They're showcased at the council's Glynn Vivian Art Gallery alongside other talented Welsh artists.

They come together in the Disability Arts Cymru (DAC) Arts Prize exhibition Aildanio (reignite) that runs at the free-entry gallery until November 5.

Phillippa said: "This exhibition has been really well received in other Welsh locations over the past 10 months and I hope people in my home area will enjoy it."

Leila said: "It's great to be a part of Aildanio and have my work seen by such a big audience - and to be able to run a textiles workshop at Glynn Vivian."

Council cabinet member Elliott King said: "It's great to see Phillippa and Leila among such good company. This show is another top quality attraction at the Glynn Vivian."

Disability Arts Cymru visual arts officer Alan Whitfield said: "The exhibition highlights a wide range of wonderful artworks from DAC members."."

Aildanio is funded by Arts Council Wales and features 25 pieces of work by disabled and/or deaf Wales-based artists.

The works were selected from more than 100 submissions of creative responses to a reignite moment.

The Glynn Vivian is open Tuesday to Sunday 10am-4.30pm.
