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.

Below: a few examples of the work we show

The Five Sisters - oil painting - by Leona Hart

Torthorwald - watercolour - by Davina Halliday
