FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - May 13, 2010 - The Glynn Vivian Art Gallery has now launched its free activities programme for May and June to accompany the new exhibitions which opened at the beginning of May.

There’s an exciting mix of talented Welsh artists for you to see and enjoy, with live music, performance, talks and discussion, everyone is welcome.

The Gallery’s programme of events is devised to appeal to a variety of people, not just for those who are just interested in visual art, and has previously included film screenings, live musicians and book readings.

The events programme begins this Friday 14 May at 1pm with Welsh artist Bedwyr Williams, as he talks about his current work and future offsite projects.

Bedwyr uses a broad range of media to create his work including videos, photography, performance, drawing, text and the occasional stand up comedy and karaoke.

His sense of surrealistic humour and sharp mind will make this event an experience not to be missed.

Gordon Dalton, Interpretation Officer at the Glynn Vivian said, “Bedwyr is one of the most interesting artists working today. He constantly surprises, baffles and entertains audiences, often at his own expense. “

Visit the Gallery on Friday 28 May at 3.30pm and you will see performance artist Paul Bridgeman perform as his alter ego Chowchoo Papillon singing some of Shirley Bassey’s classic tracks in this Free:30 live music session.

This is the second performance by a Swansea based musician as the Glynn Vivian gives local artists the opportunity to perform in the wonderfully atmospheric venue in Alexandra Road.

Chowchoo Papillon said, “I am so pleased to have to opportunity to perform at the Glynn Vivian as it is such a different venue for me. My show will be full of fun and laughter and suitable for everyone to come and see.”

Next month, acclaimed Welsh author Rachel Trezise will be giving a talk and reading from her new novel Sixteen Shades of Crazy. Rachel, who is originally from Cwmparc in the Rhondda valley will be at the Gallery on Friday 11 June at 1pm.

There’s plenty for the family too as children’s art books are available free to complete to help you enjoy and engage with the art work on display.

Art and craft workshops for children of all ages will also begin again in June throughout half term holiday and on Saturday mornings for 11-14 year olds.
