Galleries – Bath Spa University

Our galleries provide a showcase for Art and Design at Bath Spa, and a space to immerse yourself in the work of talented artists and makers.

We currently have three Gallery spaces, two at Locksbrook (the Michael Pennie Gallery, and The Street) and the other at Sion Hill. Throughout the year we have a full programme of exhibitions and events from students, staff and external exhibitions.

The Gallery Coordinator will help you with organising an exhibition if a proposal is submitted, and will assist with the installation and give curatorial advice. They are also there to help discuss interesting display methods for your work.

As a student you can choose to sell your work through us. During end of year degree shows, for example, you have the option to make your work available to buy through our gallery services.

As a Bath Spa student of any course, once you’ve booked and attended your safety induction, you can use any of our workshop facilities.

We work closely with your course tutors to ensure that you’re inducted to the workshops that are relevant to your course, and this process is ongoing and flexible – you’re encouraged to attend refresher inductions as needed so that you’re always working safely with the wealth of techniques, facilities and technical support available.

Special events

Locksbrook Grand Opening and alumni exhibition

Our Locksbrook campus was officially opened on 4 March 2020 with a series of talks, workshops and exhibitions rounding out the celebrations.

The exhibition - including a piece by Turner Prize winnter Sir Howard Hodgkin - showcased the talent of the University’s art and design alumni, with painters, illustrators, designers and sculptors displaying work across the Sion Hill and Michael Pennie galleries.
