Pioneered by Angela Flowers in 1983 Artist of the Day, now in its thirtieth year, is an annual event whereby ten selectors choose an artist to each hold a one day solo exhibition over the course of two weeks.
Gwennan graduated from BA (Hons) Fine Art: Painting at Wimbledon in 2011 and has since been busy continuing her practice in the studio and exhibiting her work. Gwennan talks about Painting in this great interview with ‘Studio Critical’.
