AN EXHIBIT to commemorate the centenary year of the birth of one of Anglesey's most famous artists is now open at the National Assembly.

Sir Kyffin Williams, a landscape painter who was born in Llangefni and also lived in Llanfairpwll, died aged 88 in 2006 but his art lives on at various galleries throughout Wales and beyond.

As part of celebrations to note a hundred years since he was born, an exhibition of some of his finest work is now on show in Cardiff.

For the month of October, the Senedd building is host to a number of Sir Kyffin's works from private collections.

Ynys Môn Assembly Member Rhun ap Iorwerth, who started discussions with Oriel Môn on how best to note the centenary at the Senedd, said: "Not only is Sir Kyffin one of Wales’ most famous and influential artists, but it’s also nice to see the work of someone to whom Anglesey was so important displayed here at the National Assembly.

"I would like to say thanks to David Meredith, Chairman of the Sir Kyffin Williams Trust, the Senedd team and all who organised the Kyffin in the Senedd exhibition.

"I hope that as many people as possible get the chance to visit before the end of the month."
