The Civic

We are really looking forward to welcoming you back to the Gallery. Prior to your visit, we want to make you aware of a few changes that we have introduced, including the following:

  • Please wear a face covering when inside the building unless you are medically exempt
  • Please make use of the sanitiser points available, especially on entry and exit 
  • Please maintain a two-metre distance from others in the building that are not in your party

We have also introduced advanced booking to our Gallery spaces to help manage visitor numbers and to maintain social distancing.

All visitors must book their tickets in advance either through our website or contacting our Box Office team. There will be limited access for walk in customers if there is availability. Your booking enables you to visit both exhibitions in the main gallery and panorama spaces.

You can visit our Covid 19 page, for more details of the changes we have made to keep everyone safe. 

We hope you enjoy your visit!

Northern Town

9 October 2020 – 12 December 2020

Location: Gallery 

A collaboration between artists Patrick Murphy and Anton Want, the Northern Town exhibition visually explores the realities and cultural mythologies of life in the hinterland of the North over the last 50 years, depicting how the region may have been represented and defined in writing, film and TV during the 20th century.

Michael Steer

9 October 2020 – 12 December 2020

Location: Gallery – Panorama

Michael Steer is a local painter who was born and raised in Barnsley. He studied Interdisciplinary Art and Design at University Campus Barnsley and currently works out of his studio in Wombwell.

Michael’s work concerns the ambiguity and connotations of language, exploring how statements can have profoundly different interpretations depending on the person viewing them. His paintings invite the audience to consider the hidden depths of simple statements and discover the inherent poetry of words.
