Theatre by the Lake has two gallery spaces, which are used throughout the year for a wide variety of exhibitions by professional and amateur artists, groups and societies.

Admission to both galleries is free from 9.30am most days. However the gallery spaces are occasionally closed to the public, so please check in advance with Box Office on 017687 74411 if you are making a trip specifically to see an exhibition. View below for current and upcoming exhibitions. If you are an artist interested in showing your work, click here for more information.


Keswick Society of the Arts - Theatre by the Lake exhibition
Keswick Society of the Arts is a well-established art society serving the town of Keswick and its surroundings. Members specialise in many and varied two-dimensional mediums from watercolour and oils through pastels and pencil, to felt work and collage. They welcome any artists who work in a 'flat' medium (rather than 3-D-like sculpture).
The Society is open to anybody who wishes to have a go, from total beginners to professional artists. All are welcome. KSA also runs a busy and varied series of talks, demonstrations and workshops which runs from autumn through to the beginning of summer when they have sessions 'en plein air' (outdoors). If you would like to join them or just want some more information, please visit their website www.keswick-society-of-art.com and leave them a message.

In the Friends' Gallery between 19 September - 29 October.

The Northern Collective
The Northern Collective is a group of artists who regularly come together in and out of the studio, to draw, to be inspired by and learn from each other. The disciplines of printmaking, sculpture, assemblage, textiles and painting are often blurred or realigned to create surprising and dynamic artwork. This first exhibition includes friends from Cornwall and Germany whose geography and insight add a further creative dimension.
This exhibition runs in the Circle Gallery from 10 October - 12 November.
