HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!
We are eight years old today (unofficially it's nine years as we were running for a year before our official launch on the 4th of July 2000).
That makes us the oldest and most successful art web site in Wales...and we still can't get funding from the Arts Council of Wales...not that we're bitter of course...just that we could achieve so much more with funding. For example, we wanted to...oh no, last time we did that some other site got our funding after our application was refused, so best to keep it under our hat eh?

Tony Goble was a constant presence in the art community of Wales for more than thirty years.
