More Information

The Front Room is a community exhibition space situated within The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge.

Exhibitors will have exclusive use of The Front Room and facilities required to professionally exhibit work.

Exhibitors will benefit from the museum and gallery’s high footfall and prominent high street location (averaging 10,000 per eight week exhibition) as well as excellent facilities.

There is no commission charge on artists’ sales from the gallery walls.

The Front Room is available to hire at £1400 + VAT per eight week block, additional weeks charged at £220.

The Beaney and The Front Room goes from strength to strength and is more popular than ever with not only the locals but further afield, especially with the open exhibitions which get a lot of publicity on social media which extends its profile. I have been honoured to have exhibited and sold work in The Front Room. It makes me very happy to be part of The Front Room’s artistic hub!
