Kirkcudbright Artists Town

Kirkcudbright, Dumfries and Galloway

Around 1850 and 1950 Kirkcudbright was an established artists colony. The quality of the light is said to have brought the artists to Kirkcudbright. However, there can be no doubt that a strong attraction would have been working together in the pursuit or art. Kirkcudbright is again becoming established as an Art Town. There is plenty to experience for art lovers, the Tolbooth Art Centre is open all year and a good place to research the history of art in the town. There are modern galleries (Harbour Cottage, The Whitehouse and High Street galleries) and open studio events in Kirkcudbright – most notably Spring Fling over 3 days in May and the four day Arts & Crafts Trail from Friday 4th – Monday 7th August.
