Barnabas Arts House, New Ruperra Street, Newport, is hosting work by Welsh artists including David Bellamy and Jamie Routley, as part of an exhibition called ‘Welsh Country Views’. The three- week show by the Campaign for Protection of Rural Wales is the third annual landscape art exhibition, which will run until October 11. And in addition, visitors will also have the opportunity to take part in master classes given by Jantien Powell, well-known for her interpretations of the Welsh countryside and country life, this Friday, from 11am-1pm.
