University Gallery

The University Gallery reopened in Summer 2018 in a new home in Sandyford Building on City Campus. The space comprises Gallery North and the University Art Collection. 

  • Gallery North is an experimental space used to showcase contemporary arts through a regular programme of practice research events and exhibitions.
  • The University Collection is made up of around 3,000 paintings, drawings and sculptures as well as the archives of artists such as Norman Cornish and Charles Simms, which are used to support teaching, learning and research.

The refurbishment of the gallery spaces is the start of an exciting new period with a focus on widening participation and external engagement for the University and for Newcastle as a city.
