A busy programme of temporary exhibitions takes place throughout the year in our three temporary exhibition galleries. We welcome applications from all artists, whether emerging or well-established, to show their work in our galleries. We plan our exhibition programme a year in advance so our main exhibition spaces are currently booked up until the end of next year. However, there are occasional possibilities for hosting smaller and/or community exhibitions outside the main programme. For more information on how to exhibit at Buxton Museum visit:
