O3 Gallery Oxford


There are 2 ways of exhibiting at the O3 Gallery:

1) Apply for a selected exhibition.

These exhibitions are selected by the O3 Gallery team in line with proposals that are submitted. To put forward a proposal, please email the following information to :
• A covering letter, outlining how you wish to use the space, when you would prefer to exhibit and a guide to the prices you normally charge for your work.
• Up to 20 images of your work in low-res jpeg format. (Please label all your images with title, size, medium and date.)
• An up to date Curriculum Vitae. • An Artist Statement.
• Links to any web pages with more work/information.

Selected exhibitions run for approximately 4 weeks and are curated, installed, marketed and promoted by the O3 Gallery. The cost of this is heavily subsidised by the gallery, however as we function on a not-for-profit basis, for the benefit of the local community, we do require artists to pay an exhibitions fee of £375* in order to contribute to the costs.

*Exhibitions fees are £375 for selling exhibitions, alongside a gallery commission rate of 40%. The exhibition fee for non-selling exhibitions is £1,500 for a 4 week period.

For each selected exhibition the O3 Gallery purchases a piece of artwork to form part of the Oxford Castle Art Collection. Click here for further details.

Please note: Due to the volume of applications we receive, we are only able to write to applicants whose proposals are selected. There is no deadline for applications. The O3 Gallery does not invite artists to present their work at the gallery informally and therefore please do not ‘cold call’. You are welcome to drop your application in by hand if you wish to do so.

2) Hire the gallery space as part of our ‘O3 Open’ periods.

O3 Gallery is now available for 1 week private exhibition hire during our ‘O3 Open’ periods. Forthcoming un-booked O3 Open weeks include:

Monday 14th - Monday 21st July 2014
Monday 25th August - Monday 1st September 2014
Monday 1st - Monday 8th September 2014

The cost of hiring the gallery space for 1 week (opening hours 12-5pm) is £375. The space available for hire includes the gallery walls (not including the walls in the retail space at the upper level of the gallery) and the lower gallery floor. The O3 Gallery will provide invigilation and no commission will be taken. All sales must be processed directly through the artist. The O3 Gallery will not curate or market ‘O3 Open’ exhibitions; it is to be understood on application that all promotion is the responsibility of the artist. To make a booking please email with some images of the work you would like to display and the corresponding prices. Please clearly outline which week you would like to book.

As well as proposals for commercial artwork, the O3 Gallery also welcomes applications from jewellers / designer-makers, installation/performance artists and musicians.
