The Peter Scott Gallery

In the late 1960s and early 1970s Lancaster University began to build up an art collection. This collection focuses on works by contemporary British artists and consists primarily of artist's original prints and sculpture.
The collection includes works by artists from the St Ives School, Sir Terry Frost, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Barbara Hepworth and William Scott. Among other British artists whose work is represented are Norman Adams, Patrick Caulfield, Elizabeth Frink, Kenneth Martin and Winifred Nicholson. Within the last fifteen years works by Andy Goldsworthy, Peter Howson and Albert Irvin have been acquired.
In addition there are prints by major European artists such Julius Bissier, Eduardo Chillida, Andre Derain, Max Ernst and Henri Matisse, as well as the 'Constellations' series by Joan Miró.

The entire collection is not on permanent display but a selection of works is shown as part of changing exhibitions. Please contact the gallery for information about works currently on display or to arrange to view items by appointment.
Lancaster’s Peter Scott Gallery presents a varied programme of temporary exhibitions and associated talks. Admission is free of charge and everyone is welcome. The gallery holds the most significant collection of Royal Lancastrian ceramics in Britain, which is on permanent display in the John Chambers Ceramics Room.
The gallery also houses Lancaster University’s international art collection, which includes Japanese and Chinese art, antiquities, works by twentieth century British artists and prints by significant European artists such as Dürer, Miró, Ernst and Vasarely.
