GALLERY HIRE

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

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!

We offer a two-week hire slot for a fixed rate of £150, plus 25% commission on any sales of exhibited works and prints.

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

  • Jul 2nd – July 18th
  • Jul 19th – Aug 6th
  • Nov 7th – Nov 21st

Please do email us to discuss exhibiting with us, 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.
