The Minitopian Gallery presents INCEPTION a FREE exhibition.
The Minitopian Gallery, Wales unique miniaturised art gallery, opens its first exhibition of 2018 at Swansea's pioneering Volcano Theatre. The Minitopian Art Gallery is a self-funded and student-run organisation which is currently located in Swansea. The fully-functioning miniaturised art gallery founded by Trinity Saint David student, Steffan Hadley, in 2016 with a mission to change perspectives. The gallery is dedicated to Elizabeth Mayberry, his Grandmother, who inspired him to never give up on his ambitions. Steffan takes original works and shrinks them down to 1:24 scale. However, artists who use sculptures are required to make mini versions of the original pieces themselves if they wish to exhibit in the gallery. He believes that the purpose of scaling the art work down is to change the observer's viewpoint and give the audience an entirely different perspective of the artists' work. Unusually, whilst at Volcano, all of the pieces in the Minitopian Gallery will also be exhibited in their original, full size in Volcano's Gallery space. There will be an open evening from 5.30pm till 8pm on 12th January. Everyone is welcome!
