Welcome to Ottersburn Gallery

Our new look gallery and picture framing studio combines work by local regional artists with examples of picture framing.

The original works on show include many forms, from oil on canvas paintings to original artists’ prints, ceramic and textile. All are for sale along with our picture framing service. Choose framed pieces or unframed and we can make a frame to suit your liking.

Our picture framing service is available for the framing of a wide range of items, from certificates mementos and other keepsakes to original artwork on canvas, board or paper as well as fabric items such as cross stitches and tapestry.
To practicing artists who are actively selling their work we offer a discount scheme for our picture framing service.

We present a number of local regional artists here at Ottersburn Gallery, both in the gallery and here on our website.
Their work is displayed integrated with picture framing samples and are all available for sale.

Artist workshops often take place throughout the year, giving a chance for visitors to see artists at work and to even get their hands dirty by getting involved.
Use the link below to meet the artists, browse and purchase their work.

Patti Lean - workshop

It is advisable to make an appointment to come and browse in the gallery. Let us know what you are interested in as not all the pieces on show here are immediately available in the gallery, however we can arrange for pieces to be brought in for you to see.

Picture Framing

We offer an extensive range of picture frame types to artists, collectors and home furnishers and anyone wishing to preserve their family photos, mementos and other keepsakes. Our workshop is based in Nith Avenue, above the gallery, and our larger workshop located close to the town supports much of the work we do.

We take great pride in our work and our service to each customer is delivered with care and attention. We enjoy framing a variety of pieces, including artists’ original works and prints, mementos, medals and other various keepsakes preserving them for generations to come.
We hold a good range of mouldings on show in the gallery. From low cost wood mouldings to mid and high quality factory finished mouldings. We particularly enjoy creating hand finished frames from quality raw wood materials using paints, waxes, stains and gilding. Use the framing link below to be taken to regularly updated articles on our picture framing including hints and tips on how to pace your orders.

We are always happy to receive enquiries from customers at any time. If our normal opening times do not suit then do contact us to arrange a specific and more convenient time for you to bring in your pieces for framing.

Shop online

Our online shop can be used to buy local regional art from our represented artists and to order picture framing. To learn more about ordering picture framing please use the link below.
We do offer a delivery and collection service by our own dedicated van and driver for art and framing. Of course many of the items are fragile which we would not wish to trust to a van courier.
