Ottersburn Gallery is a bright and airy town centre gallery under new ownership. Having reopened on 1st April 2017, Ottersburn Gallery is now exhibiting the work of local artists in its bright and open gallery space. The building which was originally a coachhouse has been a gallery under various owners for many years and is well known in Dumfries for its gallery space and framing facilities. New owners Sean and Kate McKay exhibit and promote the breadth of Dumfries and Galloway's creative talent. There is a programme of events throughout the year which includes exhibitions, poetry reading and evening viewings. Sean and Kate also plan to host workshops, talks and music events. Ottersburn retains its long history of framing excellence by offering a personalised service to artists and art lovers alike.
