Todmorden Art Group (TAG)
Todmorden Art Group is a not-for-profit organisation, dedicated to providing artists affordable exhibition space and creative studios. Based at Platform One Gallery on Todmorden Railway Station, we are centrally located with disabled access.
Todmorden Art Group is organised and run by its members on a voluntary basis and is self-financing.
There is an Open Exhibition and a Members Only Exhibition each year in the Gallery.
During the first weekend in November we hold an Open Art & Craft Show in Todmorden Town Hall. Members help running this event is gratefully received.
Membership to the group is £12 per year.
Members are requested to attend monthly meetings and contribute to the group according to their own personal abilities.
Meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. The minutes of the meeting will be emailed for your records – they can also be posted out if you have no email address, although this can be costly and naturally would affect our funds. It would be helpful if you could send or pass on any apologies for absence.
At our monthly meeting you are welcome to discuss any ideas that you feel would be beneficial to the successful running of the group.
There are eleven artists’ studios on the platform. These can be opened by arrangement with the artists. Please let Gallery staff know if you wish to be put on the waiting list for a studio. Membership of TAG is a pre-requisite and studio holders are required to assist with the running of the gallery and to attend monthly meetings in return for a subsidised rent. Applications are considered on merit in order to ensure the sustainability of the organisation.

The Gallery is run as a self-financing space and can be hired by anyone wishing to display art work, subject to availability. The Gallery accepts applications from artists and craftspeople as well as, schools, colleges and community projects.
The Gallery consists of two exhibition rooms, open from 11am until 4pm, Thursday through Sunday and is staffed by our member volunteers.
A exhibition room can be hired for a month with rates starting at only £75. This can be for a solo show or shared between a group of artists. All sales of exhibited work must go through the Gallery and are subject to a 20% commission.
