Art Exhibition

Be part of our Community Art Exhibition for Medway Arts Festival 2023

The Moat House Coffee Shop is a community space in the heart of Rochester which seeks to support different groups in the Medway area. Having successfully worked with artists for the Medway Open Studios and Arts Festival (MOSAF) in previous years, for 2023 we plan to be part of it again with a Community Art Exhibition. The 9-day festival runs from Sat 1st to Sun 9th July 2023

Why join us?

  • Display up to three pieces of 2D artwork in our coffee shop

  • As part of a group show, your work will be seen by a larger number of people

  • The shop is open every day of the festival on a busy part of Rochester High St

  • There will also be space for each artist to sell cards and prints

  • Chat to visitors or show some of your creative techniques


  • All work must be 2D or able to be hung safely

  • All work must be your own original work or limited edition pieces

  • If selected, all artists will be asked to pay £10 towards our joint listing as a venue in the Art Trail Guide (however you are encouraged to also place your own individual listing)
