City Gallery

City Gallery

City Gallery is located in Peterborough Museum on Priestgate, and is home to an impressive variety of art dating from the 1600s right through to the present day.

Portraits and landscapes selected from the permanent art collection are usually on display around the museum, and there’s a rolling programme of work by local, national and international artists in the Gallery.

A real life – Life Drawing classes from 7- 9pm
Join the City Gallery on a Thursday evening to take part in life drawing sessions designed for students studying art that want to supplement their portfolios, to professional and amateur artists that want to draw from a primary source. Each session is led by an experienced tutor, with different models each week.

A Survival kit – Half term and holiday activities
The City Gallery would like to hear from artists that would like to propose week long holiday activities to take place in the gallery over school half terms and holidays. The activity must be open to all.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please send an up to date CV and an outline of the activity you would like to deliver. Please note an artist fee is available, along with a small budget for materials.
