Celebration of Mildred Elsi Eldridge, artist wife of RS Thomas

The Welsh poet RS Thomas had an international reputation for his work but what is less well known is that his wife Mildred Elsi Eldridge, was a very talented artist in her own right.

A large collection of her work - which ranges from oil paintings to book illustrations - is on display at the Gwynedd Museum and Art Gallery in Bangor.

On Wednesday night the museum is hosting a celebration of her often overlooked artwork.

Esther Roberts, curator, talked to BBC Radio Wales' Oliver Hides.
