Lampeter artist Margaret Sharrow has given up her car for art's sake.

She has turned her vehicle into a sculpture to be exhibited at Lampeter Town Hall.

'Shrouded car (bird)' is being featured at a special exhibition at the venue on Saturday 10 April from 1100 GMT and 1500 GMT

It complements Margaret's exhibition 'Shrouded Forms', which also runs at the Town Hall Café-Deli until 30 April 2010.

Margaret Sharrow said: "I began studying alternative ways of making photographs at Aberystwyth University, with my tutor Dr Christopher Webster.

"He really opened my mind to completely different ways of taking and making images, and provided a very supportive environment for experimentation."

Travel

While still an undergraduate, Margaret showed work at the School of Art's 'Imaging the Bible' exhibition in 2008.

Since graduating in 2009 she has also had a solo show at the Erwood Station Gallery, contributed to Michael Landy's 'Art Bin', and plans to continue expanding her artistic career.

"I'm entering work from the Shrouded Forms series in shows in Wales and London and I'm also planning a large collaborative project involving travel," she added.

Margaret was the winner of a £2,000 University of Wales Geoffrey Crawshay Memorial Travel Scholarship in 2008, which allowed her to travel to Greenland.

She said: "l still have more work planned following on from that trip and I'll be taking 'Shrouded car (bird) on tour - look out for me photographing it at locations around Wales."
