Affordable Art & Sculpture in a Beautiful Location
The Whitehouse Gallery is a contemporary art & craft gallery, based in the historic artist town of Kirkcudbright, SW Scotland. Now into our eleventh year, we can claim a solid reputation as one of the regions leading spaces for exhibiting top quality Scottish fine art and applied art & craft.
The aim of our website is to bring the selection of the work we are proud to show in our gallery, right to your home. Please browse our online gallery to purchase any of our pieces, with a wide range of facilities available including Own Art online, or just visit the website for news updates.
The Whitehouse Gallery is to spring to life in an explosion of colourful Fine Art and Applied Art & Craft. ‘Kaleidoscope II’ will run from 28th February to 25th April, with the preview opening starting from 11am on Saturday 28th February. All are welcome to attend, and will be treated to a complementary glass of fizz and handmade chocolates upon arrival.
This exhibition welcomes a handful of new Fine Artists to the gallery for the first time, alongside some of our more regular exhibitors.

Scott Naismith's unique approach to colour identifies the importance and accuracy of the CMY colour wheel and the truth about magenta, cyan and yellow as being the correct primary colours of painting. Scott illustrates this theory through his popular, ground breaking YouTube video 'The Truth About the Colour Wheel'
“I find myself inspired increasingly by the works of Turner, who created ephemeral atmospheric effects using large washes of liquid paint. Other influences include Henry Matisse, Francis Cadell, Glasgow boys: Guthrie Lavery, Henry... and Joan Eardley.”
