About Young Gallery

Young Gallery Salisbury can be found on the first floor of the central library in Salisbury Market Square. In 2013 we celebrated our centenary following the original bequest by Edwin Young that established the original gallery in 1913.

In our centenary year we were successful with a grant from the Arts Council England South West for a project called preSENSE which aims to develop our audiences and raise awareness for the gallery through a programme of new exhibitions and innovative participatory arts programmes inspired by the art collections and working with target communities including, families, the military and older people.

This project will further support us to redevelop the galleries to provide permanent exhibitions which both mark the life and achievements of both Edwin Young and John Creasey and provide access to the collections held by the Edwin Young and John Creasey Museum Trusts in new and exciting ways. You can read more about the preSENSE project here.

There are five art collections held at the Young Gallery including:

  1. Edwin Young Collection
  2. The John Creasey Museum
  3. Edgar Barclay
  4. Robin Tanner
  5. Mick Maslen

Please click the names above to see more about each of these collections.

As part of the project we have unvested in this new website and getting on board with social media to continue to grow our audiences. Find us on facebook and follow us on twitter.
