Open Day

Sunday 17 October, 2021

The BirdsNest Gallery is pleased to announce our first Open Day. 


We are confident that you will enjoy seeing our wide ranging collection of art works. Every picture tells a story, and this applies to every one of ours.  Our main gallery contains a highly-curated collection which includes works by Sir David Wilkie, Sir Robin Philipson, Barbara Rae, Victoria Crowe, William Crosbie, Peter Howson, Jack Knox and Jake Harvey among many others, spanning three centuries. 


There is also fascinating exhibition, “The Magic before Dawn”, featuring over 40 paintings by the Scottish artist Colin Hay, in our other exhibition space and studio. 


This unique flat was designed by the engineer Robert Stevenson [famous for building the bell Rock Lighthouse] and is in an A-listed building. It was built above a bank for the bank manager to entertain visitors in the spacious reception room. This is now our main gallery which still retains the original design and decor.    

We will welcome you from 11AM to 4pm with coffee, tea and cake. There will be regular tours and related visual displays in our mini cinema.
