Qube presents a wide ranging programme of contemporary art exhibitions, which reflect innovation through print, graphic media and related art practices. Qube gallery’s annual programme includes exhibitions that have been selected from both open submission and by invitation. Qube develops art projects that reflect the aims of Qube Arts in a broad and challenging way.
- To improve quality of life through the arts
- Provide access to the arts in a rural area
- To use art to push the boundaries of people’s knowledge and experience
- To engage with the wider community and develop new audiences for art
A Gallery Advisory panel meets four times a year to view proposals. This panel is made up from a wide range of people with different arts experience both from within and outside the organisation. At these advisory panel meetings Qube will decide on the exhibition programme for a 12 month period. Qube welcomes exhibition proposals from artists and curators, groups and individuals.
