The Gallery Oldham


  • Gallery Oldham is a free-to-view public art gallery situated in the Cultural Quarter of central Oldham, in Greater Manchester
  • The art gallery, designed by architects Pringle Richards Sharratt and opened in 2002, is a state-of-the-art building which has brought about an integration of the once separate local museum and gallery services
  • Incorporating Oldham's extensive art, social and natural history collections alongside touring work, newly commissioned and contemporary art, the gallery also holds the civic collection of Oldham and much of the wider Metropolitan Borough of Oldham. Past exhibits have included works by Picasso and Lowry


  • Gallery Oldham was opened in February 2002, three years after designers were first appointed to draw up plans in 1999


The gallery


  • Positioned between residential areas and the town centre, the Gallery has engaged the local community and regularly combines international art with work produced by local communities
  • With visitors to the gallery steadily increasing to approximately 3000 a month, the Gallery has reached out to different communities
  • In addition to the benefits seen to the local community, the building itself has won awards from the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Civic Trust
