Glasgow

 

 Glasgow has an excellent selection of well renowned venues, many of which will support new artists looking for their first opportunities to exhibit, as well as many other venues which operate on a grass roots level.

 We are currently updating our list of Glasgow venues and will be adding more shortly!

Cass Art - With stores all across the UK, this art shop also provides venues, well positioned in the heart of many large cities, including their Glasgow branch. 'We’re committed to ensuring that artists have a platform to be seen by all in a model that encourages the contemplation of artworks in a calm, open and most importantly accessible environment. All our spaces are free to hire and we don't take any commission on sales made.'

CCA - Situated within Central Glasgow, the CCA offers a number of opportunities to artists. Although a well established and highly respected venue, they are open to applications from creatives within their early stages of their careers. 'We’re really open to new ideas, and invite anyone who has a suggestion for an event to get in touch. You can simply email us to start a conversation and we do not have a formal application process. We encourage our open source programme partners to offer events which are accessible, free or low cost to attend, or use a sliding scale model of pricing'
