Nearly 100 artists from all over the UK to exhibit on Swansea High Street in a huge show dedicated to contemporary drawing practices...

About

This exhibition curated by Swansea artist and elysiumgallery director Jonathan Powell offers different perspectives of the drawing process and vindicates the vitality and contemporary relevance that drawing has in art today.

From Here & There is the final part of an exchange between Colorado & Swansea which has involved Welsh and UK artists’ exhibiting in the U.S and American artists’ exhibiting at elysiumgallery, Swansea earlier this year.

From Here & There forms part of Wales’s Dylan Thomas 100th birthday celebrations and the exhibition will take place in the sprawling former Iceland Supermarket on Swansea High Street. The building was recently purchased and renovated by Coastal Housing Group as part of its strategy for the regeneration of High Street and is set to become a new artistic hub for the community.

By looking closely at the works selected: there is evidence of cultural differences in the formal qualities selected by each artist and I’d like to think that we can learn from each other, our different perceptions shared, negotiated through this latest collaborative venture’.
