Gallery to be a host for the British Art Show 9

In less than a decade, our artist-led space has grown to become the largest independent gallery in South West England, producing and showing the best international contemporary art. We believe art has a transformative power and shapes the cultural identity of our city. Next year we are privileged to be a host gallery for when the British Art Show 9 arrives in Plymouth.
