(News) Launching our Young Artist-in-Residence Programme

We are beside ourselves with the excitement of launching our Young Artist-in-Residence programme – the first in the Gallery’s 79 year history!

The Young Artist programme aims to celebrate, promote and bring the Swindon Collection of Modern British Art to life! It also provides a unique development opportunity in a professional arts environment for young Swindon artists.

We are DELIGHTED to announce that the Swindon Museum and Art Gallery Inaugural Young Artist-in-Residence is…….. JAMES KEEL.

James is an A Level student at New College, Swindon, studying Fine Art, Photography and Media Studies. He has a particular interest in drawing and eventually hopes to use his skills in the creative industries.

James will be working on creative responses to help interpret and explore Swindon’s nationally significant collection. He will also act as a young ambassador for the Gallery, looking to inspire other young people with an interest in art, He hopes to make the Collection more accessible to a wider age-range.

We really look forward to working with him. Welcome to the team James!
