The Link Gallery

The Link Gallery

One of the core values of the University is creativity and we are immensely proud of the extensive and diverse art collection on display in our buildings and grounds.

Much of our collection dates back to when we delivered courses in fine art. We have continued to collect works of art and we have an excellent reputation for supporting emerging local and regional artists.

Our main exhibition space, The Link Gallery, was opened in 2001 and has been hosting exciting annual programmes of free exhibitions by contemporary regional artists.

Exhibiting at the Link Gallery

Located in the Winchester Business School on our West Downs Campus on Romsey Road, the Link Gallery is arranged over two floors providing an elegant light space available for exhibitions all year round. Gallery dimensions: Lower & Upper Link Gallery 10.38m x 7.74m (at widest point), 2.74m (at narrowest point).

The gallery is fully booked for 2018 but we welcome proposals for 2019. In autumn 2019, we are looking forward to moving into a brand new exhibition space; more information forthcoming.

All proposals are considered by the Friends of Art Group. Proposals should include:

  • Preferred exhibition dates
  • Up-to-date CV including contact details
  • An exhibition proposal (500 words max.)
  • Visual material that represents previous or current work (by email or link to a website where examples of work can be viewed)

The University charges a 20% commission on sales but artists are not charged for using the gallery.
