Covid 19 Leicester Gallery is currently closed to the public and we are keeping in touch online through our social media

In light of the most recent public advice on Covid 19 we are closed to the public and will remain so for the foreseeable future. As soon as we are able to invite you back in we will let you know.

We are immensely grateful for the on-running support of our audiences and we want to prioritise their welfare and that of our staff and artists with whom we work. To ensure this we are joining other venues across Leicester and the United Kingdom in pausing our activity at Leicester Gallery until it is safe to reopen. This will be under a constant process of review and updates can be found on both our website and our social media.

During this time we will be trying new ways to share our work with you from film tours of our exhibition to activity packs for children. To keep informed about our online activity please visit us at or visit our Facebook page on:

Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2020

Welcome to the trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019 The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019 is an annual exhibition of drawings supported by the Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust. Founded in 1994, the exhibition project celebrates the role and value of drawing within creative practice and provides a forum to test, evaluate and disseminate current drawing practice within the UK. The annual exhibition is open to all drawing practitioners in the UK who wish to submit drawings for consideration by the annually appointed selection panels.

The Little Drawing Exhibition

The Little Drawing Exhibition celebrates the role of drawing in the development of children from birth to four years old. Some of the drawings are material play and some are clearly recognisable depictions of objects or people. They all have been created by very small children beginning to try and represent the world around them.
