Black Water Art is a metaphor for the conceptual transition from one space to another.

One piece per artist will be accepted in any medium (spatial and technical restrictions may apply). Works are restricted to a maximum of 36 x 36 inches (or 36 x 36 x 36 inches for 3-dimensional pieces). Shipping costs are the responsibility of the artist and all works must be submitted ready to install along with the completed submission form and any applicable fees. Sales will be facilitated by the White Water Gallery based upon the prices set by the artists themselves. Monies received by the Gallery from the sale of artwork will be sent to the artist by cheque (please specify payee if different from the name on the submission form).
Members of the White Water Gallery submit their piece for FREE. Non-members must pay a $30 submission fee.

Dylan Thomas International Awards for Glass - May 1st
posted: November 27, 2013
Central to the University’s celebration of the centenary of Dylan’s birth, we are delighted to announce the inaugural UWTSD Dylan Thomas Awards celebrating excellence within the arts at a local, national and international level.
The new transformed University has a unique relationship with Wales’ greatest English language poet both in the geographical location of its campuses – in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Swansea – and also in its commitment to the performing and creative arts. The University’s celebrations will encompass a wide range of events using the poetry, plays and life of Dylan Thomas as a catalyst for new artistic and cultural work at home and abroad.
To encourage excellence in the areas of glass and poetry, the University is launching two international competitions for glass artists and poets.
The Dylan Thomas International Glass Award
Swansea has a long history in the field of glass. The course founder, Howard Martin was invited in 1935 to run an evening class at what was then Swansea Art College, two years after he and his cousin Hubert Thomas had successfully set up the firm of Martin & Thomas. After the war the course developed into the Architectural Stained Glass Department and has prospered ever since. The University’s Swansea School of Glass has an international reputation and practitioners from around the world are invited to participate in this competition.
HARMONY : A creative brief
Glass artists worldwide are invited to submit designs for a 40cm x 40cm decorative or stained glass panel in response to the word "Harmony". During May 2014, a judging panel will shortlist works to be exhibited at Swansea Waterfront Museum in July 2014. At the opening a prize award of £1000 will be presented to the winner with the panel being exhibited for the next year at the Dylan Thomas Centre and then becoming part of the Swansea School of Glass Collection.
All of the work exhibited will form part of a centenary catalogue with a view to a subsequent publication celebrating both of these international awards. It is anticipated that the winning artist and poet will be invited to be commissioned by the University for a combined piece of work as an on-going tribute to Dylan Thomas.
We welcome applications from anyone working in glass from throughout the world. We hope to tour the exhibition to other venues and details will be posted on the website as when we can confirm sites.
A detailed brief for the Glass Award outlining all the stages and dates for work to be submitted can be found here
