To celebrate his solo exhibiton at GS Artists ” Dragons Revenge, Political Work, 1970-2020, Jamie Reid is coming to Swansea to explain what inspires and motivates his troublemaking!

Joined by Rhys Mwyn, punk, historian and broadcaster, his friend for many years, the talk will certainly move around, but will be guaranteed fascinating!

Scott Mackenzie in conversation

FRIDAY September 6th 6 PM

GS Artists is proud to host an in-conversation event featuring current Artist at Work, GS co-director Scott Mackenzie, whose superb show, NOTHING HAS CHANGED is exhibiting now.
Subtitled “From Aberfan to Grenfell”, the work provides a cross-section of the zeitgeist, exposing raw nerves and shattered attention bearing on our personal and political stasis at a time of great…change?
September 6th at 6 p.m. Scott will be live at GS, taking questions from gallery directors and interns, and the public, on the nature, content and sensibility of his new work.

Please join us then for what will be an energising exploration of the work of an inspired young Welsh artist!
Part of GS Artists’ “Artist at Work” scheme that has already featured estimable talents such as Tim Davies, Tomos Sparnon and Sarah Poland, Scott’s show is a fine addition to this series of shows highlighting contrasting techniques and perspectives across a wide spectrum.

Introducing Jane, founder of the Yoga Collective.

“I found my self in yoga classes trying to step out from the stress of the Art world, and it became my secret weapon for life. With 15 years of yoga experience, I’m a self-declared yoga tart having tried out a huge range of classes, ranging from Sivananda in South Indian Ashram, to Ashtanga and Strong Hatha, with a range of amazing teachers. In 2009 I completed a yoga teacher training at Triyoga in London, and very recently a 200-hour Ashtanga Modified Primary Series with the excellent Jamie Blowers.
I’ve picked out the elements that resonated to create my own classes. Not exactly a size ten, and with some limited range I have always championed classes for all. My classes will be hard working with a huge amount of attention to why and how to inhabit postures, also a bit of cheek. Welcome! Wednesdays at 6 pm.

1st of March 2019 – 6:30 pm

GS Artists invites you to an evening of celebration of our nations patron saint.

The evening will commence at 6.30pm with the very first of our Welsh Conversational’s, a new series of Welsh Language events at the gallery entitled ‘Mynegiant’. Tomos Sparnon will present a short illustrated talk focusing on Mynegiant (Expression) in Welsh art, including reflections on the current show at that time, by Tim Davies. Questions and conversation in Welsh will be encouraged but translations will be offered, the objective is learning some new words but in a lighthearted way, it is Friday night after all : )

Then around 7.45pm, the shenanigans begin, the shackles will be loosened. We are delighted to have secured Catrin Saran James, who will be spinning her extensive Welsh Popular Music Collection. Food and drink will be available.
