Exhibition preview: Bethan Huws, Margate

Stour Valley Arts, Sat & Sun, Margate Seafront, to 6 Dec

Surprisingly for an artist who represented Wales at the Venice Biennale in 2003, and who has created public art commissions, Bethan Huws is relatively unknown in Britain, perhaps due to her move to Paris in 1991. Her practice is incredibly diverse, from conceptual artworks to bucolic watercolours. This summer she was commissioned by Turner Contemporary and Stour Valley Arts to create a work about Margate. Her response is a magical film set in the town's Winter Gardens, showing in King's Wood, and two text works inspired by TS Eliot's 1922 poem The Waste Land, which the poet composed while recuperating from an illness in the town.
