Coming Next . . . .

We are starting to turn our attention to our next exhibition and we are delighted to be having our second solo exhibition with Carol Dewart.

The Cat and the Canary
Carol graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1981 and has won several awards for her distinctive paintings.

It's a Wonderful Life
Her striking mixed media paintings feature the natural world, be it felines, birds or foliage.  But mainly they are about light and pattern.

While You Were Sleeping
Texture, pattern and light are the key elements in her paintings.  She says by changing any of these factors a painting can be constantly changing, evolving with little variation in the actual subject matter.


The Birds
Each work creates an individual world of it's own, as the cinematic titles illustrate.

A Night on the Tiles


This striking exhibition opens on 1 March and it's not just for cat-lovers!

Gordon Wilson

Gordon Wilson is one of the exhibiting artists in our current Affordable Art Show and as always, visitors to the gallery are loving his work.
On a Mission For Messages
Over recent years Gordon has become a very well known and respected artist both here in Scotland and all over the UK. Working predominantly in oils, his subject matter ranges from narrative portraiture and figurative paintings to dynamic landscapes.  His sheer love of Scotland comes through his bold and energetic paintings.
Steading Serenity
Born in 1968 in Glasgow, Gordon has spent the last 25 years in the art field as designer, picture framer, restorer and artist. Painting is his passion and through his hard work and dedication, well-deserved recognition has followed.

Biddy, Belter and the Red Shopper


Demand for Gordon’s work has grown steadily each year as his reputation increases. He has exhibited in both the Royal Glasgow Institute  and the Paisley Arts Institute, as well in leading galleries throughout the UK.

Stockiemuir Steadings
He has won several awards and has developed a strong following from many private collectors.  His work is now part of many large collections at home and abroad. 
His paintings also features in several corporate collections including Biocon, and Marks and Spencer. 
A Biddy at the Bow
We are lucky enough to be exhibiting these five beautiful paintings of his.  Two have already sold and I'm sure the rest will follow!

The Affordable Art Show continues until 22 February.
