It collaborates with a diverse range of excellent and challenging artists and designers working in different media, providing audiences from a wide range of educational, social and cultural backgrounds with different points of access to the arts.
R Space is a lively and welcoming environment that excites visitors into thinking and talking about the arts and provides an opportunity to purchase visual arts and craft and for their own homes and collections.
R Space exhibits the work of artists and makers who explore Materials, Messages and Methods of production of work that has meaning in its quality. It is important that their work considers What they use, Why they use it and How they present its outcome.
