The Whitehouse Gallery is a contemporary art & craft gallery based in the historic artist town of Kirkcudbright, South West Scotland.
Opened in 2004, The Whitehouse Gallery has firmly established itself as a leading art gallery in the region, with a nationwide reputation for exhibiting top quality Fine Art and Craft from Scotland and the UK.
A brand new feature for 2016, the gallery is now over two levels. The downstairs space is light and airy, with a friendly and inviting atmosphere. There is access from within the gallery leading upstairs to three rooms, each filled with paintings, sculpture, ceramics, furniture and much more. The upstairs level offers a contrast to the main gallery space, presenting art in a more homely setting.
The Whitehouse Gallery has between 5-6 mixed exhibitions over the year, combining up-and-coming talents with some of the leading artists and makers in the country.
Besides paintings, The Whitehouse Gallery also exhibits sculpture, ceramics, wood & furniture, jewellery, glass, baskets, silver & metalwork, artist prints, artist books, cards and more.
The gallery is closed for the first few weeks of the year, although there is usually a member of staff in the gallery during this period who will be happy to help with any queries.
