Atkinson Gallery

Lucy Delano, '400 Eggs' - MA and Other Postgraduates Exhibition 2017 

In the interest of health of our communities, pupils and staff, the Atkinson Gallery shall be closed while we closely monitor the development of COVID 19.

From April 1 2020 the Atkinson Gallery will be putting all administration duties on hold. Due to the current situation we are sorry to announce that the Summer Show 2020 exhibition will unfortunately not be able to go ahead this year. All artists that have submitted work to this year’s Summer Show exhibition will have their fees refunded.

We look forward to opening our gallery doors to you all again soon. Wishing you all well during these difficult times.


Established in 1992, the Atkinson Gallery is nationally recognised and holds major contemporary art exhibitions which are open to the general public. It aims to support young, aspiring artists and bring high calibre, international art to the South West region.

Millfield’s stimulating arts landscape is also enhanced by a unique sculpture collection within our extensive parkland that features large scale permanent works from artists such as Glynn Williams and Peter Randall-Page.

Some past exhibitors

Andy Warhol, Albert Irvin OBE, Sir Anthony Caro, Lynn Chadwick CBE, Gillian Ayres, Don McCullin, Graham Crowley, Marc Quinn, Dame Elisabeth Frink, Sophie Ryder, Peter Randall-Page, Doug Cocker, Glynn Williams, Anthony Green, Tom Wood, Basil Beattie, Clyde Hopkins and Terry Frost.
