One Paved Court is run by artists for artists. We support artists wanting to create and participate in ambitious, challenging exhibitions and events.

We are dedicated to bringing art by a diverse range of artists to as wide an audience as possible and believe that everyone benefits from such an approach. We will actively promote diversity and eliminate unfair discrimination, ensuring that our space is as inclusive and welcoming as possible.

We run a programme of 3-week artist-led exhibitions, providing artists with an opportunity to show their work in a professional gallery setting, planned with the support of gallery staff. Artists will have use of our architect-designed gallery in the heart of Richmond town centre. The gallery is on the ground and first floors and has a shopfront onto a pedestrian lane off Richmond Green. It is light and domestic in scale, with an integral hanging system and specialist track lighting.

As an exhibiting artist we will showcase your work on-line, on our website, in our newsletter and on our social media. You will have access to our network of visitors who appreciate the chance to visit and exchange views.

We accept proposals in response to our regular ‘Open Calls’  on social media. Please do not submit a proposal at other times. Submissions are welcomed from solo or small groups of artists working in any media. Read more:

Our artist-led shows are based on a discounted fixed fee, which is a contribution to our overheads. Our philosophy is to give visitors the opportunity to engage directly with the artist, so attendance/invigilation by the artist is an important aspect of the show, and we give preference to artists who offer workshops.

If you are preparing to submit a proposal in response to an open call, please contact us for details of our current rates and Terms & Conditions. We may be in a position to offer a bursary in certain circumstances. Please discuss this with us in confidence.
