Exhibiting with us

The Three Hares Gallery at the Cowper and 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 and the hire fee is £99 (£75 for February or December).  The Gallery receives 15% commission on any works sold.  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 placing leaflets in prominent places within Olney and surrounding villages.

At the current time, we have exhibition slots available for the months of MarchApril and September 2019.   If you are interested in booking one of these months, please email the Gallery Manager at for further information or if you would like to make arrangements to view the exhibition space.


The Gallery has been pleased to host artists exhibiting under Bucks Art Weeks (formerly Bucks Open Studios).  We are keen to continue this relationship with this event and welcome applications from Bucks Art Weeks’ artists seeking Gallery space for this year (June 2019). Please contact us at
