The Mercer Art Gallery is home to Harrogate district's fine art collection which consists of some 2000 works of art, mainly from the 19th and 20th centuries.
Our extremely popular major exhibition for 2019, William Powell Frith:The People's Painter runs until Sunday 29 September. Frith's great panoramas of Victorian life made him the most popular painter of his time. Marking the bicentenary of his birth at Aldfield near Harrogate, the exhibiton draws together over 70 of his paintings and prints.
The gallery will then be closed from Monday 30 September to Friday October 11, re-opening on Saturday 12 October for our bi-annual Open Exhibition. The Open showcases the work of local artists, all of which is available to purchase.
The Harogate district fine art collection includes works by William Powell Frith, Atkinson Grimshaw, Sir Edward Burne-Jones, Dame Laura Knight, Alan Davie and many more. A changing exhibition programme for the main and North galleries ranges from national touring exhibitions of painting, photography, sculpture and crafts to exhibitions from the permanent collections to displays by local artists.
The whole Mercer Art Gallery collection is not however on permanent display.
Paintings, prints and drawings from it are featured in our lively and diverse exhibition programme throughout the year.
