TheGallery is celebrating its 20th anniversary with the Suddenly Last Summer 2018 exhibition

Now a nationally renowned exhibition space, TheGallery was the vision of AUB’s Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stuart Bartholomew, CBE.

After joining AUB in 1997, he set out to establish a gallery at the university to display exhibitions featuring the work of national and international artists.

TheGallery programme was established in 1998 with the appointment of Violet McClean as a part-time Exhibitions Officer and the AUB alumna and BA (Hons) Creative Events Management graduate is now Senior Gallery Officer.

Now to mark its 20th birthday, the public is invited to attend an event that is being held in TheGallery on Thursday, October 11, alongside the Suddenly Last Summer 2018 exhibition.
