We are now asking for proposals for exhibitions for 2024.

A gallery as part of a garden centre is a great way to bring art, and individually crafted products to a wide range of people who would not normally visit an art gallery, as well as giving local artists an outlet for their products.

We want to know your ideas for an interesting exhibition in this space, and also new art and craftwork for our gallery and shop in the leadup to Christmas.

Proposals due 1st September 2023

Email your proposals to and we’ll get back to you .

We do not charge rent, but take a commission on sales.

We will need to know:

1. Your name and contact details

2. Who is exhibiting?

A solo exhibition, or with colleagues -a group or another artist?

3. What you are planning to exhibit?

  • Theme, artist statement
  • Description of the work – Media, range of items, scale.
  • Images/sketches/descriptions of the proposed new work or similar. ( But PLEASE no large images)
  • Approximate price range
  • Is it something new?

4.Exhibition Dates

We may need to be flexible with dates, with the possibility of closures or changes to trading if the pandemic continues.

However, let us know times when you would not be able to exhibit, as well as your preferred exhibition dates.  Please be as flexible as possible, as this means we are more likely to be able to offer you a space .

5. New Artists

  • either a link to a web site or page,
