  • Original gifts for Christmas

    5/12/2018

    Are you struggling to come up with ideas for Christmas gifts? What do you get that person who has everything. Few gifts are more memorable than an original painting, a unique print or a piece of studio pottery. In a throwaway society, art is a timeless gift which may become an heirloom.

  • JUST A CARD — the antidote to Black Friday

    21/11/2018

    "If everyone who'd complimented our beautiful gallery had bought 'just a card' we'd still be open.”

    When artist and designer, Sarah Hamilton, read this quote by the owners of a small gallery which had recently closed, it prompted her to set up JUST A CARD, a movement to encourage people to buy from designers and craftspeople, independent galleries and shops. 

  • Christmas Exhibition 2018 — preparations underway

    14/11/2018

    It’s the busiest week of our year as we prepare for our Christmas Exhibition opening on Sunday. We’ve been around the country collecting work, artists have been making deliveries, picture framers have been assembling frames, printmakers have been working their presses, ceramic artists have been firing kilns, sculptors have been modelling work and mince pie making is underway. 

  • Madeleine Hand — stories and connections

    19/09/2018

    Madeleine Hand tells stories and makes connections, connections between people and connections between people and the landscape. 

  • Chris Forsey RI — inspired by blood

    12/09/2018

    Chris Forsey’s first memory of drawing is with his grandad, who lived downstairs from him in London, when he was a boy. He would spend the morning with him and pestering his grandad for something to do, he gave him some paper that meat had been delivered in, and a pencil. 

  • Chris Forsey and Madeleine Hand — autumn exhibition

    29/08/2018

    We have had a glorious summer. Now the first hints of autumn are appearing as we prepare our new exhibition. Many artists enjoy the richness of the season after the brash light of summer.

  • Barbara Robertson — one of Scotland’s finest printmakers

    22/08/2018

    Barbara Robertson (Babs) sadly died this month, just days short of her 73rd birthday. Barbara was a superb printmaker, sensitive, observant, full of humour and wonderfully skilled. She was also warm, generous and great company.

  • A summer without swallows

    8/08/2018

    These wonderful warm languid summer days have made the garden a joy to be in but alas it has been tinged with more than a little sadness as an important aerial element has been missing. 

  • Dawnne McGeachy — Beaufort 12

    11/07/2018

    Dawnne McGeachy never tires of painting the sea. Her powerful seascapes have a visceral quality. Not for her, gentle waves lapping a quiet shore — the sea thunders and crashes in her intoxicating paintings.

  • Hanging the Summer Exhibition — not the Royal Academy

    27/06/2018

    Summertime and the livin’ is easy...so goes the Gershwin song. Well summer seems to have well and truly arrived this year with temperatures even in north east Scotland soaring into the high twenties. We always look forward to our Summer Exhibition as we take the opportunity to introduce new artists to the gallery.
