Lighthouse give artists exhibiting in all our galleries the best experience we can. Showcasing art and championing artists in our building is important to us and we want you to have a rewarding and successful time with us. The spaces have several unique aspects that support this, such as extended opening hours in the evenings, fantastic views of the Purbeck Hills and excellent natural lighting, augmented by down and ceiling lights. Moreover, support for exhibitors includes promotion through our marketing, hanging of work, and advice and friendly support.

We have several well-equipped Visual Arts Spaces available to hire across Lighthouse and a focal white wall gallery space which is curated with work shown by invitation.

Please feel free to approach us as a group or as an individual artist to discuss your exhibition ideas. If you have any queries please contact our Visual Arts department.

The studio is a laboratory, not a factory. An exhibition is the result of your experiments, but the process is never-ending. So an exhibition is not a conclusion.
