This year our Spring Exhibition will be held at Gallery 66 in The Old High Street and will be open to the public from Thursday 23rd May- Monday 3rd June. Below is information for artists on how to exhibit.

Information for exhibitors

  • Anyone can join Folkestone Art Society and exhibit at our shows. We do not ‘jury’ entries so any member can put forward works for inclusion and they will be included. Work submitted should not have been shown in a member’s exhibition previously. However, exhibitors must be a current member of the Society to exhibit. So, if you wish to exhibit but are currently not a member, please purchase a membership on our Join page first
  • Members wishing to exhibit their work can purchase an exhibiting ticket up to and including 21st May 2024 after which it will not be possible to purchase new tickets for practical organisational reasons
  • Members can submit up to two pieces of artwork to be exhibited. Hanging space and/or display space for up to 2 framed/3D items is offered to all artists (max dimensions for 2D artwork is ‘A4 within a frame of max dimensions A3’ with D rings & cord for hanging – max dimensions for 3D artwork is 30cm at base x 40cm high)
  • A ticket for the required number of exhibits (1 or 2) can be purchased below (NB please choose only one)
  • You will be sent an exhibition entry form soon after your purchase which you then need to complete and bring with you with your exhibits
  • A spare exhibit can be brought to replace any sold item. This should be suitably wrapped and labelled
  • All artworks should have a sticky label on the back with the name of the artist, title of work, price and medium (3D works should have a label suitably attached)
