Exhibitions at Waterside

What's on?

Waterside prides itself on the quality of its free visual art exhibitions which showcase both established figures and exciting contemporary artists.

Work is displayed across the centre's three gallery spaces which together maintain a rich and varied programme.

Please note that our galleries are programmed up to one year in advance.
