Information

Painter and sculptor John Neville Foulkes (1937-1997) was born and lived all his life in Llanberis. On leaving school, he found employment at Dinorwic Quarry, where he worked for many years.

The exhibition at the National Slate Museum, which runs until 30 June 2013, features a small selection of Foulkes’ work, much of which was strongly influenced by his experience of working in the slate quarry.

  1. Fascinating…very honest and direct work, all the better for it’s naive quality. You can really feel his experience without much effort on the part of the viewer. I saw this exhibition mentioned in a thread on AditNow and meant to go and see, so thanks for putting this up.
