Wall Space Offered to Artists!

Gary and Rebekah of Leaf & Bean a tea and coffee merchant in Montrose, will be opening on the 1st June and we'd love to showcase the work of artists from the North East on our walls with any sales made on a commission basis.

We feature many local products. Our coffee beans are roasted fresh locally, our preserves are made in Edzell, our artisan chocolates hail from Aberdeen and our heavenly fudge is handmade in Inverurie. Unfortunately, we couldn't find any local tea plantations....

If you are a North East artist and you are interested, then please send an email to We are fitting the shop out at the moment, so email is the most reliable contact method and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

Blairs Museum

Blairs Museum have been in touch and would like to call out to North East Artists...

Recently restored portrait of the young Bonnie Prince Charlie

We are already entered for the NEOS 2011 but would like to put out a call to
all artists that we are actually available as a venue for exhibitions all
year round as opposed to just that week. We welcome artists working with
different types of media, only mindful of the fact that as a Catholic
organisation it could not conflict with their policies. Previously, we have
had photographers, watercolourists and textile designers who use a large
display area at the back of a beautiful and ornate church. We are out of the
way (4 miles out on the South Deeside Road) but enjoy scenic and peaceful

Mary Queen of Scots costumes

We don't ask for a percentage of any sales, only a donation of a piece of
artwork which we can include in our annual raffle to raise money to keep the
museum open. As the curator is present all year round, weekdays between 0900
and 1500, the artist does not need to be 'in residence'. However, we would
welcome talks/working practice wherever possible.

Please contact Vikki Duncan, curator, on 01224 863767.
