About the Gallery

The Gallery at Plymouth College of Art features a high quality contemporary programme of exhibitions and events, which seeks to enrich teaching and learning at the college, whilst also welcoming a wider public audience to enjoy and debate contemporary arts.

The programme is shaped into seasons, with focus given to different discipline areas and modes of practice, reflecting the rich and diverse cultural community of the college.

The Gallery often works in partnership, contributing actively to strengthening and enhancing the offer of arts and culture in Plymouth.

Previous exhibiting artists and shows in the Gallery at Plymouth College of Art includes Albert Irvin, Martin Parr, BOUDICCA, the Jerwood Drawing Prize, Gareth Neal, Kit Poulson, Marie Toseland – and more.

You can see our ever-expanding archive of Gallery Shorts films – mini interview-led documentaries focusing on the artists exhibition in the Gallery – online here.
