Gallery FAQ

How much does it cost to have an exhibition?

For club members there is a flat rate fee of £30 for a 4 week exhibition.
Non-members have two options: £200 for a 2 week exhibition or £400 for 4 weeks.

The cost does not include prints, mounts, preparation of an exhibition poster and cost of the private view, which all have to be covered by an exhibitor.

Can I mount my work/photographs at the club?

Yes. You can use the gallery space (provided that it is not being used). We have a rotary trimmer, bevel mount cutter, aluminium ruler and cutting mat.

Where can I get mounting boards?

Most art shops have in stock a selection of different colours/sizes. The nearest one being Cowling & Wilcox in Camberwell. The cheapest one is Cass Art.

Pre-cut mounts are also available in standard sizes and a number of colours/finishes.
