Cooper Art Gallery

A uniquely creative artistic space

Showcasing fascinating stories

A sketched impression of the creative exhibition space at Cooper Art Gallery, BarnsleyTo celebrate the centenary anniversary of the opening of the Cooper Art Gallery in Barnsley, PLB produced a Round 2 HLF bid and subsequently developed the design into a successful exhibition space. This showcased the fascinating stories behind the collections and transformed the visitor experience.

With an array of works from a wide range of artists, such as JMW Turner, Vanessa Bell and Roger Fry, the permanent collection is a platform for the themed exhibition, created to hang alongside an engaging programme of temporary exhibitions.

“I had no idea of the extent of the work to the building, which has changed the available exhibition space dramatically and provides the opportunity to have more of its own collection on display – as well as workspace for educational visits.”

“After last year’s refurbishment, the gallery is very pleasant to walk around. Child friendly, it gives a delightful history of the gallery without being pompous and inaccessible.”
