New Adelphi Exhibition Gallery opened in 2016, providing a permanent space to showcase the University of Salford Art Collection within the New Adelphi School of Arts and Media. We curate between 3-5 exhibitions per year, often in collaboration with students, graduates, staff, our archives & library collection, and other museums, galleries and independent projects.
As well as a space for teaching, learning, engagement and enjoyment, the Gallery provides a haven away from the busy hustle and bustle of daily campus life.
Open Monday – Friday 10am – 4pm during exhibitions. Closed bank holidays. Admission is free.
COVID-19: The gallery is closed until further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Please check back soon for updates.
