Newcastle Art Gallery will be temporarily closed to the public from Monday 9 May until 5:30pm Friday 27 May 2016.
In addition to installing a ‘whole of Gallery’ exhibition titled BLACK WHITE & RESTIVE, necessary internal building maintenance will be undertaken.
The building maintenance works on the ground floor require scaffolding and enclosures to be erected that impact on public safety. For these reasons the decision has been made to close the Gallery.
The council have issued a statement apologising for any inconvenience the temporary closure may cause.
During the closure period the Art Gallery will continue to engage with the public through an outdoor community art project held on the front lawn Tuesday-Sunday.
