Sir Peter Blake Gallery

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SIR PETER BLAKE GALLERY IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. 

Due to the current circumstances and impact of COVID-19, we are sorry to confirm that the Summer Exhibition will not go ahead in May and has been postponed until further notice. All artists who have entered this exhibition will be contacted and kept up to date with their entries and the future plans for this exhibition. 

Sir Peter Blake Gallery is an exhibition space showcasing emerging and established artists, as well as provides exhibitions of interest to Dartford people.

The gallery celebrates the extraordinary career of artist Sir Peter Blake who was born in Dartford in 1932. One of Britain's best known artists and a major influence on the Pop Art movement, Sir Peter has contributed some of the most globally recognisable art and design of modern times including artwork for the covers of The Beatle's album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Band Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas?

Situated in the same building as Dartford Library and the Borough Museum, the gallery is curated by Dartford Borough Council on behalf of Kent County Council's Libraries, Registrations and Archives Service.
