A New Niche for Nature

The Oriel Myrddin Gallery in Carmarthen is hosting A New Niche for Nature by Anne-Mie Melis until October 15.


Focusing on the river Towy, and in particular the point at which land and water meet, Anne-Mie Melis highlights the precarious balance between rare and endangered plant species and invasive plants competing for survival and imagines a new environment or ‘niche’ in which plants might grow.

A New Niche for Nature is the fourth commission for flora, in collaboration with Oriel Myrddin. flora is a National Touring Exhibition curated by Oriel Davies and supported by Arts Council of Wales.

Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
