Arran Art Gallery is for people from all over the world that have an affinity with the beautiful Isle of Arran.

The gallery’s main aim is to promote the island’s artists to visiting tourists from the British mainland and to all those people all over the world that have an affinity with the beautiful Island of Arran.  

In addition to local artists, the gallery exhibits many of Scotland’s well-known artists.  We also pride ourselves in the discovery of exciting new talents, especially those artists living on or linked to the Isle of Arran.
Arran Art Gallery holds the largest stock of original art to be found on the island; and possibily the largest in Scotland.  If the pieces you wish to view are not actually exhibited on our walls we will be delighted to display them from our extensive stock.  At present approximately 80 Scottish artists are represented at our gallery and online. This number will continue to evolve over time, so please remember to keep visiting our website to see the latest works.

We would also like to share a short video of the gallery so you have a look around.  

Scottish art is being recognised more and more as being outstanding both within and outwith the UK.  We hope we can help you discover the contemporary artist whose work will enhance your collection or perhaps inspire you to purchase your first piece.  Many of our artists are happy to accept a commission.  If this is of interest, please do not hesitate to contact us.
