Artery Gallery's 10 Year Anniversary! 2004 to 2014

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a lovely holiday season and enjoyed your Christmas gifts from Artery Gallery.

This year Artery Gallery will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary! We opened our doors for the first time in 2004 in Crieff in Perthshire and shortly after, made the move to the historic town of StAndrews in Fife. We have thoroughly enjoyed the last 10 years. It's been an exciting adventure and we can't wait to see what the next decade brings.

Being in StAndrews has provided us with an International base as every summer, this little town fills with visitors from all over the world. With this in mind, it's become our mission to ensure we are easily found on the World Wide Web, and so below are some links to show the various ways you can stay in touch with us online.

The success of our gallery through such a tough economic climate, has been a massive triumph and a big thank you must go out to all of our staff, our talented artists and jewellers, and our loyal customers.

To mark the occasion, we will launch our Anniversary Collection- a mix of one off pieces, designed specially for our gallery followed by an open evening later in the year.

If you have enjoyed our gallery over the years, and would like to show your support, you can 'like' us on Facebook, 'follow' us on Twitter, 'rate' us on Trip Advisor, and 'Follow' our Blog.

Modern Day Authentic Cave Paintings by Carruscaux

‘Carruscaux is an artist originally from the South-Western Europe region of what is now modern day France, and lived during the Palaeolithic period, more than 17000 years ago. He was once famed amongst his people as the number one go-to guy for all things design and interior!’ 


‘Whats going on here?’ I hear you asking. Well i'll tell you… A known artist whose name I shall not disclose has chosen to create a pseudonym by the name of Carruscaux. As with any good alter ego in the art world, this means a whole new style of painting, almost unrecognisable as the work of ‘X’.

Welcome to the first collection entitled Modern Day Authentic Cave Paintings.

The painting is called 'Doing The Big Shop'. Note the character with his TESCO bags.      

 ‘The canvas looks like a cave wall… how did you do that?’ I asked.

The trick is, layers of plaster have been applied to the canvas to create a rough, stone like effect. The texture under all of the drawings was vital to complete the overall look. 

‘Rush Hour’

3D Wall Art by Lesley Taylor

This year we welcome Lesley Taylor to Artery Gallery. Lesley creates unique three-dimensional boxed sculptures from her garden studio in West Sussex. Her work combines a series of different characters undergoing some rather unfortunate ‘accidents’, which creates quite a humorous range of wall art. Each piece is painted white with a single splash or drip of vibrant colour, which really makes them stand out.

Lesley’s ‘Drip’ series has been a real hit, always bringing a smile to people’s faces. Each piece features a painter in a precarious position where the decorating has gone horribly wrong.

Lesley’s ‘Vin Rouge’ series features an accident-prone chef and a bottle of red wine! With each piece disaster strikes and the wine is wasted in a dramatic splash across the artwork.

Lesley’s talent can really be seen here in her ‘Shades of New York’ wall sculpture. Whilst adding a touch of humor and fun to the piece, Lesley has still managed to capture the sense of the original New York photograph, which was taken more than 80 years ago on the 69th floor of the RCA building as it neared completion.
