  • Happy New Year!


    It’s nearly time to open again for the year. We enjoyed a very happy family Christmas then took off west for a week, taking in the New Year on wild and windy Skye, making the most of this sublime island before summer crowds descend. 

  • Original gifts for Christmas


    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


    "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


    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


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

  • Chris Forsey RI — inspired by blood


    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


    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


    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


    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


    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.
