Overview

Fraser Gallery St Andrews opened in April 2008 and is located in the ground floor of a traditional townhouse in the centre of St Andrews. The gallery is a fresh, stylish, welcoming space which occupies the whole ground floor of the property and is arguable one of the best gallery spaces in Scotland. In the open plan, yet intimate setting with extensive hanging space, it has a large, varied and constantly refreshed selection of original art including work by George Devlin, Francis Boag, Alberto Morrocco, Jack Morrocco, John Kingsley, Marj Bond, Malcolm Cheape, David Mackie Cook and Joe Fan, amongst others. The Gallery shows a mixed exhibition all year ‘round with two major solo exhibitions each year which have included “sell out” exhibitions for Scottish artists, Francis Boag, Robert Macmillan, Malcolm Cheape and John Kingsley, PAI.Roderick Fraser, the gallery owner, is a fourth generation art dealer with over 30 years experience in owning and managing galleries in Dundee and Edinburgh. His family business dates back to 1862.The galleries are unique, intimate spaces in the heart of St Andrews showcasing some of the very best of contemporary Scottish artists.

Always a pleasure to visit, this gallery has a stable of artists of the middle range of note of the lively, colourful, painterly kind without being too cutting edge.
