The School of Art promotes its art collection as a public resource. It offers primary research material for public reference and in its galleries a regular programme of public exhibitions from the Collection as well as providing a venue for prestigious touring exhibitions, works by invited artists, staff and students of the School of Art. The Collection makes an invaluable contribution to the teaching and research activities of the School.

All collections are available to the public in addition to being used for teaching and research. In the School’s galleries there are changing exhibitions from the Collection, touring shows and exhibitions by invited artists. All artefacts are accessible for study by appointment.

The University Museum was founded in 1876; in time it outgrew its space and the material was devolved to individual departments who formed and developed their own collections. The Art and Crafts Museum was established in 1918 and has since been administered by the Department of Art. The School of Art Gallery and Museum and the Ceramics Gallery, as we are renamed, are now both Registered Museums.

Our superb collection of 20th century British ceramics from pioneer studio pottery to contemporary, together with Welsh slipware and porcelain, is housed and displayed in the Ceramics Gallery at Aberystwyth Arts Centre on the University campus. The School of Art houses other ceramic collections that are available for study by appointment, most notably 18th-century British Delft, Art Pottery, and Japanese ceramics that include Satsuma and Bizenware.
