> UH Galleries
Critically acclaimed University of Hertfordshire Galleries (UH Galleries) are among the most innovative contemporary art spaces in the UK. With two dynamic galleries - the Margaret Harvey Gallery in St Albans, and the Art and Design Gallery in Hatfield – UH Galleries presents international contemporary art to the community and wider audiences, in traditional and sometimes challenging ways.
We exhibit established artists, as well as showcasing more experimental work, collaborating with other major cultural institutions across Europe. Our vibrant spaces target not only students and staff, but members of the local community. We stage up to fourteen exhibitions and commissioned projects a year across the two galleries. We offer, and continue to develop, an exciting range of hugely successful touring exhibitions. We are funded by the University of Hertfordshire, with support from Arts Council England East and other organisations such as the Henry Moore Foundation. We produce a wide range of art publications which are available through the Galleries’ office.
UH Galleries aims to offer artists and makers from all disciplines in the early stages of their professional careers significant exhibition and associated publishing opportunities. We hope to provide local audiences with the opportunity to engage with contemporary art and discover an array of surprises and perhaps hidden interests in our varied and vibrant programme of exhibitions.
We hold an annual Open Exhibition where local artists display their work during the month of December at the Margaret Harvey Gallery
