We are a collective group of professional artists from across Dumfries and Galloway. We are currently operating three shops, one in Kirkcudbright, one in Castle Douglas and one within the Mill at Gatehouse. All our shops are organised on a collective basis with all artists taking an equal share of the rent and we don’t charge commission.
In Kirkcudbright we mainly feature applied art because there are several fine art galleries in the town. In Gatehouse and Castle Douglas this is not so important and we feature the work of several painters alongside the applied art work.
To see which artists are showing work in each location please click on the shop in the left hand menu.

The Artists and Makers at PA Pop-up are celebrating!
njoy a glass of wine, share the scrumptious cake, and meet the artists and makers at PA Pop-up’s 3rd birthday party. Starts at midday. Browse a wide variety of beautifully crafted work and ask the artists about their work.
Run by a co-operative of Dumfries and Galloway artists and makers, each selected for the quality of their work, it offers a vibrant collection of beautifully crafted ceramics, glass, illustration, jewellery, metals, paintings, paper, photography, prints, textiles and wood.
PA Pop-up started 3 three years ago, initially intended to open for a few weeks in summer. It was so successful, that there are two more shops in Kirkcudbright and Castle Douglas. The quality of the work, and friendliness of the artists have contributed to it’s continued success.
