16 College Street
elysiumgallery is an artist led, self sustaining enterprise comprising of 25 artist studios and a contemporary art gallery at 2 locations in Swansea City Centre, Wales, United Kingdom. We support 13 artists’ studios and a gallery space at 16 College Street, Swansea and a further 13 studios at 2 Mansel Street, Swansea.
Elysium gallery promotes the work of artists by providing a solid platform from which they can anchor themselves and provide a comprehensive national and international network to increase their exposure.
elysiumgallery strives to provide support for emerging and established artists and art organisations as well as encouraging pride and participation in local visual and performing arts in an environment that promotes experimentation, freedom and appreciation in all creative practices. This helps to bridge the large gap between emerging and established artists, whilst continuing to strengthen, promote and sustain the vibrant Welsh arts scene.
The gallery is a curated space, programmed through directed curatorial and panel selection. The organisation has a main programme of events but leaves gaps in its calendar for impromptu events and exhibitions (see gallery hire section). The studios form an artistic community that enable the artists and Elysium gallery to support each other.
elysiumgallery is not for profit organisation and is not revenue funded by the Arts council of Wales. Revenue from hire of gallery and studio spaces directly funds our programme of activities and running costs.
elysiumgallery was established in 2007, and is run by 4 directors; Jonathan Powell, Sarah Williams, Daniel Staveley and Ann Jordan and a dedicated core of volunteers.
