Opened in 1900, the Victoria Art Gallery boasts an outstanding collection of paintings, sculptures and decorative arts. The gallery is located in the centre of Bath, near the famous Pulteney Bridge. Entry to the permanent exhibitions is free.

You’ll see more than 1,500 artworks, including many by artists who have lived and worked in the Bath area, such as Thomas Gainsborough and Walter Sickert. The work on show spans the 15th century to the present day.

In the 18th century Bath was an important centre for portrait painting, and in the 20th century it again became famous thanks to the innovative works being produced by artists at the renowned Bath Academy of Art at Corsham Court.

Alongside the permanent collections, the Victoria Art Gallery also hosts an exciting programme of temporary exhibitions and events throughout the year. Highlights for 2015 include:
• Bath Society of Artists – The annual summer exhibition features 300 dazzling paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures, which are all for sale. 16 May-27 June 2015

• Jane Austen’s Bath – Discover the Bath of Jane Austen’s time through some of Victoria Art Gallery’s best watercolours and prints. 4 July-4 October 2015

• Howard Jeffs: Landscape into Print – Prints inspired by landscapes in England and France, from etchings of waterfalls to woodcuts of rivers. 4 July-16 August 2015

• Portraits and Identity – Admire portrait prints by artists as diverse as Hogarth, Dürer and Grayson Perry. 20 August-4 October 2015

• Kurt Jackson: Place – Jackson's work celebrates the environment and embraces a wide range of materials. For this exhibition, he will work with an eclectic mix of contemporary writers. 10 October 2015-3 January 2016
