See a selection of stunning paintings and sculptures by internationally renowned artists such as L.S. Lowry and Henry Moore alongside work by significant artists. There's an innovative programme of temporary exhibitions and inspiring events and activities for all ages. Located in Huddersfield town centre, above the library, it couldn't be easier to visit.

Small but some interesting paintings from known and well known artists. The paintings were well displayed and labelled. Wish it could have opened a little earlier though. No cafe but a coffee machine.

A very wide range of fine art in a compact space. The local heritage library had extensive collection of information about Huddersfield readily available.

It's a small provincial art gallery, isn't it? I think it's fair to say you don't really expect too much from such places - there are some good and quite notable pieces in the small, permanent collection including a Moore and a Bacon. What's more...More

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your visit. Why don’t you visit one of our events? Some days at the art gallery are vibrant and loud with performances and other exciting events, others days are quiet and reflective.

This was an unplanned visit but we read that there are two Lowry paintings in the exhibition. There’s artwork from local artists which wasn’t really my thing. The Lowry paintings are magnificent. There’s a Henry Moore sculpture too. It’s worth a visit.

This is a beautiful building in the heart of Huddersfield Town Centre. Changing displays to make the appeal ongoing for people. Well kept building. A real asset to Huddersfield.

Other than the two LS Lowry paintings there was nothing of particular interest to us. The gallery is quite small, looks a bit tired, in need of some refurbishment....surprising in a town with such a big University.
