Quay Arts is one of the largest dedicated exhibition spaces on the Island and one of the leading galleries on the South Coast.

Our rolling exhibitions programme is dedicated to supporting the work of emerging, established and internationally significant artists, alongside work by children and young people across a wide range of genres.

Our galleries, spread across two floors, are always FREE to enter to support our core aim to ‘foster and develop artistic knowledge and understanding for the education of the public’. 

The West Gallery is the largest space, at 165 sqm (72 linear m) and is situated on the first floor along with the Clayden Gallery. The café display space is on the ground floor. All exhibition spaces are wheelchair accessible with a lift to the first floor.

Even a little money can make a big difference at Quay Arts

Did you realise that when you buy a cup of freshly ground barista coffee in our Café Bar, you are helping to support the cultural life of the Isle of Wight?

However, the generosity of our supporters goes beyond sales of food, drink and theatre tickets. Gifts of money, time, and even specific items make a huge difference to the amount of work we can do. Together, we can continue to enrich the lives of islanders and visitors with our fantastic programme of events.
