In 2005 After Lawsons Timber & Picture Framing closed we saw an opportunity to continue the great service they provided with Lawsons Timber and created Macdonald Framing.
Along with providing a framing service to local Artists for over 25 years we developed a knowledge and appreciation of Scottish Artists, spotted a gap in the market and decided to promote a selected group of local Artists. The Art studio proved a success in Candlemaker Row and soon took over much of the workshop space, "there is a lack of outlets for emerging and established Artists, and we now carry the largest stock of Affordable Art Prints in Edinburgh's Greater Grassmarket."
"Our aim is to give new and emerging Artists an introduction to and further develop skills in retailing, exhibition display and packaging etc." We have assisted many artists increase their sales & career through our use of advertising, social media and of course our location in Edinburgh's Candlemaker Row, the Gallery space provides a platform for Artists and Crafty folks from across Scotland to showcase and sell their craft and creations.
We currently stock & promote a collective of over 40 Artists from Edinburgh and beyond, who produce a unique range of Edinburgh & Scottish Art Prints, illustrations, ceramics and jewellery.
We also liase with a local fine art publisher to bring you new emerging artists their creations fresh from the press.
Our new creations through Google business and Google Guides has seen our collection reach over 1 million views in less than a year.
This year we shall raise awareness of Aspergers with a campaign highlighting Autistic Artists in 2018.
