Glynn Vivian is pleased to announce the return of the annual celebration of art and craft by artists and makers who live and work in the city and county of Swansea.
Limited entry times available.
Book online, call 01792 516900, or visit the gallery to book in person
The exhibition is open to all living and working in SA1-SA9, both artists and makers with professional backgrounds and others who, without formal study, have discovered the pleasures and challenges that are the rewards of creative activity.
The selection is made by a different panel of invited selectors each year, thus encouraging diverse viewpoints annually. The invited selectors this year are Caroline Thraves, Academic Director for Art and Media at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (Swansea College of Art) and Professor Uzo Iwobi OBE currently a Specialist Policy Adviser on Equalities to Welsh Government.
Three prize winners are chosen and each will receive a cash prize from the Gallery.
Also this year we welcomed Kate Bell and Anne Price-Owen from the Friends of the Glynn Vivian, who have selected the ‘Friends Award for Swansea Open 2021’. The winner will also receive a cash prize.
Congratulations to all the entries and winners from this years’ Swansea Open 2021.
