University of Hertfordshire Arts, Art & Design Gallery
Hatfield, United Kingdom
University of Hertfordshire Arts (UHArts) brings high quality arts to students, staff and local communities. Working with emerging and established artists across all media, UHArts delivers a programme of exhibitions, projects and residencies in the Art & Design Gallery in Hatfield and at St Albans Museum + Gallery.
Based in Hatfield, UHArts (previously known as UH Galleries) is among the most innovative contemporary art spaces in the UK, presenting international contemporary art to the community and wider audiences, in traditional and sometimes challenging ways.
The Art & Design Gallery was constructed in 1998, as part of the University’s School of Creative Arts. It is a large atrium space and also functions as the school’s entrance. With its vast glass-fronted wall and six-metre-high ceilings, the light-diffused gallery offers 100 metres of hanging space and 250 square metres of floor space. It works particularly well for site-specific and site-sensitive installations.
Since June 2018, UHArts in partnership with the St Albans Museum + Gallery, has contributed a vibrant visual arts programme across varied spaces within the St Albans Town Hall building – engaging broadly with artists, audiences and the site.
