Recent Acquisitions Part 1 People and Artistic Connections

Throughout this year we are displaying some of the newest acquisitions to our Permanent Collection, in the lead up to its   125th anniversary in 2017.

Our collecting policy prioritises include works related to the themes in The Garman Ryan Collection, or by artists who have been part of our temporary exhibitions programmes.


The New Art Gallery Walsall owns jointly with Birmingham Museusms Trust a collection of international art on the theme of the Metropolis, which was generously supported by The Art Fund, and Landscape is a central theme of our renowned Garman Ryan Collection.


This exhibition showcases works which compliment these themes and have been collected by the Gallery over the last few years by Willie Doherty, John Newling, David Rowan, Paul Seawright and Emma Stibbon.
