Beautiful Glass

I have been looking for special glass for exhibition at the gallery, and here it is!


Stunning bowls and perfume bottles.

Each piece is free blown, and hand finished to the highest quality.

There are a wide range of designs, colours and finishes.

Each one is more beautiful than the next!

And there are many more available at the gallery.

But I don't think they will be there for long!

 Thanks for reading!

The Preview

Our new exhibition 'The Ayrshire Four' previewed this Sunday. As I was hanging the exhibition, I got that shiver of excitement as I could see the contrasting works were hanging very well together, and the gallery was yet again being transformed into something new.


I was really looking forward to seeing how this mix of artists would be received, and I am delighted to say it went off with a bang!

Ayrshire artist Sandy Murphy RSW RGI PAI is considered to be one of Scotland's finest painters and it was he who wanted to exhibit alongside three artists who also hail from Ayrshire - James Cosgrove PAI, Michael Durning PPAI and Euan McGregor.

We had one of our busiest previews to date and I want to thank all the art-lovers who came and enjoyed the opening of this exhibition. There was a fabulous atmosphere and even the sun came out to play.

I want to thank all four artists again for the beautiful works that have come together to create a stunning exhibition.

This exhibition runs until 28 October and the paintings can be viewed on line at:
