Prints and Paintings Guide 2016
Buying Art Welcome to our selection of some of the best original prints and paintings from the Castle Gallery for 2016. We hope that you will agree that these works of handmade, original art offer superb quality at a not unreasonable price. We are particularly proud to be able to present etchings and screenprints by some of the 21st century’s most iconic Scottish artists including Will Maclean, John Byrne and Victoria Crowe in our ‘Rare Collectable Prints’ section. Included in this catalogue is a taster for some of our solo shows in 2017, including the work of Edward Macmillan, Mychael Barratt and Ian McWhinnie. Also, looking even further ahead to 2019, the etchings of Karolina Larusdottir will form a major solo exhibition celebrating her 75th birthday. Karolina has now retired and so the extensive collection of prints that we hold will diminish and once they are gone, they are gone! Some of our savvy customers have discovered that if they purchase their prints and paintings using the Own Art scheme, that they can spread the cost of Christmas over 10 months, interest free. Please ask a member of the gallery staff for more information if you too would like to take advantage of this excellent scheme or check it out online at ownart.org.uk.
