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 Gallery’s exhibition programme is shaped by the curriculum, with focus given to art, design and digital media, reflecting the rich and diverse cultural community of the college and the city. The Gallery specialises in supporting artists at various stages of their careers, enabling them to produce new exhibitions, and offering exciting opportunities to enhance their professional practice in fresh and interesting ways.

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

We have showcased the work of artists including Matt Stokes, (as part of We The People Are The Work), Abigail Reynolds, Brian Griffiths (as part of The British Art Show 7) Craig Fisher, BOUDICCA, Martin Parr, Albert Irvin, Timorous Beasties, Catherine Yass (as part of Walk On) and many more.
