ARTIST-LED GALLERY/PROJECT SPACE
Gallery is an artist-led initiative in the heart of Edinburgh,
which aims to provide professional
exhibition opportunities for artists.
Gallery is located within the Patriothall
Studios building in the Stockbridge
area of the city, and has over its 19
year history provided exhibiting opportunities
for hundreds of emerging and mid-career
Patriothall Gallery is on the ground floor of the former Co-op bakery building which Workshop and Artists Studio Provision Scotland (WASPS) converted into a studio complex in 1988.

the outset the Gallery was created,
directed and managed by the studio artists
for artists working in any media - locally,
UK wide and internationally.
In 2004 the artists in the building
won a campaign to save the building
from developers. In the main due to
a grant from the City of Edinburgh Council
the future of the building is now secure
and a committee of volunteer artists
is working on developing the gallery
exhibition programme and space.
It is a measure of the growth in the Gallery’s activities that it holds over 20 shows each year and is open to the public for 303 days a year.
An open access
life drawing group is
run on Tuesday mornings 9-12. Phone
0131 552 2067 for information.
Various classes on Mondays 7-9pm are often
held - new programme to be confirmed soon.
