Previous Exhibitions

20th March - 18th April 2021

Jonathan Shearer Autumn into Winter

With the gallery premises still closed, we are continuing with our programme of exhibitions as planned online. This exhibition will be our first big Solo show of the year featuring over 50 new pieces by acclaimed artist Jonathan Shearer based on his experiences in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands.

Jonathan is a hugely talented artist who skillfully uses the paint to create highly textured, dynamic works which have an abstract quality. He looks to portray a moment in time with his works, spending days at a time immersing himself in the outdoors to give you the viewer a sense of actually being there and experiencing the beauty of the landscape.

Georgina McMaster 'Wildlife Watch' Solo Exhibition

As one of Scotland's foremost wildlife artists, Georgina McMaster is passionate about animals and their importance to the environment. Often choosing to paint those endangered such as bees, birds and the red squirrel to remind us of their plight, Georgina expands on this in this Solo Exhibition 'Wildlife Watch' to also bring in elements of the animal's natural habitat and the effect of the varying seasons.

As this is our first online exhibition, all works for this show will be published online at 10am on Saturday 25th April.


21st March - 19th April 2020

Beth Robertson Fiddes 'Light and Tide' Solo Exhibition

A recent move from Ullapool further north to Elphin in Sutherland has brought me even closer to some of my favourite sources of inspiration. With views of Cul Mor and Sula Bheinn literally on my doorstep and the, sometimes wild coast of Assynt only a short distance away.

I've had the chance to explore lochs, burns and rocky summits that I've never seen before and I feel very lucky to have settled in this special place.

I continue to be captivated by the unique quality of light in the north west highlands and islands no matter what the weather conditions are, there is always something new to find in this special landscape.

From the tranquil rock pools and shorelines of Iona and Eigg to the wild waves of Oldshoremore and Clachtoll, this exhibition reflects my ongoing fascination with the interaction between landscape, water, and the elements.

Jonathan Shearer Highland Journeys

The exhibition Highland Journeys is based on a series of excursions and adventures into the highland wilderness. From the high peaks of the Fisherfield mountains to the remote shoreline of Wester-ross.

Staying in bothies and camping in my tent enabled me to venture deep into some of the remotest regions of the highlands. Sometimes the expeditions involved fording rivers and long arduous climbs up spectacular mountains.

In this exhibition I hope to convey my experience of the wild places and translate the sublime beauty of the mountains,rivers and coastline of a truly spectacular part of the world.

North Coast Gems - Judith I Bridgland with ceramics by Anne Morrison

One of Scotland’s most vibrant landscape painters, Judith uses bold, vigorous, rhythmical strokes of impasto paint combined with delicate brushwork to give an exciting texture and a sense of abstraction to her work. This vivid collection of works is based on Judith’s travels on the North Coast 500 as she has been inspired by the breath taking variety of astonishing mountains, rugged coastlines, and isolated moorland on the road, as well as Scotland’s heritage and history and this is reflected in her work. Judith’s work will be complemented with works by one of the country’s most gifted ceramicists, Anne Morrison.


28th April - 27th May 2018

Georgina McMaster - All Creatures Great and Small

We are delighted to be exhibiting our 4th solo show of Georgina’s work since taking on the gallery and look forward to welcoming her back to what is always a busy and very popular show.

Georgina is one of the country’s top wildlife artists and no-one can match her bold and expressive animal paintings. Every work captures the colours, character and life of each animal in a way others cannot match meaning Georgina’s work is highly prized among collectors worldwide.

Having had a baby girl in January 2017, Georgina’s recent study trips have been closer to home but that has not restricted the range of animals she has painted. This solo exhibition is a fantastic opportunity to see an eclectic range of Georgina’s most recent work, capturing some wonderful depictions of animals. She has fun with the titles of each painting, sometimes giving them a name that reflects their personality and other times it will be a topical theme, a place or even a title from a song.
