The Harbour Gallery is now live.....visit and shop on the online Gallery - www.theharbourgallery.com
Just returned from a mini ’local tour’....driving on and off ferries between the mainland and Great Cumbrae and Bute. Dropped a couple of new works into ’The Castle Gallery’- Rothesay and have been invited to supply a lot more Paintings to them this year.
I have a backlog of paintings to list in ’Original Works’ that I will begin tonight.......over 30 New works will go online over the weekend.
Crazy few months............Painting, painting, painting. Just delivered this week - 5 New Paintings to Rowan Gallery (Helensburgh), 7 New Paintings to Greens & Blues (North Berwick), 4 New Paintings to Torrance Gallery (Edinburgh), 5 New Paintings to West End Galleries (Perth & Falkirk), 4 New Paintings to Stables Gallery (Inveraray), 5 New Paintings to The Archway (Lochgilphead), 6 Paintings to Southside Gallery (Glasgow), 3 Paintings to Merchant City Gallery (Glasgow).
Now focusing on my Solo Exhibition at The Torrance Gallery, Edinbugh - 7th June until 28th June. I have shown with the Torrance over the last 5 years, but this is the first year I have been invited as a ’Solo’ artist.
This exhibition is the largest I have attempted, it does scare me, with the amount of time consumed on this ’one’ moment.
Looking for ’likes’& ’shares’ on Facebook. Search for THE HARBOUR GALLERY or STUART HERD......Thanks

Since the eye was removed in Nov last year, life has got better, certainly less pain and irritation. I will be going back in a few weeks to finish the fittings for the ’proper’ fake eye. ( June 2013. ’New’ fake eye fitted and adjusted....looks good! )
Now showing paintings in The Corfu Gallery, Corfu. During a holiday in Oct. I produced paintings for the gallery to sell and hope to have an exhibition there in 2013 - (June 2013 update...work will be sent over during the summer).
The Harbour Gallery has been open for almost 2 years now and has totally exceeded my expectations.Sales are up on projections across the board, with sales of my original work and the Steamer/Ferry timetables that are mounted up, proving popular.....A good mention in ’The Scottish Field’ as one of the top ten places to visit in Argyll !!
Keep visiting and tell your friends !!!
Pleased to announce the opening of my own Gallery......’The Harbour Gallery’ in Tarbert, Argyll. Opened its doors on Thurs 15th March and celebrated with an opening weekend on Sat 17th & 18th March, guests were invited to join us for a glass of wine to view new works by myself and a large selection of artists from Argyll and around the UK.
The gallery prides itself on the quality of New Original work and will refresh constantly with a chance of a first time viewing of newly completed works.
There are a varied selection of Framed and Mounted prints showcasing Scottish artists past and present, aswell as a unique portfolio of Vintage and Retro prints focusing on Travel and Advertising from around Scotland, with local interest from - Original Steamer Timetables to Original Cloth Maps and Antique Postcards of the area all professionally mounted and with the option at source - to frame.
We also showcase Jewellery, Ceramics, Glass and Sculpture from established and emerging artists.
This is a very exciting venture for myself and my family, I have been waiting for the right location in Tarbert and now its happened.
The Harbour Gallery website - www.theharbourgallery.com is now LIVE (March 2013 !!)
My Studio ’The Art Studio’ will remain as it is, the gallery is a totally new project in the centre of Tarbert - located on the corner of Harbour St / Campbeltown Rd, opposite the PO & CO-OP and next door to the Bank of Scotland, Fletchers deli and the ’top paper shop’......basically, where ’Woods Estate Agents’ was.....’The Harbour Gallery’ now is !!
See you for a viewing......
