The Gallery

Thistle Gallery is a friendly neighbourhood gallery located in Kelvinbridge, one of Glasgow West End’s most vibrant areas, where Carol Dunbar has created an exquisite space with an eclectic mix of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, textiles and jewellery.

The gallery has a spacious and tranquil feel with art work beautifully exhibited and tasteful displays of ceramics, glass and jewellery complement the wonderful paintings.


The window installations are themselves a work of art and passers-by cannot help but stop to admire them – often they are tempted to step into the gallery.  They can be assured of a friendly greeting. Look out for the fabulous book art by Ronnie Gildea.
