The Atkinson Art Gallery is situated between the Library and the Arts Centre in Lord Street, near the junction with Eastbank Street, in Southport, Merseyside, England.

It is funded by Sefton Council, and is operated as part of Sefton’s Arts and Cultural Services Section.

The collection includes nineteenth and twentieth century watercolours, and Victorian and twentieth century oil paintings. Themed exhibitions from the permanent collection are regularly shown. Every month the Gallery ‘spotlights’ a “Painting (or Sculpture) of the Month”, and a talk is given about the artist and the subject.

 The Gallery also has a temporary exhibition programme, providing an opportunity for visitors to see touring exhibitions, and work by practicing contemporary artists.

A voluntary organization aimed at fostering a greater interest in the Atkinson Art Gallery and visual arts in general.
