Exhibiting with us

The Three Hares Gallery at the Cowper & Newton Museum gives a warm welcome to artists wishing to display their artworks with us.  To date, we have held exhibitions of watercolours, acrylics, oils, pastels, drawings, prints, photography and textiles, including tapestries and patchwork.

Exhibitions in the Gallery are for one month. The hire fee is £99 (£75 for February or December) and the Gallery receives 15% commission on any works sold (All hire fees and commission received goes directly towards the upkeep of the Museum).

During the summer months (May to August) it may also be possible to hold a preview/reception in our Courtyard/Gardens (for which an additional hire charge applies) so that you can entertain friends, family, fellow artists and members of the art community in order to promote your work.

We will assist you where we can with local publicity and provide you with contacts to bring your event to the attention of a wide audience.   We also promote Gallery exhibitions on our website and through social media and by placing leaflets in prominent places within Olney and surrounding villages.  We can also supply you with a media list to help you with your pre-exhibition publicity.

We are now open for bookings for 2020.  If you are interested in discussing holding an exhibition with us, or would like further information, please email the Gallery Manager at
