The Annan Gallery, situated in the West End of Glasgow, is Glasgow’s oldest gallery, tracing its roots back to 1855.
The original company T. & R. Annan & Sons was established by Thomas Annan in 1855 as a photography studio and was official photographer at the Glasgow Exhibitions of 1888, 1901 and 1911. They received a Royal Warrant from Queen Victoria in 1889.
Over the years, T&R Annan & Sons also moved into fine art sales and promoted in turn each of the major Scottish Art movements and their predominant artists - a tradition that carries on today.
The Annan family took the decision in 2006 to pass on the fine art side of the gallery to new owners but preserving the Annan name to maintain the rich reputation and history of the gallery.
It is this gallery in its current form that was purchased by Scott and Susan Bennett in 2017 to run alongside their other gallery, The Strathearn Gallery in Crieff which they took in in 2013.
Recognising the strength and depth of talent of artists in Scotland, Scott and Susan feel it important to support and showcase these artists to the best of their ability and the Strathearn and Annan Galleries are today recognised and known as leading galleries for the exhibiting and promoting of the very best of Scottish Art, with a worldwide client base.
Both galleries run programmes of regularly changing exhibitions and as with The Strathearn Gallery, the Annan also exhibits glass, ceramic and sculpture from many of the top artists ensuring there’s always a piece of art for everyone.
Be assured of a friendly welcome and informative, helpful service whether you call in to the Gallery or reach us through the website.
