A Gallery and Art Space in the heart of Dumfries and Galloway

The Nail Factory, Dalbeattie

A warm welcome awaits you at this community based gallery tucked away on Southwick Road, Dalbeattie, serving the whole of Stewartry. One of the oldest buildings in Dalbeattie, it is also home of the Dalbutha Artists Collective.

We support up and coming artists, offering a small yet contemporary eco friendly space for solo exhibitions and workshops. The Nail Factory Garden provides a wonderful setting for sculpture.

The gallery is open 11am - 6pm during exhibitions. We are happy to cater for groups of all ages, just contact Rupinder Dulay, curator at the address below.
