Albert Gallery (Working Art Space Sheffield)

Details

Description

The Albert Gallery is housed in a heritage-listed former drill hall built in 1912 for the 22nd Light Horse Company. The interior of the building has been transformed into a high-quality arts-based facility where you can view and purchase the exceptional work of local artists and artisans, enrol in one of the regularly held workshops plus check out the latest exhibition on display. If you take the self-guided audio tour of Sheffield's murals, which can be arranged through the Visitor Information Centre, you will eventually find yourself at the Albert Gallery because it boasts its own mural with a fitting theme - an old man reminiscing on his youth as a Light Horseman. You can access the gallery by road or by strolling along the Mosaic Pathway, created by WASS members, which crosses King George V Park.

The Mosaic Pathway was created by members of Working Art Space Sheffield (WASS) and features mosaics of Tasmanian flora and fauna. The pathway starts at the car-park in the centre of town and crosses historic King George V Park. It also features the names of the 318 Sheffield Pioneers still buried in the park engraved in bricks along the pathway. The Albert Gallery sits at the end of this pathway on Albert Street.

Brochures describing the pathway are available at the Information Centre, the Albert Gallery or the Pioneer Gallery. It is definitely worth a visit
