An Artist in the WorldJane Phillips Award

08 October - 13 November 2021

Opening event : Time to be confirmed

Launched at Mission Gallery in 2011, the Jane Phillips Award is a memorial to Jane Phillips (1957-2011) Mission Gallery’s first director. The award is intended as a legacy to Jane’s passion for mentoring and nurturing talent, working with individuals at every level - offering opportunities to students as well as artists at the beginning of their journey. Opportunities that are further strengthened by working with Mission Gallery’s team, Swansea College of Art UWTSD and elysium gallery.

The award became international under Amanda Roderick, Mission Gallery’s previous director, and with further assistance by following directors Matthew Otten and Ceri Jones, plus an enthusiastic board, the award is constantly developing and changing.

This exhibition celebrates the success and accomplishments of the previous ten years. It may only be a small group of artists here, but they’ve all experienced the award in different ways - from residencies, studio spaces, graduate showcases, curatorial projects or exhibitions.

Claire Densham, Jane Phillips Award Committee member and sister to Jane Phillips:

“My late sister Jane Phillips passed away, 10 years ago. Jane was the first director of Mission Gallery, Swansea. To celebrate the Jane Phillips Award’s 10th anniversary the committee are organising an exhibition of previous winners. We want to raise money so the success of the award can continue. 

I shall be running in the Swansea Bay 10k on the 19th September, so wish me luck and please donate. Thank you”
