The gallery opened in 1996 and is within a minutes’ walk from Hartlepool Railway Station and close to Hartlepool Town Centre, the Middleton Grange Shopping Centre, National Museum of the Royal Navy Hartlepool and Town Hall Theatre. Church Street and Church Square are the centre of the towns revitalisation with it moving towards a cafe culture and thriving daytime economy based around the new campus for Cleveland College of Art and Design The Northern School of Art since 1879.

The gallery  has two exhibition spaces available The Main Gallery and The Apse Gallery. It has an extensive exhibition programme which aims to be ambitious and creatively diverse. The gallery’s programming group strive to ensure the exhibition line-up chimes with the town, is inspiring for future artists but also the audience feels that there is something there for them. This is achieved through a programme mix of  in-house curated exhibitions, open artist proposals and exhibition developed in partnership.
