Sun Gallery
High Street
Newburgh

The Gallery opened in beginning of May 2006 and is the latest addition to the attractions and cultural life of Newburgh. The premises were for many years the town draper’s shop and latterly a carpet shop. Up until the opening of the gallery, this impressive property on the High Street had stood empty for more than 5 years. The shop, now painstakingly and imaginatively restored has reincarnated as"Sun Gallery"

 

 

Proprietor Nick Moncreiff, a local artist with strong family roots in the town, has realized his vision of a showcase for the many and diverse creative talents in the local area, and in Scotland as a whole.Nick has brought together an inspired collection of the very best paintings, sculpture, ceramics, glass art, jewellery, furniture, framing service and Art cards.

Sun Gallery has succeeded in presenting a range of original artworks which will have something to offer for all tastes.

Nick Moncreiff

Nick started his working life as an illustrator in an advertising studio in Covent Garden, London, but soon got caught up in the Kings Road scene and moved into the fashion business.

Nick always had family ties with Newburgh and spent many holidays here from childhood on, and in 1990 he moved permanently to Fife. He opened shops in Perth, St Andrews and Edinburgh, which he ran successfully for many years.

Sun Gallery is the realization of Nick’s vision. He first spotted the shop many years ago and always believed it could be a perfect space for a gallery, and as luck would have it, the premises became available, from then on Nick decided to turn his dream into reality.

“I have always been passionate about art and wanted to offer a showcase for the rich creativity and talent in the local area and throughout Scotland. Newburgh is a beautiful town and ideally placed, I could not imagine a better place to live out my dream.”
