Many unexpected treats amongst the Gansboroughs - a wonderful little Paul Klee, with a touching history, two Peter Lanyons, a Chagall and a new Grayson Perry self-portrait which was fascinating.

Had visited several years ago and enjoyed it. Came especially to see ' Modern Artists in Print ' but visited whole gallery. Very well organised and presentation good, I wish it was nearer to my home I would visit often ! A nice retreat from the bustle of the city.

An unexpected pleasure, some beautiful work in a lovely gallery with a pleasant and informative curator. I could happily have run off with the painting of Pilu, the little terrier, spent a very enjoyable hour here, they have some truly wonderful pieces.

What a nice local gallery this is! I saw a wonderful set of Lithographs, a touring collection and the standing collection (Which has more of a relation to Bath itself. There's a stunning but small collection of works from all ages and general interests. they seem to have a very keen eye for getting in good touring collection too. I... More

We went here to see the modern artists exhibition, it was £3.50 per person. The exhibition was interesting but we also enjoyed seeing the other art, which you can see for free (there is a collection jar should you wish to donate). It was nice and peaceful and a good way to spend an hour or so if in Bath.

i absolutely love this art gallery. it feels so medievals i didn't want to leave. one of the part caught my boyfriend and i our attention was one of the letter written by a knight in the late century. the whole ambience was amazing and the cafe we had after exploring was also really subtle and great.

Not a big gallery but all well laid out and with space and time to study. As others have said, it makes a pleasant break from the sun, crowds or rain. The building itself is worth, the main gallery on the first floor particularly so. The building was paid for by "The Ladies of Bath"(the genteel sort). Staff very knowledgably... More

Beautiful upper gallery and some lovely paintings. My two favorites are 'The bride of death' and 'The Watersplash', a painting of some cute ducks. Recommended!

A pleasant break from walking round the city was found at this gallery. As an enthusiastic amateur artist I found work by Gainsborough, Sickert and other artists very inspiring. I was sorry to have missed the Exhibition by the Bath Society of Artists but perhaps be lucky enough to see it in future years.
