Kirkcudbright Gallery, Scottish & Contemporary Fine Art
The Kirkcudbright Gallery specialises in paintings from the Kirkcudbright School of Artists, paintings of Dumfries and Galloway and examples of work by Scottish Painters of the 19th and 20th Century.
The Town of Kirkcudbright in South West Scotland has been an inspiration to artists for many years. The unique quality of the light, easy access to the centres of population and the gentle rolling coastal landscapes have all helped establish it as a favourite haunt for artists. In its heyday it was known as the 'St. Ives of Scotland' due to its artistic colony.
The Kirkcudbright Gallery offers a range of works from the Scottish School of Painting, including work by some of its main artists. The international reputation now attached to Scottish Painting is growing and although it has always displayed its own distinctive style, its individual developments can be seen within the wider context of European Art.
