First new show of the year, Residents Spring Show opening on 9 March.

The Spring Show at the Waterfront Gallery in Milford Docks has opened its new programme with an exciting selection of art from their gallery residents.

Chris Prosser is demonstrating his painting skills with his large acrylic seascapes, alongside new oil paintings of Pembrokeshire coastal and landscape scenes by Sandra Phillips together with Ray Burnell's small `plein air `oil landscapes which contrast with the brightly coloured large impressionist still lifes from Ken Maycock which contrast yet again with the traditional, representational watercolours painted by Graham Hadlow,

More painting work includes Ruth Sargeant 's subtly coloured, bold yet fragile abstract mixed media work heavily influenced by the atmosphere of Pembrokeshire and Lynn Parr continues to experiment with her mixed media, textile dominated pieces, whilst Helen Barrack explains how she is enjoying creating new colour combinations, some of which are unusual in the local landscape.

Award winning painter John Cahill continues with the intricate details of his large North Pembrokeshire dominated work and Tina Lewis is showing her pre-occupation with people and animals in the local landscape.

Showcasing photography are multi award winning wildlife photographer Paul Richards who's a gold medal winner with the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain and has recently been shortlisted in the Bird Photographer of the Year,2016; alongside Heather Bennett is showing atmospheric misty mono seascapes of Pembrokeshire and Royston Packer his colourful images from a recent trip to India.

There's craft work from artisan blacksmith Alan Perry demonstrating his skill with unique ironwork clocks, single and triple candle holders and fireside items. Riitta Sinkonen-Davies, who is working mainly in linen and silk, shows the strong influence of her Finnish background and her love of Pembrokeshire and Joy Jenkins tactile textile felt work shows the concept of wearable art with her scarves, brooches and bags.

Amongst the ceramicists is recently graduated Jade Sims with her range of domestic containers for the home inspired by a vintage palette of glazes and Marion Walker with her large modern pieces using oxides and glazes to achieve a spontaneous and individual finish.

David Randell, the Gallery Director said "We're delighted to be showing so much local talent. It is a very varied show with something to delight most visitors to the gallery which continues to go from strength to strength."
