  • This exhibition brings together work from the collections of Glynn Vivian Art Gallery and the Dylan Thomas Centre, to illuminate the relationships and dialogues between poetry and art. Throughout his life, Dylan sought opportunities to work with others and thrived in the artistic communities of Swansea in the 1930s, when the Kardomah Café’s ‘coffee drinkers – poets, painters, and musicians in their beginnings’ included Vernon Watkins, Alfred Janes and Dan Jones.
