Changing exhibitions

Bury Art Gallery has a selection of exhibitions with a broad appeal that have something to offer art lovers with a variety of tastes.

Put that light out

The Second World War affected the daily lives of the people of Bury in many ways. School life was disrupted, food was short, factories turned over to war work and men left their homes to fight in the war. This exhibition explores the role of Bury's ARP wardens, men from various walks of life whose role was to put out fires, guide civilians to safety during air attacks, make sure people used black out curtains and turned their lights out at night. Another important part of the war effort at home was the role of rescue animals. In this exhibition we celebrate four special dogs who were recognised for their bravery, three of which were awarded the Dicken Medal by the PDSA.

The King of the Cats

6 December to 7 March

Lancashire Tales creatively explored by five Lancashire artists through sculpture, painting, text, sound, drawing and installation. Come and meet talking cats, boggarts, haunted hares and ghostly spectres and immerse yourself in windswept moorland, snow capped hills and icy becks. The four artists and writer have created a stunning and varied exhibition of engaging contemporary art deeply rooted in the local environment. The exhibition includes visitor activities for all ages, including opportunities to contribute your own local story and accompanying workshops.
