After a short hiatus, we're super excited to be reopening the Gallery at 10am on Saturday 14 September (and every day after that, except Christmas Day)!

We'll be celebrating all that weekend with music, drawing and giveaways; come and get your face painted, meet our Director Karen Quinlan and take a free highlights tour (in whatever order you like).

We'll also have a mix of your old favourites and new hangs ready for your gazing pleasure – including the exhibitions, Primed and The Look.

It's been a while, so remember that we're open from 10am to 5pm daily. If you can't make it to the Gallery, don't stress, we're still running our virtual tours. Hope to see you all soon!
