Galloway Paintings

DAVID FARQUHARSON ARSA RSW 1840-1907 A Summer Day, Dalbeattie

Our Galloway Paintings exhibition opens on Saturday 1 August. Please join us for a glass of Pimms between 11am and 1pm.

We have such a lovely collection of paintings from artists who either lived or visited Galloway in the 19th and 20th century. This year we have an extensive collection of paintings by the Faed Family, spanning generations.

JOHN FAED HRSA 1818 - 1902 The First Bloom of Youth
Moniaive painter James Paterson RSA RSW 1854 - 1932 has an oil and a watercolour in the exhibition, both of Moniaive. We have found that the watercolour 'Autumn, Moniaive' was painted from Mill Dam at Dalwhat Water. The beautiful Paterson oil painting titled 'Moniaive' which belongs to the Hunterian Art Gallery in Glasgow is of the same area.
