Happy holidays

The University Gallery and Watt Space Gallery will be closed from 1 December 2018 and will reopen on 6 February 2019.

We would like to thank all of the artists, volunteers and visitors to the galleries for contributing to and participating in our programs over the course of 2018. We hope you will join us in 2019 for an exciting program of exhibitions and events. We look forward to welcoming you at the gallery soon and wish you a relaxing and enjoyable holiday season.


The University Gallery presents curated exhibitions and touring shows that facilitate an awareness of contemporary art, artists, communities and disciplines. We also support and promote local and emerging artists through our exhibition program and present research exhibitions by our postgraduate candidates at the University of Newcastle.

We value community engagement and welcome the public to engage with our many exhibition openings and public programs throughout the year. See sign up tab to your right for event updates.
