Project Art is now established in its new home. The former retail premises which housed our gallery for four and a half years have been sold. But that was not the end for our co-operative of around 17 artists and makers - we have moved just a few doors away in Lockerbie's High Street.

We have space in Elegance, a popular gift shop run by Lorraine McNay, and our work is now on show there.

Project Art's inaugural window display at Elegance

Project Art Lockerbie began life as a 10-week-only experiment, when George Porteous agreed to allow artists to showcase their work alongside his photographs in his former retail clothing shop. The experiment was a success and a variety of artists and makers from the region have shown and sold numerous paintings, drawings, prints, cards and craft items in the gallery.

We are continuing that success in the new premises, courtesy of Lorraine (below).
