Hunt begins for Kirkcudbright Art Gallery architect

  • Comment

Dumfries and Galloway Council is on the hunt for an architect for a new £1.2 million art gallery in Kirkcudbright

The project will transform Kirkcudbright town hall into a new ‘nationally significant’ museum documenting the coastal settlement’s historic arts scene.

Between 1850 and 1950 Kirkcudbright became a popular destination for artists – such as the painters Charles Oppenheimer and David Gauld – who were drawn by the coastal town’s light.

The new gallery will exhibit works from the council’s art collection including paintings by the Glasgow Boys and Samuel Peploe of the Scottish Colourist movement.

The winning team will provide architectural, quantity surveying, cost consultancy, CDM, building services engineering and structural and civil engineering services up to RIBA Stage L.

Practices which are members of recognised Conservation Accreditation Schemes with experience of Heritage Lottery Funding applications are encouraged to apply.

The Deadline for requests to participate is 20 October.


The project has been re-tendered and the new deadline for applications is 24 November
