Six Foot Gallery invites artists working in all mediums and from all walks of life to take part in our upcoming open call, MulticulturAlba, an exhibition of work that examines ’Scottishness’ in society today.

  • Send us depictions of your favourite Scottish landmarks, your back green, your high street, the view from your favourite spot.
  • Send us works illustrating objects that you think are quintessentially Scottish.
  • Send us art that tells a story of your family’s history or reflects your quirky family traditions.
  • Send us work that symbolises your journey to Scotland or your experience of settling here.
  • Send us portraits of your great-granny or your favourite Scottish heartthrob.
  • Send us work that explores Scottish history, myth, and folklore, the possibility of Scottish independence, or Scotland’s role in the transatlantic slave trade.
  • Send us work that represents what it means to you to be Scottish today.

We accept canvases, framed and unframed works, photography, prints, sculptures, artists’ books, jewellery, installations, and just about anything else you can think of.

Whether you’re a professional or just starting out in your practice, email us your submissions now! Please include a photograph and a description of the work you’re submitting, and a bit about yourself in your email. We look forward to hearing from you 😊

Scotland not your thing? Look out for our next Open Call in April 👀


GALLERY HIRE

We offer a two week hire slot for a fixed rate of £150, plus 40% commission on any sales of exhibited works and 20% commission on sales of prints of exhibited works.

We currently have four slots available in our exhibitions timetable for 2024:

  • May 10th – May 24th
  • Jul 25th – Aug 8th
  • Aug 9th – Aug 23rd
  • Aug 27th – Sept 12th

If you’re not already familiar with the gallery, we strongly advise you to come in and have a look around before you begin to plan your show. Six Foot Gallery is a large, bright space, approximately forty metres long, comprised of a mix of wall hanging areas and freestanding plinths (for optional use).

Please give thorough consideration to whether your body of work will adequately fill the gallery. If not, why not arrange a collaborative show with a fellow artist? We welcome exhibition proposals from solo artists, groups, and collectives, of all skill and experience levels, and we’re happy to help with every aspect of arranging your exhibition, from framing advice to brainstorming a good title!

Please do email us to discuss hiring the gallery – including images of your previous/current work, a description of your exhibition concept, and a bit about yourself and your practice – or pop in to the office and we’ll give you a tour around the space. We’d love to hear your ideas, and we’re happy to answer any questions you might have.


SIX FOOT SMALLER: DISPLAY CABINET HIRE

Perhaps the nature of your small works makes it difficult to find a suitable exhibition space, or maybe you only have a small collection of miniature works and aren’t quite ready for a more daunting larger show? Our prominently situated and secure Display Cabinets are the ideal size to host a mini exhibition without the larger overheads and responsibility of hiring the whole gallery space.

Our Display Cabs are perfect for displaying:

  • artist’s books
  • handmade jewellery
  • assemblages
  • ceramics
  • textile works
  • models and sculptures
  • postcard sized works
  • text based works (we’d love to exhibit some poetry!)

Each Cab measures 38cm x 38cm x 165cm, and there are five shelves in each (28cm, 36cm, and 30cm high (3x). Hire costs £30 for two weeks, plus 20% commission on any sales of your work.

We’d love to hear any ideas you might have for our little exhibition spaces! Drop us an email, along with a few photos of your work, and let’s talk about it.
