Welsh Visual Arts – The Best of 2018

Art lovers have been spoiled this year with what has been on offer at the galleries across Wales, and it has not been a easy task for the writers at Wales Arts Review to pick the top ten visual arts exhibitions of 2018. The breadth of work shows just what a strong year it has been, but these ten were way we believed marked the highpoints.
