Building on the market
Edinburgh’s Ingleby Gallery to relocate
The building housing the Ingleby Gallery adjacent to Waverley Station in Edinburgh is on the market after the owners of the business decided to move to a smaller location.
Richard and Florence Ingleby set up their art business in 1998 and it has been based in the three-storey Calton Road building for eight years.
It was formerly known as the Venue music venue and club and hosted bands such as Coldplay, Sonic Youth, Texas, Travis, Radiohead and the Cocteau Twins.
Since its transformation into an art gallery it has exhibited work by some of Scotland’s leading contemporary artists, including Charles Avery, Callum Innes, Katie Paterson and Alison Watt. Its current exhibition of the work by the Scottish artist Kevin Harman may be its last at the site.
Mr Ingleby told The Herald newspaper: “The building is being sold to release capital in order to strengthen our activities in other areas and territories, so that we can better look after the interests of the artists and collectors with whom we work most closely. We will be opening a new space later in the year.”
He added: “Rest assured, the next chapter will be every bit as beautiful – albeit on a smaller scale.”
