Leeds Art Gallery reopened its doors in Autumn 2017 following an extensive refurbishment of the original Victorian roof and renovation of the Central Court. For the first time in a generation visitors can see the stunning glass ceiling that has been transformed into a new gallery.

Experience the light-filled spaces and discover stunning art.

Leeds Art Gallery offers you the chance to see work by some of the most important national and international artists all for free. It is home to one of the most significant collections of 20th century British art in the country and offers a changing programme of exhibitions and displays throughout the year.

A highlight of the new exhibitions and displays is a stunning new wall painting _Xanadu, _an Art Happens commission for the Victorian staircase by German abstract artist Lothar Götz. This vibrant new wall painting connects the upper and lower galleries and draws visitors to the new light-filled renovated galleries above.

Leeds Art Gallery is pleased to be part of the Yorkshire Sculpture Triangle celebrating the world’s greatest sculpture across four Yorkshire venues – visit www.ysculpture.co.uk for more information.

It also houses Artspace, a relaxed creative space with art materials and activities that explore themes inspired by current exhibitions; come along and draw, build, reflect and play. Visit in school holidays and meet the latest artist-in-residence.

Explore the galleries and temporary exhibitions, then take time out in the stunning Victorian Tiled Hall café, and visit the shop and café on the lower ground floor.
