OPUS – Foundation Art & Design, Swansea, staff group

In 2007 the staff of the Art and Designer course at Swansea decided to exhibit together for the first time. We took the name Opus from our first exhibition, Nascent Opus, and used it for some years as a way to present ourselves to the world as active practitioners in dialogue about our teaching and making practices. The changing staff group continues to exhibit together.

Overall we attempt to balance our work as artists and teachers, but here within the Faculty of Art and Design we are above all committed to offering our students our knowledge and understanding of the creative process.
