Owner description: Fraser Gallery St Andrews opened in April 2008 and is located in the ground floor of a traditional townhouse in the centre of St Andrews. The gallery is a fresh, stylish, welcoming space which occupies the whole ground floor of the property and is arguable one of the best gallery spaces in Scotland. In the open plan, yet intimate setting with extensive hanging space, it has a large, varied and constantly refreshed selection of original art including work by George Devlin, Francis Boag, Alberto Morrocco, Jack Morrocco, John Kingsley, Marj Bond, Malcolm Cheape, David Mackie Cook and Joe Fan, amongst others. The Gallery shows a mixed exhibition all year ‘round with two major solo exhibitions each year which have included “sell out” exhibitions for Scottish artists, Francis Boag, Robert Macmillan, Malcolm Cheape and John Kingsley, PAI.Roderick Fraser, the gallery owner, is a fourth generation art dealer with over 30 years experience in owning and managing galleries in Dundee and Edinburgh. His family business dates back to 1862.The galleries are unique, intimate spaces in the heart of St Andrews showcasing some of the very best of contemporary Scottish artists.

“Contemporary art gallery that punches way above its weight”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

For a small town, St Andrews has got a lot of first rate independent retailers, and the Fraser gallery easily ranks alongside the best of Edinburgh and Glasgow. Really good contemporary Scottish artists, and big works too. Mainly pictures (I'd like to see some more sculpture), but always worth a visit. The owners are knowledgeable and welcoming, its clear they enjoy talking about the artists and their works, and there is never any pressure to buy.

“The Fraser Gallery - a true asset for the town of St Andrews”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

There's always a friendly atmosphere at the Fraser Gallery. You're welcome to take your time to view the colourful, frequently changing exhibitions. The art on display ranges from the figurative to the abstract. Scottish artists are often represented, some local, and at the well-advertised previews may come along to discuss their art with guests. A visit to the Gallery is highly recommended.

“Proper art gallery!”
Reviewed 31 October 2013 via mobile

A stimulating fine art gallery.

Not huge or overstuffed but very worth a visit.

Aint full of bric a brac or basically gifts which loads of galleries do. Just focused on the visual arts.
Expensive...you not spendin your pocket money here, but professional and expensive feeling.

A good chance to see contemporary 'greats' and tomorrow's collectables.
Would recommend
