For the past 200 years, the gallery has been the home of new and cutting-edge art, a place where the art community can come together and share new ideas.

In the era of the internet, you can view remarkable art from the comfort of your laptop. Accessible to virtually everyone, web art does away with the physical limitations of the gallery and makes impossibly cool art a part of our daily lives!
