An Artist in the World

An exhibition celebrating 10 years of the Jane Phillips Award

08 October – 13 November 2021

Location: Mission Gallery, Swansea

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.
