When you sign up to use our online resources, you also get added to the mailing list for the Warp monthly e-bulletin The bulletin includes news about warp and its activities as well as helping to promote Warp User projects and listing some Wales-based recommendations for exhibitions and opportunities.
If you have a visual arts project or opportunity that you think other Warp Users would be interested in, you can send the information to us and we will try to include it in the next bulletin.
When submitting your information please remember:
The bulletin goes out on the first Saturday of every month. Please send the details by the last week of the month before your project takes place. E.G. if your project is taking place between 12th June and 19th June send us the information by 25th May.
Generally speaking, we give priority to news and info by Warp Users and contemporary visual arts projects taking place in Wales.
When sending details please include dates, opening times, project contact details and a link to further information. Please also send an image at 72 resolution / 800 width.
The above advice will help us to include your information, but please don't be offended if your project doesn't make it into the bulletin. There may be a number of reasons why it doesn't make it into that month's issue including space, range of project type and geographical mix.
You can give us a call or drop us a line if you have any queries about submitting information for the bulletin: firstname.lastname@example.org
The WARP resource is intended to offer support and advice for artists across Wales remotely via a number of advice sheets, archive of MP3's recorded at past WARP talks/events and a directory of links and recommended services.
To use these resources you'll need to become a registered WARP user by signing up at the top of this page. If you have had any difficulties with accessing the resources e-mail us at email@example.com and we'll do our best to sort you out.
If you're looking for information on galleries in Wales or perhaps other artist run projects across the United Kingdom, you'll find links to their websites here. We also have a directory service that includes recommended services. You will find the directory useful to find services for your art practice such as printers in the Cardiff area, bronze foundries in Mid Wales, or framers (that's framer not farmer) in the West. All entries for recommended services in the directory are tried and tested by WARP (by which we mean the greater WARP community, ie you) so if there are any people/services that you have used and would like to nominate for this list please do let us know. Likewise if you have had a bad experience with a company in the directory it would be good for us to know to share this information with others.
In addition to this online resource we also have a dedicated Resource Area/Reading Room at the gallery. This space is open to all artists as a drop in facility where as well as having a nice cup of tea, you can make use of the following equipment-
* Dedicated Apple I Mac with Full Creative Suite 4 software, Including:-
