The gallery opened once again on Tuesday with a major exhibition by British painter Anj Smith.

The exhibition comprises new and recent works, many of which can be seen for the first time in Walsall.

Featuring paintings and prints, this is the largest presentation of the artist’s work in a UK public gallery to date and offers a rare opportunity to view a significant body of work together.

Stephen Snoddy, gallery director, said: ‘‘It was great to welcome the public back to the gallery and we had a steady flow throughout the day to see new work by Anj Smith, the Garman Ryan Collection and the ‘Living Memory’ project in the Community Gallery. There is no need to book and admission is free so please come and support your local gallery."

An online event, entitled In Conversation with Anj Smith and Dr Zoe Whitley, is to be staged on May 25, from 5pm to 6pm, and anyone interested is being asked to register.
