The selection box is an instant art collection that contains artwork form some of the biggest names in the British Art World, all of which have been created especially to help support our Swansea gallery. Each box holds 18 pieces of artwork all signed by the artist and that focus on the handmade detail. The production methods range from watercolours, lino cuts, wood block and silkscreen, to gold-plated sculptures, cast resin, vegetable prints, photo college and digital prints. All of this is housed within a beautifully finished wooden box.
WHY ARE WE BEING SUPPORTED?
After re-locating to my hometown of Swansea, I hosted several exhibitions in my office. This organically developed into an artist’s run gallery, officially opening its doors in July 2014. Aided by a small team of artist’s who have helped steer this project, we already have a series of successful shows under our belt. Our aim has been to exhibit a very wide range of artist, at all stages of success. Galerie Simpson (Swansea) is now progressing from an artist run, into an independent non-profit space, with some very exciting shows planned, working with both local and international artists. In order to support this gallery development we will be applying for grants, but in the spirt of our DIY approach to fundraising, we have devised this box. Ultimately a great investment, this also has the added bonus of benefiting a non profit Artspace.
