Kirkcudbright Galleries


Visit our nationally important art collection and learn the story of the Kirkcudbright ‘Art Colony’ through an audio-visual show “The Artists’ Town” and a permanent display of some of the best Kirkcudbright paintings in our collection. The complete redevelopment of the 19th century Town Hall is now home to an art gallery, which retains the Kirkcudbright Artists’ Collection, of recognised national significance, on permanent display. The exhibition includes works by artists such as John Faed, Robert Sivell, Edward Atkinson Hornel, Jessie Marion King and Samuel John Peploe.
