Colour and Senses Drop-in art activities in the Gallery Café
Come and use our materials and create something to take away in response to the themes of the exhibition. You are invited to explore colour and texture, to create a collage, a card, or a keyring to take home with you.

Static exhibition by Fiona Curran
The artist has transformed the gallery with colour, site-specific paintings and layered textile works to explore impacts of screen-based technologies on our sensory engagement with the world. Join the Curator’s Tour to hear more about the themes and ideas behind the exhibition.

Sculpture Walk
Grab a Sculpture Map from the gallery desk and walk around the campus to explore the outdoor sculptures for yourself. Or join the Guided Sculpture Walk where our staff will take you on a walk (approx. 20 minutes) to provide further details about the sculptures that form part of the University’s Art Collection.

The Café will be open for delicious vegan refreshments.

Children must be accompanied by adults.

Booking is encouraged on our website but not essential so that we can keep an eye on numbers– please feel free to drop-in anytime!

Parking is FREE on Saturdays.
