The Otter Gallery
The Otter Gallery forms an integral and vital part of the University of Chichester. It offers a welcoming and accessible space for art to both its immediate community of staff and students and diverse audiences beyond.
Core to the gallery's mission is the care, promotion and development of the University's art collections, including a nationally significant collection of mid-20th century British art, reflecting its original intention to place art at the heart of people's lives.
The Otter Gallery provides an artistic stimulus for research and learning, exploring new perspectives and insights through practice, display, interpretation and engagement.
