Garman Ryan Collections Galleries

The gallery space houses the beautiful and eclectic collection of artworks gifted to Walsall in 1973 by Lady Kathleen Garman. The main hall on Floor 1 is clad in Douglas Fir and has a homely feel and is a great space to use the collection as a backdrop for a lecture, talk, network event or presentation. The Garman Ryan galleries are a series of rooms spread over 2 floors, the main hall is the biggest space and most suited to events, but delegates are encouraged to explore the rest of the collection. Talks are available for a small charge with a Gallery curator to add an extra element to your event. The Garman Ryan main hall capacity is 75 seated.
