Glynn Vivian is delighted to announce the return of Swansea Open. The Swansea Open is an annual art competition open to anyone who lives or works in the City & County of Swansea (SA1-SA9), and is a celebration of art and craft from artists and makers throughout the city. The selected works from the submissions will be shown in the Gallery.
This year’s invited selectors are visual artist and Visual Arts Development Officer for Disability Arts Cymru, Alan Whitfield, and UK-based art historian, curator, writer and Lecturer in the History of Art at the University of Bristol, Dr Zehra Jumabhoy. The selectors have chosen a first, second and third prize and will announce these at the event. In addition, the Friends of Glynn Vivian Art Gallery will also award a prize of £200 for a selected artwork.
Throughout the exhibition, visitors will also be invited to select their own favourite artwork in our ‘People’s Choice’ award.
