Barry and I own and run Cut the Mustard Gallery. Barry is a photographer and I’m a jewellery designer maker. We set up the gallery in 2013 following on from a successful pop up event in the town with a group of other artists and makers. A meeting with our soon to be landlord and a desire to have a good quality space in which to show our and others work, meant that Cut the Mustard was born.
Since 2013 the gallery has gone from strength to strength, we’ve moved into bigger premises and now represent over 60 different artists, makers and jewellery designers. It is a beautiful light, bright and airy space. We aim to display everyone’s work in the best possible way and we look after the work as if it was our own. Our ethic is to source high quality, unique, handmade work from as wide a range of artists and makers as we can. That way we support lots of artists and makers to show and sell their work, whilst making sure that our lovely visitors always have something new and interesting to see.
Having 60+ makers in a gallery the size of ours is a lot of work and no two days are the same. We run 5 or 6 different exhibitions each year, alongside a gift area and our jewellery room. Our artists sell their work in the gallery for the same as they would via their own website or studio (there are no inflated prices here) just beautiful work (ceramics, sculpture, glass, printmaking, textiles, paintings, photography, wood etc) and a friendly welcome.
We’d love you to come and visit us in the pretty, former mill town of Langholm, approx 20 minutes from junction 44 of the M6. We’re pretty central, about 1.5 hours from Glasgow, Newcastle upon Tyne, Edinburgh and the South Lakes.
Hope to see you soon
Lisa & Barry
“A gem of a find discovered accidentally. I have visited many galleries worldwide and am impressed with the variety and layout offered in a small town in the Scottish Borders.”
