We are currently displaying work by the following artists
Leanne Bevan-Clark, photographer
Leanne is a keen photographer based in Wales. Her interest in photography stems from scouring her parents’ photo albums as a young child. Lockdown provided the ideal environment for her to develop both her skills behind the camera and editing the results to create the perfect image. In 2020 she set up ‘Oakdale Photography Group’ in her local community centre. She has produced her first exhibition ‘Taken in Wales’ which Moderna is pleased to be launching with Leanne in her home town of Blackwood. In her words ‘I love Wales and I love photography!’ and her first exhibition successfully and creatively combines both her passions.
