The gallery is situated in Crossley House which is located between the Market Hall and Burton & South Derbyshire College in Burton upon Trent. The venue houses; to the front, a coffee shop, where you can enjoy a range of fine teas and ground coffees, along with a range of tasty homemade fine snacks and cakes, with ingredients locally sourced wherever possible. The café includes the offer of vegetarian / vegan / gluten free options, all served in a creative way to match the creative environment.
There is a small selection of art materials for sale in the shop area to nurture creative skills, before you enter the gallery space proper, which is a large area (approx 36sq metres), housing a range of artwork; from paintings and drawings to jewellery, pottery and sculptures, predominantly by local creatives.
