The Roger Billcliffe Gallery is Scotland’s largest private gallery, occupying five floors of an early 19th century building in the heart of Glasgow.
The Gallery opened in 1992, taking over the building formally occupied by the Fine Art Society plc where Roger Billcliffe had been Director since 1979. The Gallery now specialises in exhibiting the best of Scottish contemporary and 20th century painting and also displays a wide range of contemporary applied arts - ceramics, jewellery, metalwork, silver and glass.
Exhibitions change monthly and are primarily solo shows although group exhibitions are usually presented during the summer months.
The Gallery represents many of Scotland’s leading painters including Mary Armour, David Donaldson, John Bellany, Duncan Shanks, Leon Morrocco, David Martin, Gordon K. Mitchell, Christine McArthur, James D. Robertson, Glen Scouller, John Boyd, George Devlin and James Fullarton.
The Roger Billcliffe Gallery is a Craft Council selected gallery and contemporary UK and European designers include Hester van Eeghen, Erik Urbschat, Yasunori Watanuki, Alan Craxford, Liz Tyler, Catherine Hough, Katharine Morling, Gareth Mason, Kevin O’ Dwyer and Richardson & Ottewill.
The Roger Billcliffe Gallery is a participant in the Scottish Arts Council’s “Own Art” interest free loan scheme for loans up to £2,000.
