Art Gallery is now home to the most colourful and interesting public toilet in Wales."
