Galleries

Inspire Library Art Galleries offer professional, affordable exhibition spaces and the opportunity for residents and visitors to view great art within local communities.

The galleries promote an exciting year round programme of exhibitions by amateur, semi-professional and professional artists. 

All exhibitions are free to attend. There is always something new for visitors to enjoy. 

While Covid restrictions are in place we are controlling visitor numbers in the gallery spaces and operating additional guidance for hirers and Arnold gallery is currently not available for new bookings.

Full information on each space can be found on the links below.

Smaller libraries also have gallery space you can apply to exhibit in free of charge.

Gallery opening times match library opening times.

Artists can apply to exhibit their work by contacting the library directly. All galleries are suitable for wall-based works. Small installations and sculpture collections will also be considered.
