The Gallery is committed to promoting a contemporary visual arts programme with a balanced focus on promoting new work and supporting the development of artists while simultaneously affirming and challenging the public’s appreciation and understanding of contemporary and innovative approaches to the visual arts. The Gallery aims to develop projects in collaboration with artists, and is itself a site of artistic production with an associated dedicated residential artists’ studio. The Gallery is committed to engaging with the community, enhancing audience’s cultural and artistic experiences in different spaces (both interior and exterior) and through a variety of media. Integral to all aspects of the Gallery programme is an extensive offering of educational opportunities for all ages through policies and programmes which are excellent, innovative and inclusive.
