The Minories Art Gallery

A listed Georgian building, The Minories is of local importance within the historic town of Colchester. The Victor Batte-Lay Foundation, over the years assisted by the Friends of the Minories support group, have ensured the building be used to the benefit of the local arts community. This has continued and now ensures the Colchester School of Art provides contemporary art and design in one of Colchester’s most distinctive buildings.

As well as studios for the MA students, the site also houses a public gallery and café surrounded by a walled garden. The Minories is next door to firstsite, Colchester’s new contemporary art space, in the centre of the town’s cultural quarter.
