We are overjoyed that from 18th May we are able to re-open the gallery and welcome you back in to the building.  Initially, our opening hours will be Tuesday – Friday 10.30am – 4.30pm with last admission at 4pm. This may be subject to change so do continue to check the website for any updates.

We have taken various measures to ensure your safety during your visit including; an increased cleaning regime; sanitiser points around the gallery and protective screens at our reception and retail areas; visitor numbers will be limited so at busy times it may be necessary to queue but we will do our best to keep this to a minimum.  We have also installed touch free automatic doors in the reception area, to keep you safe and make it easier to enter the building.

We look forward to welcoming you back.

If you aren’t able to visit just yet there are a few new ways to explore the gallery and our lovely paintings.
