Peter Scott Gallery, Lancaster

Lancaster’s Peter Scott Gallery presents a varied programme of temporary exhibitions and associated talks. Admission is free of charge and everyone is welcome. The art gallery holds the most significant collection of Royal Lancastrian ceramics in Britain, which is on permanent display in the John Chambers Ceramics Room.

The gallery houses Lancaster University’s international art collection, which includes Japanese and Chinese art, antiquities, works by twentieth century British artists and prints by significant European artists such as Dürer, Miró, Ernst and Vasarely.

The collection is not on permanent display but a number of works are shown every year as part of changing exhibitions. Please contact the gallery for information about works currently on display or to view items by appointment.  

Our upcoming temporary exhibitions are shown on the left hand column or you can visit our what's on page. For more details on our art collections please see our Art Collections pages 

John Chambers Ceramics Room

The John Chambers Ceramics Room is currently closed while we work with the Pilkington’s Pottery Society to re-display our Royal Lancastrian Ceramics.

The new displays will give a history of the collection as told through the individual pieces and highlight the many significant and beautiful items we hold. Thank you for your patience while we carry out this work.

Details and re-opening dates will be posted here or you can sign up to our mailing list to receive updates direct to your inbox.

In the meantime, some of our ceramics can be seen as part of the exhibition Nothing Beautiful Unless Useful at Whitechapel Gallery, London until 1st December 2013 and then at Victoria Gallery & Museum, Liverpool from 7 March – 31 May 2014.
