Harbour Cottage Gallery: Annual Opportunity for Artists to Display Their Work

Every Summer, the historic Harbour Cottage Gallery in Kirkcudbright holds an open exhibition that offers a great opportunity for new and aspiring artists from D&G and beyond to get their work shown in a prestigious venue and offered for sale to the public.

The Open really is open in that work is not selected, so applying to enter comes without fear of rejection. Provided you meet some basic requirements, your work will be accepted into the exhibition.

Being in the Open can bring new opportunities. Each year, the Gallery will invite some artists taking part the Open each year to become Gallery Artists, who will then be invited to take part in prestigious Summer and Autumn exhibitions in the Gallery alongside established artists.

We are very keen to encourage artists who are new to exhibiting to take part in the Open, because we know that there are many talented artists whose work is not being seen.

If you are interested, please send a message to our organiser Alistair Hamilton at [email protected]. You will receive information about the exhibition and how to enter later in the year. If you are still unsure, give Alistair a call on 07970 825264 for an informal chat.

The Open will run from 5 to 17 July 2021. You will have to be available to drop your work off on 4 July and pick it up on 17 July.
