The project has recently welcomed two new members - Howard Fothergill, one of whose paintings is shown here, and Sandra Veitch, who paints and makes jewellery as well. See their profiles on the Gallery page.
The co-operative consists of around 20 artists who show a range of paintings, drawings, prints and cards, as well as craft items and jewellery, in the Lockerbie High Street gallery. Members staff the gallery on a rota basis, with each member covering four days or eight half-days in a 10-week period.
Are you an artist or a craftsperson? Opportunities sometimes arise to join the Project Art Lockerbie co-operative. If you are interested, let us know via the Contact link or download an application form and full details here: documents/membership.pdf or here: documents/membership.doc
The gallery is shared with local photographer George Porteous and is normally open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10am to 4pm, and Tuesday and Saturday 10am to 1pm.
The gallery has been awarded three-star tourist shop status by Visit Scotland/Scottish Tourist Board, a move which we hope will help attract more visitors to the town.
