To mentor, nurture and support the professional artistic growth of
emerging and early career artists across the Visual and Applied Arts
The Jane Phillips Award is a memorial to Jane Phillips (1957 – 2011) Mission Gallery’s first Director.
The Jane Phillips Award has been successful and is evolving, responding to the artistic community and forming new partnerships. We wish to develop and broaden the scope of the award by introducing two new exciting prizes, plus a year long programme of Residencies, including an international partnership, which will exist alongside the main award.
We will support, on an annual basis, two Art and Design graduates of UWTSD, Swansea and Carmarthen with a Student Prize. This will be in the form of an exhibition at our offsite space within the National Waterfront Museum, plus a Graduate Residency at the new Elysium Studios on High Street in Swansea. These will exist alongside and complement, the main Jane Phillips Exhibition Award which continues to be biennial. This will be in the form of a solo exhibition at Mission Gallery and bursary.
Jane Phillips award is administered by Mission Gallery www.missiongallery.co.uk
