Built in 1930, Ipswich Art Gallery is the former premises of Ipswich School of Art and adjoins the Ipswich Museum.
Since its acquisition in 2011, the building has been developed as a gallery and temporary exhibitions space, showing a range of artforms, museum collections and more. The Art Gallery’s link with the Ipswich Museum collections provides direct inspiration for the work of both students and the staff.
The Art Gallery shows exhibitions of international importance and provides a unique stage for local artists to show their work and to showcase the region’s artistic talents. It brings art and history to life through a varied events programme, including art and craft workshops, tours, talks, quizzes and much more.
Ipswich Art Gallery is currently closed as part of the redevelopment of Ipswich Museum and will reopen in 2025. You can read more about the project here: https://www.ipswichmuseum.co.uk/
