ABOUT

open Tuesday, Thursday & Friday
@ The Pentagon Centre, Glasgow


OUR MISSION

Six Foot Gallery is an alternative art and design space, providing a platform for exhibitions and events within a non-traditional gallery setting.

The space is situated throughout the ground floor of Glasgow’s Pentagon Centre, a business hub with high levels of footfall and public diversity.

Originally founded by the artist Clare Crines, Six Foot is run by a team of interns from a range of specialisms and backgrounds with a collective concern for the promotion of emerging creative practitioners. The gallery invites artists and designers to respond to the space, its physicality and populace through open calls, residencies and opportunities for solo and group shows. The Gallery also offers workshops on a diverse range of subjects.

We here at the gallery make it our goal to stay part of the larger dialogue on contemporary art and design while providing as much help and support to our artists. Six Foot Gallery is truly run by artists for artists.
