Art Society: A Swansea School of Art Archive
Art Society is a show in two parts, created in collaboration with the Glynn Vivian Gallery.

At GS Artists,  an exhibition that celebrates the art school archive. It will include photographs from Swansea photographer Colin Riddle, plus archival images and material from the art school archive as well as from lecturers and past students. There will also be video and audio recordings of participants’ recollections of the art school, exploring their unique experiences. 
And at the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, there will be a display of artworks from the gallery’s permanent collection from both art school alumni and lecturers, including works from Irene Bache, Glenys Cour, James Henry Govier, Alfred Janes, Ceri Richards, Jane Phillips, Will Roberts and many more. 
There will also be a chance for you to add any memories or thoughts to the exhibition at GS Artists as we continue to grow this archive that will live in both Glynn Vivian Art Gallery and Swansea College of Art’s archives.  This project belongs to a series of exhibitions across the city of Swansea, celebrating 200 years of University of Wales Trinity Saint David.
