As a purpose-built exhibition space, Brown’s Gallery is unique in the Highlands. In 2005, the success of the gallery led director Gordon Brown to expand. A disused 19th century bakehouse next door to the original space was acquired, with leading architect Robin Webster commissioned to design the new gallery. Later that year, the design proposal was exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy.
Two years on, the revamped Brown’s Gallery opened its doors, unveiling a contemporary exhibition space that would be welcome in any major city. The new space has allowed the gallery to grow up, attracting new visitors and artists to the exciting group Brown’s Gallery represents.
