Glynn Vivian Opening Weekend 15 – 16 October 2016

| 4 Comments

The newly developed Glynn Vivian Art Gallery reopens on Saturday 15 October 2016 after a multimillion pound transformation.

With more gallery and social spaces, a new library, lecture theatre and community room, the Glynn Vivian will offer a warm and welcoming environment for the enjoyment of art. The exciting new additions also include a café, shop, and lift to all galleries, so more people than ever can enjoy access to the artworks and exhibitions.

To launch the opening weekend celebrations, seven artists have been working with local communities to prepare a grand Opening Parade and walking procession to welcome everyone back to Glynn Vivian and into the new building.

  1. When is Glenys Cour exhibition?

  2. I can’t find an up-dated page with opening times to reflect the fact that you are open again. Are any of Ceri Richard’s and Frances Clayton Richard’s paintings on display?
