Information for Artists



  • Are you a local artist who is keen to see your work exhibited?  Well Cheltenham’s well established community art gallery – The Gardens Gallery – located in the restored Proscenium Building in Montpellier Gardens is available to hire.
  • The Gallery is fully fitted with everything that is needed to exhibit your work including a hanging system, display screens, spot lighting and it even has a small kitchen.
  • As a Community Interest Company we aim to keep our hire charges as low as possible to enable local artists to show their work to the community.  You can exhibit as a solo artist or in combination with artist friends or as part of a larger art group.
  • You may also hire the Gallery for other arts-related activities such as educational pursuits, art workshops.
  • Our Virtual Sales Gallery now offers artists who have booked the Gallery the opportunity to sell their work on line for a period of up to 3 months.  For further information click here
  • The Gardens Gallery is an artist led initiative, formed by a consortium of five local art groups and managed by volunteers.  This voluntary effort helps keep the overheads low to make it affordable and the hire rate is set at a level that will just enable the running costs to be covered, with any small surplus being reinvested in the development of the gallery.
