The Exhibition Gallery at Tullie House Museum is one of the biggest and most attractive contemporary galleries in the region.
Since opening, the gallery has established itself as one of the best spaces of its kind in the region and its strategic importance is recognised by all the major funding agencies. The gallery’s programme is central within an increasingly vigorous visual arts sector in Carlisle, including the University of Cumbria, studio groups and artist-run gallery spaces and initiatives across the city.
We feel a particular commitment to local communities - not only to present work which will appeal to a broad spectrum of taste and expectation, but also to serve local audiences well by encouraging an appreciation and awareness of a great variety of material which fully reflects the quality and diversity of contemporary visual arts practice, nationally and internationally.
By 'visual arts' we mean a comprehensive range of work in many different media - painting, sculpture/installation, film and photography, the applied arts, live art, and art which uses a variety of electronic media to exploit and embrace the potential of new technology.
Our current exhibition is:
Saturday 13 October 2018 - Sunday 27 January 2019
