Tartu Artists Union has been organising exhibitions in the halls of their gallery at Vanemuine 26 since its completion in 1959. At first, exhibitions were held only in the halls on the first floor of the Art Gallery. Exhibitions have also been organised in other more or less suitable rooms of the house in Vanemuise Street at different times. The ground floor gallery of the Art Gallery was opened in autumn 2000 and the monumental gallery facing the yard was opened in winter 2008. All exhibitions are free for both the artists and visitors.
