Newmarket is home to a variety of art galleries that display a diverse selection of both local and international art. Alongside art galleries, you will find an impressive array of street art, murals and sculptures down streets and alleyways by local and acclaimed artists, each with a story that is significant to the area. The Newmarket Arts Trust has been responsible for commissioning a number of installing public art works in Newmarket.
