Independent Contemporary Fine Art, Craft and Design Gallery

Explore the Gallery

We showcase, support and sell the work of artists and makers from Yorkshire and beyond; investing in and developing the next generation of artists, makers and curators through a rolling programme of exhibitions, events, workshops and artists’ studios.

Sunny Bank Mills Gallery is housed in the light and airy former cloth warehouse. Our exhibitions change every two months and include traditional art forms such as painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics and textiles alongside more contemporary media such as film. We are particularly proud of our annual Ones to Watch exhibition supporting emerging artists studying in or from Yorkshire.

2023 celebrated 10 years of arts and culture at Sunny Bank Mills.

Entry to the Gallery is always free. You are welcome to bring a book or some work (we have free wifi!) and spend some time soaking up the atmosphere and relaxing with a pot of tea and slice of homemade cake.

Regular Gallery opening times: Tuesday to Saturday 10-4pm, Sunday 12-4pm. Closed on Mondays.
