Established in 1987, Spiš Artists' Gallery, Spišská Nová Ves collects, documents and researches works of art in relation to Slovakia, with specific reference to Spiš. The gallery's collection is predominantly made up of works (painting, sculpture, prints, photography) by regional artists from the late 19th century down to the present, numbering over 800 pieces.

The gallery is located in a restored Renaissance building which dates from the 2nd half of the 16th century and boasts a wealth of interesting architectural details. In 1726 it was given a Baroque facade and in the late 18th century the rear wing and first floor were redesigned in Neo-Classicist style.
