AboutHOME TO ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING COLLECTIONS OF CONTEMPORARY ARTWORKS TO BE FOUND ANYWHERE IN SCOTLAND TODAY, BROWNS GALLERY IN TAIN WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1993, BY SCOTTISH ARTIST GORDON BROWN.As a purpose-built exhibition space, Browns Gallery is unique in the Highlands. In 2005, the success of the original 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 Browns Gallery opened its doors, unveiling a contemporary exhibition space that would be welcome in any major city. The newer space allowed the gallery to grow, attracting new visitors and artists to the exciting group that Brown's Gallery represents.
