Border College Visit!

Today we have been visited by a lovely group from Borders College, Galashiels. All smiles and laughter, they were a wonderful breath of fresh air, permeated with a ray of sunshine and a touch of class.
We love all our guests to the gallery, especially those who come with a smile to share and a passion for happiness. Thank you so much for your visit, we look forward to seeing you again!
Lovely art, lovely people; what a great mix.


Working in the Community

The Art House Scotland has a clear vision of its place in the community, recognising that art, which should be accessible to everyone, is a powerful tool for positive change, one which can be used to build a stronger and more cohesive community.

Community Programme

The gallery’s flexible community programme includes: ‘studio days’ – to mentor emerging artists; individual painting classes, which, in today’s hectic world help people to de-stress and the use of art to support the wellbeing of ex-service personnel.

Its wide-ranging work with young people, who may for many reasons find themselves marginalised, is designed to stimulate creativity and increase confidence allowing them to learn new and valuable skills.

Local and National Projects

The gallery is also proud to give their time and energy to support a range of local and national charitable projects.

Since its inception it has supported over 500 projects including:

Of particular significance to Tony, as one of the founder members, is the gallery’s involvement in Crossing Borders, an organisation dedicated to bringing, “artists and craft makers from the Scottish Borders together to shout out loud for creative talent in the area…”
