Quarr Abbey’s gallery space is the perfect location for new and established Isle of Wight based artists to exhibit their work to a diverse audience of varying ages and backgrounds. Our gallery space is light and airy, with good lighting and multiple power outlets.
The gallery is ideally suited for hanging paintings, drawings, prints and photographs, and for displaying ceramics and small to medium sized sculptures. And we welcome enquiries from artists working in all kinds of media.
Please note that due to increased demand for space we are trialling a new system for taking exhibition bookings in 2023. If you would like to apply for space, please submit your application using the form below.
All exhibitors must have a minimum public liability insurance indemnity of £5,000,000 either as a sole artist or as a group at the time of the exhibition. All exhibitors will be required to sign and return the Exhibitor Terms and Conditions no later that two weeks prior to their exhibition. All payments are required no later than four weeks prior to the exhibition start date.
Individual artists are limited to no more than two weeks in a year at Quarr Abbey Gallery, either showing alone or with one other artist. In addition, they may also show within groups. (Groups are defined as three or more artists). Groups are limited to no more than two weeks in a year also.
We would like to encourage new Island artists and so we will reserve two weeks, one in March and one in October. If you have not exhibited at Quarr Abbey Gallery before, please apply as a new artist.
