Originally established in 1998, TheGallery at Arts University Bournemouth offers a unique space in the South West and South East for the Arts including design, media and performance. 

TheGallery showcases work from contemporary artists and designers, including collections on loan from major galleries and museums, as well as individual exhibitions by some of today’s leading artists, photographers and designers. It also functions as a research and learning resource and is integrated into the teaching, learning, and research practice undertaken at the University. 

TheGallery also works in partnership with WestBeach, as an additional platform to showcase exhibitions, making the artworks accessible for all and encouraging further exploration of the exhibition programme.

TheGallery runs a number of artist talks, panel discussions, family days and events to support the exhibition programme.

Admission is free to TheGallery and all its exhibition events.
