Central Art Gallery – Tameside – Arts, Textiles, Sculpture, History & More

“A wonderful discovery.”


Central Art Gallery is a real gem. Located above the library on Old Street in Ashton-under-Lyne, these beautiful gallery spaces host a varied programme of temporary exhibitions and the permanent Rutherford Gallery. There is something to suit everyone’s taste with group and solo shows of artists from the region including paintings, sculpture, installation and textiles.

Central Art Gallery is also a great place to relax and take a break from the world. With lots of comfortable seating and relaxing music this is the perfect place to have a moment to yourself or a chat with a friend. Central Art Gallery runs a programme of adult art courses, a knit and natter knitting group and special events, for more information please contact us below or see our events calendar.

We welcome noise and mess in our galleries and this is a family friendly space. Drop by during the school holidays and make something to take home at our craft table.

Planning a Visit

Central Art Gallery is located upstairs within Central Library in the town centre of Ashton-under-Lyne, just outside of Manchester, accessible by car, train and bus. There are several car parks in Ashton located within a 5 minute walk of the gallery. There are two disabled parking spaces just outside the main entrance of the building.
