Glynn Vivian Curator, Karen MacKinnon, said: “It’s always really lovely when our annual exhibition Swansea Open comes around. It offers such a great opportunity to celebrate the wealth of creativity the people of our city have to offer. We encourage entries from all; including professional and amateur artists, art students and makers from all over Swansea.
“Even if you are not entering your work this year, please spread the word and bring your friends and family to see this wonderful celebration of diverse and exciting artworks.”
The works will be on display at the Gallery until Sunday 19 May 2024, with many of the works for sale as part of the exhibition.
