New Art Gallery

The award winning The New Art Gallery Walsall gallery designed by Caruso St John opened in February 2000 in the heart of Walsall town centre.

Our renowned Garman Ryan Collection was gifted to the Borough in 1973 by Kathleen Garman, widow of the great 20th century sculptor Jacob Epstein. Kathleen was originally from nearby Wednesbury, and although she had spent much of her life in London, she wanted to give something back to the Black Country where she had grown up. The Collection includes 365 important works by celebrated artists including Jacob Epstein, Van Gogh, Monet, Constable, Turner, Picasso, Degas, Matisse and Lucian Freud, alongside a wide range of artworks from throughout the world.

Our changing exhibition programme focus on the very best in international contemporary art and our Artists’ Studio and Artist Development programmes support artists from across the region. Our education and events programme provides a broad cultural experience for everyone.
