We cultivate the pursuit of excellence in a marketplace environment, with ongoing support to emerging artists and makers, by exhibiting their work and through professional development activities. We promote the importance of the creative process for all communities through workshops, talks and outreach work. We are a charity.
The New Ashgate Gallery Trust is a not-for-profit charity specialising in the curation and promotion of affordable arts and craft. Established in 1959, for more than 60 years, we have supported emerging artists and encouraged participation and involvement in our community through free exhibitions, craft workshops and professional practice seminars.
Our team curates a programme of 25 annual exhibitions with some of the best artists working on painting, print, ceramics, jewellery, textiles, glass and wood.
We run an all-year programme of exhibitions and support artists through professional, business and audience development in the market place while raising aspirations. We deliver outreach and gallery workshops for diverse audiences.
Our opportunities for artists are posted online. Watch this space for information about exhibition calls for proposals and specialist events for artists.
