Ingleby Gallery

John McKenzie
City centre

Two-storey gallery near Waverley station. Look out for large-scale works on the ‘Billboard for Edinburgh’ on the outside of the gallery

Founded in 1998, the Ingleby Gallery was established in a townhouse on Carlton Terrace by art buyers and artist representatives Richard and Florence Ingleby. From there, it moved to a more traditional two-storey space to the rear of Waverley station, which was previously home to the rough, ready and much-loved local gig and club space the Venue. The renovation of the building has created a versatile exhibition space with three rooms on the ground floor and a large, long room on the first floor.

The gallery has hosted numerous group and solo shows from artists including Ian Hamilton Findlay, Callum Innes, Jonathan Owen and Peter Liversidge, while the Billboard For Edinburgh project has seen an old advertising billboard on the side of the building used for one-off site specific commissions to fit the medium.

Artists who have shown on it include Rachel Whiteread, Martin Boyce, Mark Wallinger and Bob and Roberta Smith. The gallery is a commercial venture and sells a wide range of books, prints and editions, although its considered programming and curation levels are such that it sits on a par with many of the city’s publicly funded spaces.
