Established in 1977 as a teaching gallery and the University’s link between town and gown, the University Gallery presents exhibitions by artists of national and international reputation as well as less established, but promising artists. The gallery specialises in contemporary painting, sculpture, printmaking and photography, as well as thematic exhibitions initiated in association with major museums and galleries internationally. Acquisitions to the Permanent Collection reflect the exhibition programme’s strong regional, national and international links. Exhibitions are supported by scholarly publications, lectures and study days for adults and art classes for children. The Gallery also provides training and work experience for graduate and postgraduate students.
