About us

Pitlochry Gallery Association for Arts & Crafts is a non-profit making organisation and commission from sales of work is donated to nominated charities. We do not have permanent premises but draw artists and craftspeople together once or twice a year to put on a mixed exhibition.

Once a year the monies raised from sales of work is disbursed. Donations are normally made to one local charity, one national charity and one international charity depending on those nominated by our members. In 2015 the charities to benefit from money raised in 2014 were the Abbeyfield Atholl Society (local Charity), the Tayside Cat Shelter (local charity)and Haemophilia Scotland (national charity) . Each of those charities received a donation of £625.

The principle behind Pitlochry Gallery (since 1968) is to foster and encourage creative artists within the community by providing a showcase for them. It was originally linked to the Pitlochry East Church under the guidance of Rev.Frank Martin until his retirement in 1990. Sadly, Frank died in 2004.

Some of our exhibitors are now outwith the immediate community but many have links to the area through family or friends. We are always looking to welcome new artists and crafters to the Gallery.
