This Summer we will be introducing some beautiful new designs of jewellery which are both elegant and affordable for gifts or for that little treat you’ve been promising yourself!
Don’t forget that (gasp!) Winter will come quickly and should you be looking to use our lay-away option, now is the time! Lay-away means that you can start paying towards an item now over the next six months, ready for Christmas. Yes we did say Christmas 🙂
One of our newest artists to the Bute Gallery, Scottish artist Emma S Davis, will be exhibiting at our next Open Evening, on June 30th 7pm until 9pm. Emma’s reputation saw her first paintings sell within hours of display and her next works look set to do the same!
With such success, Emma will be exhibiting more works featuring local landscapes and seascapes of our very beautiful Isle of Bute.
Emma graduated from the Glasgow School of Art and exhibits throughout the UK and the US. As the daughter of two parent artists herself, Emma shares her own love of art with her two small children who shed fingerprints around her studio in the same way she did as a child herself.

Last month saw the first of several Open Evenings being held here at the Bute Gallery and we were delighted to have such a fantastic turnout! Lindsay Turk, our Solo exhibitionist was delighted to meet and chat with those who attended and to share in the excitement of the evening.
Our next Open Evening will be held on Saturday June 30th, and this will be a mixed exhibition, featuring work by Emma S Davies, Ryan Mutter, Susan Grasekamp, Mika Mayovich, John Paul Reine and Debra Phillips.
Come along on Saturday evening for a glass of wine (we’ll be drinking it inside this time:) and some good banter with local artists and art lovers.
We are pleased to announce the first of a number of exhibitions which will be taking place over the Summer at the Bute Gallery. Our first is a solo exhibition by Lindsay Turk, a Perthshire graduate of Edinburgh College of Art. Her work shows a pre-occupation with the repetitions, rhythms and cycles within the natural world.
The exhibition will launch with an Open Evening on the 26th May, 7pm – 9pm, when you will have the opportunity to meet Lindsay and to browse a collection of her artworks, as well as fine jewellery and other pieces available at the Gallery. Wine and refreshments are free.
Even if you are new to art and haven’t considered owning an original artwork before, why not put the 26th in your diary, come along and enjoy the evening. We will also be open Sunday daytime.
New work by local artist Lynne Cameron is now on show at The Bute Gallery.
Her new piece ‘Beach Curves’ is inspired by the walking on her local beach (Scalpsie Bay) on the Isle of Bute and looking at the curves made by the sea and the tides, by the stream flowing from the fields and across the beach, and in the seaweed left behind.
Acrylic paint on canvas, 100 x 100cm, unframed 2018.
We are happy to introduce the work of artist Sarah Jack. Here at The Bute Gallery.
Sarah’s aim is to portray the reality of working life in the mills and fishing villages of nineteenth century Britain. Her paintings are at once intriguing and compelling, a new and exciting way to bring the past to life.
Her current works come from years of experimenting with texture.
Incorporating recycled materials Sarah creates a foundation by layering overlapping fragments of torn shapes and edges of paper and card, scrim, wire and sacking onto misshapen pieces of board. Pigment is applied, then wiped or sanded away to expose interesting lines and markings and allowing the buildings to be revealed.
