Stills has a gallery space in which it presents four exhibitions a year. The research and development towards our exhibition programme is delivered by a specialist team of staff up to three years in advance of each project.

We receive numerous requests for feedback on work and proposals for exhibitions at Stills but, due to limitations on staff time, we are only able to respond if we are interested in requesting more information.

If you would like to make us aware of your work or an exhibition proposal, please email to: ben.harman@stills.org We recognize that this is an important way for us to learn about work that we may not be aware of.

Artists' BookMarket with Fruitmarket

This year Stills is delighted to collaborate with our neighbour, The Fruitmarket Gallery, to co-host their annual Artists' BookMarket event. The BookMarket is a celebration of artists' book culture and will take place at both galleries, alongside a busy events and workshop programme. This is the first year Stills has hosted a BookMarket and we are particularly keen to create a space for photographic publishing at this event.

We invite publishers, book makers and artists' book organisations to apply for a stall, which costs £75 + VAT.

Artist' BookMarket is open 11am - 6pm on Saturday 17 February and Sunday 18 February. Expect an excellent weekend of book sales and discoveries. Be part of our strong selection of book makers, art publishers, illustrators and designers, and artists working with book forms.

To apply, please email us your CV, details of what you'd like to sell at the Book Market and a selection of up to 6 images of your work.

Email; rachael.cloughton@stills.org

Please also send us your website and telephone number. If you'd like to host a workshop during the event please also send details about this.

Deadline 5th December, 5pm
