Tag: Festival in Glamis

I’m one of 5 artists with a working studio within rural Glamis Gallery’s beautiful cottages. I fell in love with glass in the late 80s and have created ever since. Over the years I have made tiffany lamps, traditionally painted panels, windows and public sculpture for indoors and out. Fusing was a later addition – bowls, panels and decorative items. I have many awards for painting (oil/pastel) and was shortlisted for the Scottish Portrait Awards in 2022. I will have work in progress in both media during the event, unframed 2D, leather books, glass and more… In addition to creating artwork, I administrate the gallery and am a mature student, DJCAD! Some of the images attached are college pieces and though not the work my customers have seen previously, gave me considerable enjoyment meeting the brief! Beside us, we have a cafe, gin tasting and a shady woodland spot for letting your dog have a stroll!

We are an artist-run gallery with an eclectic mix of contemporary Scottish art situated in the historical village of Glamis. We support many local artists as well as those further afield. The 5 cottages are full of character and beyond the main exhibition space we have 5 working studios with a large designated workshop/event space currently being updated. We have 2 painters, glass artist, textile artist and mosaics/wire artist working at various times during the week. Occasionally, musical instruments often echo through the building and some lively banter! Sculpture, paintings, glass, ceramics, wood, metal, mosaic, textiles and much more await you! Work is available to purchase from the studios whether the artist is present or not. All payments are taken at gallery reception and sales keep the project afloat and allow us to continue without applying for funding or restructure. Cafe and Gin Tasting within 100 yards, woodland walk and a short stroll to Glamis Castle. Well behaved dogs welcome!

Glamis Gallery

Since graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, in 1990, Jonathan Mitchell has developed a considerable reputation as a painter of the Scottish and more recently the French landscape, with his work collected by patrons both in the UK and internationally. Primarily working in oils, his painting is firmly within the Northern European tradition; both detailed and atmospheric. Visit Jonathan in his working studio in Glamis (situated within the Glamis Gallery complex) where you’ll have the opportunity to see see completed paintings as well as works in progress – and chat about all things “Art”!

I am one of five artists with a working studio within Glamis Gallery. I work with yarns and fabrics, and enjoy finding new ways to use them to create unique pieces. I spin my own yarns, some of which I use in some of my crochet pieces. I also add in reclaimed, discontinued and vintage yarns, which can range from laceweight rayon to carpet yarn. I create ecoprints by the Dirty Pot method, which does not include mordanting with chemicals in the process. Out of my Pot come lovely botanical patterns, on silk, wool and cashmere scarves and pashminas. I also use this to give new life to deserving garments that still has a lot of life left in them.
