The Gallery

The Gallery at The North Wall serves a dual purpose, both as an art gallery with regularly changing exhibitions throughout the year, and as a foyer for the theatre. There are three main walls of varying dimensions, plus two smaller areas around a central stairwell – all dimensions can be found on the floorplan, downloadable below. All downstairs walls are made of white-painted MDF, suitable for a wide variety of hanging methods. Smaller-scale or more intimate work is also occasionally programmed into the upstairs foyer, with certain restrictions owing to décor.

Opening hours: Mon – Fri: 10am-4pm, Sat: 12pm-4pm
Closed: Sun and Bank Holidays

Applying For An Exhibition

Most exhibitions at The North Wall last three weeks. The gallery is programmed by Nicky Laird, Gallery Manager. There is a hire charge to exhibit in the gallery, further details of which are discussed upon application. All exhibitions are subject to a selection process, and are programmed in line with our aim in the gallery – to promote visual contemporary artists living in Oxfordshire.

If you wish to apply for an exhibition slot, please complete the downloadable form below, and send it in the first instance to Nicky Laird on, with as much additional information as you consider relevant, (extended proposal, artist CVs etc.) and, crucially as many images of the work you wish to display as possible. Applications may be in any format, hard copy or electronic, with images on paper, disk or provided as website links.
