New Limited Edition Print

Artist Emma Wilde has created two limited edition prints to coincide with our summer exhibition New Art MK.


These intricate soft ground etchings depict how the original minimalist mould for Milton Keynes has been embellished by cracked paving, stained concrete and over spilling flora and fauna.

MK Gallery Gets a Facelift

The gallery exterior has been undergoing a dramatic change over the past week, as a local company has been hand painting a colourful, large-scale mural, designed for us by Sara De Bondt studio.


Referencing the graphics on our rebranded website we hope visitors find this scheme lively and welcoming.


Come to see the completed exterior at the launch of our next exhibition New Art MK.
