Smallish gallery, well laid out. Named artist exhibition in a couple of rooms with one or two small side rooms featuring other artists. I think your visit will depend on what artist(s) they are showing at the time...don't come expecting Henry Moore pieces. Free entry,...More

I always call in here, whenever I am in Leeds. More often than not, the art on show is rather pretentious, but to be fair, I enjoyed the current exhibition as it made me smile!
