Exhibitions at Kirkby Gallery


Kirkby Gallery and Prescot Museum will close temporarily from Friday 20 March 2020 until further notice.

This is to support the Government's advice around 'social distancing' in an attempt to help stop the spread of Coronavirus. The closure will help ensure that essential council services can continue, whilst also making sure that resources can be diverted to support vulnerable residents. Online content remains available on the Prescot Museum website and Knowsley Galleries and Museums on Facebook.

Kirkby Gallery (free admittance) is one of the best contemporary art galleries in Merseyside and the North West of England. The gallery presents a broad and ambitious programme of exhibitions, which draws upon collections from the Arts Council Collection, Hayward Touring, National Trust and multiple regional partner and galleries. Knowsley’s Annual Open Exhibitions, schools, and community arts projects are additionally core to much of what the gallery offers also, along with a varied offer of art courses. Knowsley Council also works in partnership with other arts agencies to deliver exhibitions such as Liverpool Biennial and pan-Merseyside projects, as part of the city region.
