Scottish Art Gallery Showcasing Scottish Fine Art and Paintings
Covering over 200 years of the best in Scottish fine art, watercolour and oil paintings, drawings and prints, Fidra Fine Art is based in North Berwick, East Lothian and currently displays work from a range of leading Traditional, Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary Scottish artists. Current artists include Matthew Draper, Simon Laurie, Davy Brown, John Bellany, George Birrell, Neil Macdonald, Alice McMurrough, Lesley Banks, Sir Robin Philipson and many more.
All of our art is sourced from practicing artists, prestigious art dealers and auctions across Scotland and the UK. Each piece is carefully chosen based on its condition, the artist’s reputation within the art world and its provenance.
At Fidra Fine Art, we have access to the best restorers and framers to guarantee that our customers get the painting they deserve. Our main aim is to offer our customers a varied selection of good quality Scottish fine art, many pieces with an East Lothian interest.
Our list of artists includes work by Patrick William Adam, Henry Wright Kerr, George Blackie Sticks, William Miller Frazer, William Walls and John Campbell Mitchell to name a few. Our list of more contemporary artists consists of John Houston, Andy Heald, Joseph Urie, Alan Connell, Jayne Stokes and Peter Howson.
We ensure the gallery is well stocked with a varied collection and are continually reviewing and adding new pieces. Our typical opening hours are from 12:00 to 17:00 every weekend, however we are more than happy to schedule openings during the week by appointment or if you are passing, just drop in.
Jock MacInnes RGI
Born 1943, studied Glasgow School of Art 1962-67. After a years travelling scholarship to Europe, Jock returned to a lecturing post at GSA where he remained until 1996. He has won numerous awards including the Colquhoun Memorial Painting Competition 1978 and the Scottish Drawing Competition at PAI in 1988 & 1991. He has had regular solo shows in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Ayrshire, London, Truro & Collioure, France. His paintings are recognised by his own developed style of mark-making on prepared gesso boards and canvases. The combined subject matter and technique are reminiscent of the works of his influencers; the early twentieth century European masters (Braque, Matisse & Morandi) and the St. Ives group artists (Ben Nicholson, William Scott & Alfred Wallis).
