Southampton City Art Gallery is celebrating 80 years this April

 

The Gallery was opened by the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester on 26 April 1939 and 80 years on, guided by a rigorous collecting policy stipulating guidance from the National Gallery and now Tate, the collection holds over 5,000 works and is internationally renowned.

 

View the new exhibitions which showcase the highlights of an already significant collection that was acquired ahead of the Gallery’s opening and, for the first time since 1939, we present paintings which featured in the original exhibition.

 

Alongside this is a display of contemporary work from the collection by artists who have won, or been shortlisted for, the Turner Prize, which highlights the Gallery’s successful history of purchasing artists on the cusp of their journey to becoming household names.

 

FREE to visit. See more details on our website.
