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, including oil painting, darkroom photography, lost wax casting and more. These workshops are hosted by dedicated practitioners who are excited to share these skills and enable people with little to no experience to indulge in the arts and express themselves creatively.
The six-foot gallery now has a membership scheme that will allow patrons to take part in an annual showing of their work as well as a number of other benefits including discounts on workshops and invitations to private viewings of shows.
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. Making sure that everyone is happy, as Six Foot Gallery is run by artists for artists.
