Established in 1978, Travelling Gallery presents two 16 week contemporary art exhibitions a year which tour remote, rural, urban and suburban communities throughout Scotland. 

We're not currently on tour, check back later in the year for our next tour.

Collection Highlights:

Our exhibitions display exciting and experimental artistic practices, representative of current social and political themes in both the International and Scottish visual arts sector. Each exhibition is accompanied by a strong creative learning programme of artists talks, workshops and events.


Travelling Gallery is a much loved, established and respected visual arts organisation that is committed to making art inclusive and accessible for all.
