Hello, Victoria here!
I'd love to tell you a little bit about my gallery.
It was opened on the 7th of June 2019. The space definitely looks very different from how it did when we found it, and with the help of one of my great friends Connor, we managed to make it into a lovely space to display all this amazing work.
My initial aim for opening the gallery was to make a space where anyone would feel welcome and make sure there was something for everyone.

The Artwork

I'm proud to have a lovely collection of artwork on display. Most of the artists and sculptors are local to us here in Scotland but I have blended this with artists which we also show in our gallery in Linton. Making for a diverse mixture of talent on display.
Along with the collection of original paintings, I also have a variety of prints, as well as ceramics and glasswork from local creators. So if it's a gift or a little something for yourself, I'm sure there will be something that takes your eye.

This year I will be attending some local Art fairs under our traveling name of Linton 59, Where myself (Victoria), and My Father (Karl), get to work together to show the artwork that we are both so passionate about.
