The Towner Art Gallery

The building which houses the Towner Art Gallery was bequeathed to the Eastbourne Corporation (the Council) in 1920 by Alderman John Chisholm Towner along with 21 paintings. Today the Towner Art Gallery contains more than 2000 works of art.

The Towner is best known for its collection of British works of the 19th & 20th centuries.

The Towner has exhibited many popular and exciting works of art, such as works owned by Charles Saatchi which formed part of the infamous Sensation exhibition and work by Turner Prize winner Gillian Wearing.
