For those of us who are despairing about the amount of time we spent watching tv and eating too much over the festive season - the Dylan Thomas Centre may have just the thing.

Their solution is a calorie-free lunch designed to stimulate the mind.

It's all part of the Art for Lunch sessions at the Swansea centre.

The latest will feature artist Cherry Pickles, whose vibrant canvases portraying the Dominican Republic and Haiti are currently on display there.

She lives and works in Pembrokeshire, but has travelled extensively, painting landscapes in Greece and many other countries, as well as her native Wales.

Previous sessions have included talks on Directing Shakespeare, the art of Stanley Spencer, and Holy Wells.

Forthcoming 'lunches' will include Anne Price Owen talking about David Jones, Jen Wilson on how African American music came to Wales, and Stevie Davies on George Eliot.

Cherry Pickles will discusses her work on Friday 15 January at 1pm.
