Mission Gallery Wikipedia
Mission Gallery is an art gallery in Swansea, Wales.
The gallery hosts contemporary art, painting, installation, photography and craft. Formerly St Nicholas Church for seamen, Mission Gallery was designed by Benjamin Bucknall and built in 1886. The building became an art gallery in 1977, named Swansea Arts Workshop Gallery. An arts initiative, it was managed and run by a group of artists and volunteers as part of the Association of Artists and Designers in Wales, linked with Swansea Studios. Since the dissolution of the Association of Artists and Designers in Wales in 1992, Mission Gallery and Swansea Studios are now separate organisations, with Mission Gallery receiving grant funding from the Arts Council of Wales. In 2003 Mission Gallery Become a revenue client of the Arts Council of Wales, resulting in its first full-time paid member of staff.
Mission Gallery is divided into two areas, an exhibition space and a craft space. The craft space features a changing display of contemporary crafts and applied art and design.
