Welcome to the Mercer Art Gallery, Harrogate
The Mercer Art Gallery is one of Yorkshire's most exciting galleries. You never know quite what to expect when you go through the door… great Victorian paintings from the Harrogate collection by famous names such as Atkinson Grimshaw and William Powell Frith or challenging contemporary art.
Our visitors love the Mercer Art Gallery for all sorts of reasons… it shows all kinds of art, it's not too big and there are plenty of places to sit down; it can be an oasis of calm, a place for reflection and contemplation, or an arena for excitement. You can enjoy the illuminating texts that we write about the art on show or you can sit down and browse through the books we have published about our collections. You can buy art at the Mercer and you will love our gallery shop with specially commissioned work from North Yorkshire artists.
The Gallery will be closed Monday 5 June to Friday 16 June as we prepare for the Harrogate Open exhibition
Harrogate Open 2017 at the Mercer Art Gallery - 17 June to 3 September 2017
Artists from the Harrogate district are invited to submit work to the Harrogate Open Exhibition 2017
