The Smithy Gallery Collection

We are busy getting our new exhibition ready for its opening on Saturday.  This is a unique exhibition, The Smithy Gallery Collection.
This exhibition consists of many beautiful works by some of the gallery's favourite artists.  These are the paintings that we hold onto and won't let go!
In 2012 we held a memorial exhibition for the late Carlo Rossi.  One of our favourite artists and a friend of the gallery.  This was the last of three memorial exhibitions held in Britain, organised by Carlo's sons. 

They kindly allowed us to hold onto a few of the smaller painting and the rest of the paintings were distributed amongst the family.  We are delighted to have this opportunity to exhibit these once again.


Another nonagenarian and supporter of the gallery is David M Martin RSW RGI.  David has shown with the gallery since we opened over eight years ago and we have built up a beautiful collection of small to large works of his.  We think David is one of the best painters in Scotland.

Another artist in our special collection is the inimitable Joyce Gunn Cairns SSA VAS.  Edinburgh artist Joyce has become one of Smithy Gallery's most cherished artists.  Deeply talented and exciting, her exhibitions have become a huge draw to all around.
Also part of the collection are works by Joe Hargan PAI and George Grant.  Each artist in the collection has been part of the gallery's history and we are always incredibly proud to be able to exhibit their works.

The Smithy Gallery Collection dates are 8th to 30th March.

Thanks for reading!
