Open Call for our 2019 Gallery Programme

Deadline Monday 5th November


Patriothall is an artist-led initiative in the heart of Edinburgh, which provides professional exhibition and project space for artists. The venue is located within the WASPS Studios building in the Stockbridge area of the city and has 2 large flexible gallery spaces with a high-quality lighting system. It is suitable for a wide variety of uses including exhibitions, installations, workshops, etc. As a non-profit artist-run organisation we want to offer space at a reasonable cost, so do not charge commission.

Our hire fee is necessary to cover upkeep and running costs.

Hire fees: 

  • £200 for a 17 day (inc 3 weekends) slot for use of full gallery, 2 spaces
  • £100 for a 17 day (inc 3 weekends) slot for a solo show using one gallery space, with two solo shows running at the same time.

Whilst the gallery team can offer email delivery and mailing list marketing support, promotion on the Patriothall website and social media, exhibitors will be responsible for promoting their own events and activities.

The Gallery is self-invigilation and self-installation. The Gallery is available for 17 day slots, running from the first Friday of each month to the third Monday (which includes 3 weekends).

What we are looking for:

We welcome applications from emerging or established artists, working in 2D, 3D, performance and digital media, as individuals or as groups. We are particularly keen to encourage an active programme of events in the gallery, so applications for exhibitions or projects that are supported by a programme of activities such as artist talks, workshops or programmes that form part of festivals, will be prioritised.


Applications should be submitted by email to and should include the following information:

  • Names(s) of the exhibitors.
  • Contact details of exhibitor(s) – email and mobile.
  • A brief proposal detailing the number of exhibitors and what you would propose to do in the space - as near as possible the form or theme the exhibition will take – e.g. 'exhibition of paintings' or more detailed installation/theme.
  • Images – minimum of 6 maximum of 10 digital images, preferably good quality jpeg’s. JPEGS must be labeled as follows:name_title_media_sizeincm_year.jpg. Please note poor quality images will make selection difficult. Video submissions should be provided as a URL link to the video.
  • Website(s) link(s) if you have one.
  • Details of supporting workshops, talks etc.

Please keep your submission concise.
