The Gallery at The Arc, Winchester is a stunning, government indemnity standard exhibition space which allows it to receive works and artefacts of international importance.

The Gallery has a programme of exceptional quality and varied temporary exhibitions which include our own curated exhibitions and works from national lenders such as Tate, British Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum to name a few.

Major exhibitions at the Gallery have included Turner and the Sun, the first exhibition to explore the artist’s relationship with the sun; The Mysterious Miss Austen, which brought together for the first – and in all likelihood, only – time, the six known portraits of the author and Gerald Scarfe: Stage and Screen, a close-up look at the prominent cartoonist’s work in film, opera and ballet design. The Gallery also draws on objects and art from the remarkable, internationally important collections cared for by Hampshire Cultural Trust.
