UH Galleries at The Museum of St Albans   

 The University of Hertfordshire Galleries’ space at the Museum of St Albans is located in the first room on the right as you enter the museum. UH Galleries holds five exhibitions per year in this space, including the annual Hertfordshire Open Exhibition.

UH Galleries are among the most innovative contemporary art spaces in the UK, and have been responsible for a programme of internationally successful and critically acclaimed exhibitions. With two dynamic galleries – one within the Museum of St Albans and the other, the Art and Design Gallery, located on the University’s College Lane campus in Hatfield – we present international contemporary art to the local community and wider audiences, in both traditional and challenging ways.

 Our Aims

UH Galleries aim 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.

Working with the Local Community: Eastern Approaches

Eastern Approaches has marked itself out over the last eleven years as the definitive annual showcase for local artistic talent and last year over one hundred artists from across the Eastern Region submitted work. Taking place during the month of December at the Museum of St Albans, this exhibition provides local artists with a valuable opportunity to display their work. The first prize of a solo exhibition with UH Galleries, as well as other substantial prizes, represents our investment in the artistic life of the Eastern Region's wider artistic community.
