About Us



Craigard Gallery is a small family run business, established in 2014 in the heart of Wigtown, Scotland’s National Book Town. Named after the building “Craigard” in which it resides, it is one of the region’s leading contemporary private art galleries. Managed by printmaker Sarah Stewart, the gallery seeks to promote the works of emerging and established professional artists. Craigard hosts a diverse but carefully curated programme of some of the finest contemporary artists and craftspeople. Recent exhibitors include Ruth Brownlee, Hazel Campbell, Clare Dawdry, Pamela Grace and Gregor Henderson.

The gallery also stocks a small selection of art books, both new and second hand; art materials; beautifully illustrated children’s books and gifts. 

The gallery’s physical exhibition space has remained open by appointment only since coming out of lockdown in July 2020. Behind the scenes we have been developing our online digital presence and hope to continue to support our artists and customers through these platforms while we prepare to reopen later in the year. In the meantime we have exciting plans ahead as we make our space more accessible to those with additional needs. We are also developing a monthly workshop programme which we look forward to announcing in the near future.

Wishing you all the best of health and wholeness,

Sarah and Family x
