Gateway Galleries

Gateway Galleries hosts an ongoing programme of visual art and craft exhibitions at The Gateway.

Every year we attract approximately 200,000 visitors, and the constantly changing programme ensures that the visitor will always see something new and exciting. Each month exciting contemporary arts are featured in the three distinct display areas.

Exhibition opportunities at Gallery 3

Exhibitions at Gallery3 are selected by a submission process only. Unlike other art spaces in Shrewsbury, Gallery3 doesn't hire out its space, and exhibitions are by invitation only. If you're interested please send your proposal by mail to the address below:
