“Fantastic, quality gallery. Something for everybody.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

This friendly gallery has the most superb selection of quality art and craft work from artists and makers across the country. Exhibitions change every month or two so there's always something new to see.. The paintings are expertly hung, and sculpture, crafts and jewellery well placed. The price range will suit most pockets. Anything from a card or book right up to works by top Scottish artists. Knowledgeable staff, courteous and friendly. Own Art available to spread costs of a purchase if required. There's a website too if you want to see what's on offer. The best gallery we found in the artists town of Kirkcudbright, and in the South of Scotland.

“Openings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I'm an openings groupie here it's a great chance to meet and talk to the artists...I haven't bought anything here (although every time I see something to covet)...but that hasn't made any difference to the way I'm jwelcomed and included as an art lover.

“Lovely gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

I visit the gallery regularly. It is bright, attractive, has a good range of artists and pieces and I always find the staff so helpful and knowledgable The previous poor revue really surprises me.
I also receive regular updates about forthcoming events which is very helpful.

“Interesting, if overpriced, pieces, disappointing service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2011 via mobile

There are some interesting pieces at this gallery. However, we were very disappointed with the service. Although it was initially good, we were soon bumped by a more 'important' customer, who the assistant thought would spend more money and we were ignored thereafter. It's a shame that buying a piece of art should turn into such an unpleasant experience.
