About us – Red Door Gallery

So just a few words about us ….

The Red Door Gallery is a creative gallery and art space, championing affordable art work and proud to be celebrating our 12th year in the Edinburgh art scene (well done us!).

We provide a small but perfectly formed exhibition space for emerging and established artists who demonstrate natural talent, ambition and show the same passion that we have for new and exciting artwork. Most of our artists are Scottish or from the UK and we can pretty much guarantee that our artwork and design led products are not mass produced, but lovingly made by genuinely inspirational, quirky, witty, artistic and creative individuals.

Nicola Brooks (Creative Manager of The Red Door Gallery) is our creative heartbeat – Nicky has immersed herself in the local Edinburgh art scene for many years with an instinctive nose for the next big thing.  She always pushes herself with new art projects, exhibitions, workshops and constantly renews the face of the gallery with ever more imaginative and frequently changing wall and window displays.

Our gallery team also includes the wonderful Lindsey, Ashley and Evelina, all practising artists /designers in their own right (check out Lindsey Brown’s work in our shop). Behind the scenes is Jason (who changes all our light bulbs and to his credit does other stuff) and our ‘super quick’ Kathryn (accountant) who makes sure that all our lovely artists and suppliers are paid on time! We strive to be friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable and professional and hope that you find us to be so!

Most of our artwork is really quite affordable (one of our principle goals) and we find our customers range from avid collectors to casual art browsers.

A final word, a very big ‘thank you’ to all our customers for our success to date and we hope that we will continue to be a go to store for your art prints, creative gifts and quirky design products. [hr]

Online shop to buy art

With the success of our Red Door Gallery ‘bricks and mortar’ shop in Edinburgh, it was a natural progression to open our virtual doors through our ‘online shop’.  We sell contemporary artwork from predominantly British artists (from digital prints, editioned screenprints to originals), artists books, badges, cards, jewellery and all the bits in between on our online store. This is an exciting ongoing project with no physical boundaries and we are constantly excited to meet new Red Door Gallery customers from around the globe.

We have recently upgraded The Red Door Gallery on-line store and for those of you who cannot come to see us in person you can happily shop till your hearts content with over 1500 products now available. Even our loyal Edinburgh customers are now choosing to shop with us online and picking up their goodies in store (remember to select the ‘pick up in store’ option at checkout).

We are so pleased to share with you and ship our lovely art prints, precious jewels and unique handmade gifts around the world – we promise to keep our on-line shop fresh, vibrant and to offer as many of our goodies as possible. If there is something you have seen in our Red Door Gallery store, but can’t seem to find online, feel free to call us on 0131 477 3255 or email us at shop@edinburghart.com and we will be happy to help.

Not that we are given to blowing our own trumpet, but I simply can’t resist sharing this feedback (Nov 2013) from a very happy on-line shopper (brings tears of joy to our eyes:) : –

“… I would just like to send a quick thank you for the outstanding service you provide from your gallery. Not only did my items arrive the next day but they were packaged safely with ingenuity and care. On top of that the little things such as hand written thank you on the invoice and follow up email are just a lovely touch. The world be a better place if all online market vendors would pay the same care and attention to its customers. I don’t live in Edinburgh and hence can’t get in to browse your fantastic gallery as much as I’d like but the service you provide for online shoppers is as friendly and personal as that of the store. So a very kind thanks again …” 

Happy shopping from The Red Door Gallery Team
