Walsall Art Gallery

 

The New Art Gallery with an enviable retail park and the Wharf 10 café-bar over-looking the canal was opened by Her Majesty the Queen on 16th February 2000. It is an exciting and architecturally outstanding multimillion-pound landmark housing the prestigious Garman Ryan collection as well as works by artists as diverse as William Blake, Van Gogh and Picasso. A variety of other displays can be seen in particular work by the sculptor Sir Jacob Epstein.

There is a complete floor dedicated to contemporary and historic art. The New Art Gallery built by the architects Caruso St John at a cost of £21 million, is keen to provide an all-round experience with something to suit the entire family comprising activities for children, a roof top restaurant, art library, and gift shop, exhibitions and conferencing facilities.
