Planning a visit
Welcome to the Graves Gallery
The Graves Gallery is the home of Sheffield’s visual art collection. Situated above the Central Library, away from the noise and traffic of the city centre, the Gallery is a peaceful haven for visitors to enjoy the city’s art and a programme of temporary exhibitions.
Famous names on show at the Graves include Turner and Sisley, while more recent artists include Damien Hirst, Bridget Riley, Sam Taylor-Wood, and Marc Quinn. Local heroes include George Fullard, Derrick Greaves and Stanley Royle.
***Please note: Galleries VI & VII are currently closed for essential maintenance to the building's heating system.
The entire Graves Gallery will be closed 2 - 12 June while the final phase of repairs take place.
We’re sorry you aren’t able to see these displays during this time, we look forward to welcoming you when the gallery reopens.***
