A truly great collection: a must-see for any art lover
sep. 2021
This gallery is a beautiful modern building, established (with Lottery funding) principally to house the Garman Ryan Collection- a truly astonishing collection of work, which is brilliantly displayed. It's a real delight and worth travelling from (say) London for... in fact, really a must-see for any art lover visiting the UK.

Garman was the partner of the sculptor Jacob Epstein and unsurprisingly there are numerous examples of his work. For instance there's a superb study of "Old Pinager's Clasped Hands" and a very fine bust of TS Eliot. But much, much more awaits! Amazing Tang pots, West African sculpture; drawings of the very highest quality from established names such as Picasso, Corot, Degas, Turner, Constable, Freud, Augustus John, but also remarkable work of lesser known artists such as Stanislas Lepine and Pierre Subleyras, etc etc.

It's a very eclectic mix of objects- mainly small sculptures, pottery and paintings and drawings- collected with a great eye. This collection - one of the finest anywhere put together by a single collector (a menage of three, actually)- is housed on the middle two floors. The lower and upper floors house exhibitions. The ground floor holds a fascinating series of photos and video documenting the lives of a variety of 20th Century inhabitants of Walsall.

A great afternoon trip
mai 2021
This is a great art gallery to look around and spend an hour or two in. The permanent Garman Ryan collection is interesting and varied on your first visit (though gets a bit dull if you go repeatedly!) and there's usually a multitude of interesting temporary exhibits. There's also a gift shop, a Costa Coffee and plentiful toilets within the gallery.

In terms of accessibility, there's a couple of lifts as well as the stairs and there are toilets on every floor as far as I could see. The interior doors can be quite heavy and some may find them difficult to push, but there's generally staff around who're more than happy to help if you need it.

Overall, if you're in the surrounding area and want somewhere to spend an interesting couple of hours, the art gallery is definitely worth a visit. It's free to enter, has a variety of different things to look at and is very clean and tidy.

This place is at the top of Walsall Town centre, it's a free place to visit and the exhibitions are very interested. It's also got a gift shop and I think it has a little cafe.

A most splendid art gallery with world class exhibits and exhibition space.
mar. 2020
We were bowled over by the very high quality of this gallery. It is an architectural gem of a building and the individual galleries are well laid out and full of light. There is so much to see but the Garman Ryan Collection was the jewel in the crown of the New Art Gallery. It contains a marvellous collection of works by Jacob Epstein but a world-class collection of works by the greatest artists of all time. On one small wall, there were five pieces by Picasso - Van Gogh - Cezanne - Sisley and Pissaro. (Probably got that wrong but such was the quality!) We visited five art galleries in three cities during the week and this was most certainly the best by a long mile.

World class gallery
mar. 2020
Twenty years old and still one of the worlds's best gallery buildings. Deserves to be much better visited and supported.

I wonder if the local council have the slightest idea of what they have in their midst.
It should get all the helppossible to enable it to attract visitors to Walsall,

Lets face it there aren't many other reasons to go.

An outstanding collection!
jan. 2020
This Art Gallery really is the jewel in Wallsall's crown, with an amazing representation of the great artists of the European tradition. It really should receive much more publicity as there are very few regional galleries that have the breadth of work on display. Go!

The building is a five minute walk from the station. The ticket staff should be invited on a private tour so that they know the Gallery exists and can give directions when asked. I was surprised that the first person I asked had not even heard of the place! Although rather ugly on the outside, it works well when inside it, spread over six floors but accessible for those who use wheelchairs as the doors open automatically and there is a large lift.

I cannot praise the staff highly enough. Rarely have I received such a warm welcome. The lady on the reception desk was also extremely knowledgeable about the works on diplay, as was one of the attendants in the Gallery who engaged me in conversation about the individual pieces and was also able to talk to me about the life of the artist whose family donated the collection, Jacob Epstein.

The Gallery has an intimate feel, with relatively small rooms that have themed displays, as Lady Epstein had requested. She and a well-heeled friend, Sally Ryan, collected and then donated some 365 works of art. There are many sculptures by Jacob Epstein, but also represented are: Lucian Freud (who married the Epstein's daughter having previously bedded Lady E's sister!); Modigliana; Constable; Monet; Pissaro; Picasso; Van Gogh; Renoir; Rembrandt; Turner; Rodin; Cezanne; Matisse; Monet; Degas; Rossetti; Gainsborough; Landseer; Durer; Burne-Jones; Dufy; Millet; and Vuillard - to name but a few! They are not necessarily the best examples of each artist's craft, but it absolutely incredible that such a collection exists, in one place, outside of London (which can only be a good thing). It was wonderful to discover new things, such as the work of the Epstein's son, Theo, who sadly died when 30 years old.

I was also impressed by the Gallery's list of events, which are either free or low cost, ecouraging of families to attend, and exhibiting the best in diversity, with events to suit all cultures.

All I can say again is: go!
