York Art Gallery is currently closed as a major redevelopment takes place and will reopen in 2015.
The aim is to increase the gallery's display space by 60% by creating a new first-floor gallery in the space above the Main Gallery on the ground floor, and expanding into the rooms next door to the gallery, formerly occupied by the City Archives.
The 'new' gallery will then have three exhibition galleries on the ground floor, capable of hosting major national and international exhibitions, and four on the first floor, two of which will showcase CoCA, the newly created Centre of Ceramic Art.
A new entrance to the gallery will be created at the back of the building, leading down from the new first floor gallery into a newly-opened up section of the Museum Gardens, which will be developed into a public green space for fun and outdoor learning.
Other developments will include a new expanded cafe, a new lift, new toilets, new shop, a new collection store and an improved Studio space for learning.
