This is one of the best small galleries I have visited. "Hidden" on the top floor of the library it hosts a surprisingly large array of modern and classical paintings and sculptures and is well worth a look.

On the 3rd floor of the library. Walk up the stairs to see the delightful architectural detail. An eclectic but well curated mix of art. The signage was particularly well designed and informative. Beautiful

Nice big rooms with lots of interesting paintings and other artworks. Great to walk slowly around from room to room taking it all in. Very tranquil.

Love to visit to enjoy the art work. Damien Hurst, Grayson Perry . Picasso etc. The acquisition of a tapestry by Grayson Perry is stunning. We enjoyed finding out the history of Mr Graves and his donations to the people of Sheffield.

With some truly fine pictiures in it's collection this gallery is well worth the visit. It's only a small collection but worth an hour of anyone's time. They have visiting exhibitions which are usually interesting. A good mixture of work with lots of important 20th...More
