Artists have formed a co-operative to open up a new gallery.

Artworld Gallery will officially open at The Ridings on Saturday.

It follows the success of the shopping centre’s pop-up Gallery 102.

Victoria Clapham, Marketing Manager at The Ridings said: “The previous popup gallery was a real favourite with our shoppers so we decided to investigate the potential of bringing something more permanent to the centre. We’ve already seen how successful co-operative run stores can be, with our Created in Yorkshire co-operative continuing to go from strength-to-strength, and look forward to this initiative being replicated.

“Artworld Gallery offers something new to Wakefield and will build on the artistic and cultural experience available throughout the city.”
