York Art Gallery

City Centre

York Art Gallery is undergoing a major redevelopment and will reopen for Easter 2015.

We aim to increase the gallery's display space by 60 per cent by creating a new first-floor gallery in the space above the Main Gallery on the ground floor, and expanding into the rooms next door to the gallery, formerly occupied by the City Archives.

The 'new' gallery will then have three exhibition galleries on the ground floor, capable of hosting major national and international exhibitions, and four on the first floor, two of which will showcase our internationally significant collection of British Studio Ceramics.

A new entrance to the gallery will be created at the back of the building, leading down from the new first floor gallery into a newly-opened up section of the Museum Gardens, which will be developed into a public green space for fun and outdoor learning.
