Join us for this special exhibition celebrating 40 years of Mission Gallery!

 

In 1977, a group of artists set up Mission Gallery (then Swansea Arts Workshop Gallery), and for many years galvanised and sustained an artist run, voluntary organisation, which saw Turner and Jerwood Prize winning artists exhibit, as well as local and Wales based artists. Mission Gallery is proud of its rich and layered history and this summer’s exhibition will provide a glimpse of the stories, memories and highlights, with texts by writer and curator Sally Moss, events, activities and workshops.

For this 40th Anniversary exhibition, our current and past Staff, Volunteers and Board of Directors will be selecting their favourite Artists and Makers from the last four decades. Contributions and donations via artwork, workshops, writing, poetry and music as well as comments and congratulations from those who have been involved, supported, enjoyed and loved Mission Gallery, will all be part of a summer of celebration and activity. Look out for our digital exhibition catalogue with text by writer and curator Sally Moss, themed workshops and also ways to donate and support Mission Gallery and its future forty years.
