Milton Room Showcase 

The Milton Room provides space for 1 – 15 works of art at one time. The primary function of this space is as a meeting room, but has a track hanging system that can accommodate 2D artworks. This unique two-story room features a number of large windows providing natural light. It was built in 2009 as part of the Town Hall expansion, and blends historic and modern architecture.

While the Milton Room has been designated as a public meeting room, featuring the work of local artists, both amateur and professional, it aims to increase the profile of the arts in the community and to introduce the public to the talents of Milton artists. The Milton Room has a primary use as a meeting room and viewing of exhibitions will be limited as permit holders will have first priority.

The gallery welcomes artwork from individual artists, artist collectives, art and historical societies, independent curators and other organizations. Exhibitions run for a duration of three months, beginning in September, December, March and June. 

Rental fee includes the following services:

  • Support installing artworks
  • Printed labels of artworks
  • Promotion through website
  • Artworks insured for the duration of the exhibition
  • Opportunity to host an opening reception (additional fee may apply)

The rental fee is $30.


All applicants are required to submit an online application form and support materials, which are reviewed by a representative of the Fine Arts Society of Milton. For additional inquiries please contact us
