Huge thanks to everyone who has said hello, followed me on social media and bought a print or an original artwork from me this month. It is all so very important to an artist and I am so grateful for all your support.
The last few months have been a bit of a whirlwind, starting with the Borders Art Fair (Kelso) in March, followed quickly by Inception Art Show (Dalkeith Country Palace) and Glasgow Contemporary Art Fair (Kelvingrove) in May. Phew!
Inbetween all of that I have shown work in the White Fox gallery, the Heriot gallery, Battersea Art Fair and a key piece (still available for purchase) in the Royal Scottish Academy Annual Exhibition on Edinburgh’s Princess Street.
I still have a few pieces left on my available work page (but not much) and will shortly be showing with Heriot Gallery at Fresh art Fair Cheltenham and Colinton Arts and White Fox gallery for their summer shows.
Productivity may slow down over the next few months, partly because I need to lie in a darkened room for a few days and partly because I will be selling my house and studio in The Scottish Borders and hopefully getting myself a bigger studio (maybe two).
For up to date information about where I end up and future exhibitions please follow me on social media @gillwaltonartist or sign up for my email newsletter. you can do this on the bottom of every page on my website.
I will be exhibiting at Glasgow Contemporary Art Fair again after a three year gap.

‘Breathing’ has been accepted into the Royal Scottish Academy Annual Exhibition
For the second time within a year I have a piece hung in the Royal Scottish Academy galleries in the heart of Edinburgh. Visit the exhibition HERE.
I had a wonderful weekend at Dalkeith Country Palace last weekend. It was a collection of over thirty of the best contemporary British artists curated by the estate of the Duke of Bucchleuch. He himself bought one of my Breath Series drawings last year. Another of my pieces made it into the family this year, what an honour!
I love participating in the show and am hoping to be invited back in September.
I am delighted to say that one of my favourite and most meaningful drawings has been selected to hang in the Royal Scottish Academy galleries. This is my second time in the gallery within a year and the honour is not passing me by. The exhibition has many of Scotland and the world’s best artists alongside mere mortals like myself.
‘Breathing’ is available to buy from the exhibition. The RSA are part of ‘Own Art’ scheme so it is possible to pay in 10 interest free instalments of £95.
