Riverside Cafe Gallery

Curated in the busy setting of the Riverside Café, exhibitions showcase artwork from local and national contemporary artists and makers. Usually programmed around a year in advance, the schedule consists of a combination of solo and group shows. This includes invited artists; artists selected after submitting an Exhibition Proposal Form; or specially curated exhibitions with a theme and/or coinciding with a festival or event held concurrently at Farnham Maltings.

If you would be interested in exhibiting in the gallery please download the Riverside Café Gallery Information Pack where you can see details of past exhibitions, Riverside floor plan and the Exhibition proposal form.
