Opened in 2015, Gallery in the Fort, is an art gallery and picture framers on Fort William High Street that specialises in art and crafts by Lochaber based artists. Most of our artists are excellent amateurs, with a variety of styles that suit different tastes. Original artwork starts from £5 upwards.
We are also known as the “Penguin Shop” due to our extensive and world famous, range of penguins. Our website: www.penguincorner.co.uk has been active since 2009 and we have sponsored several Penguin conferences over the past 7 years. We also like to promote penguin research whenever we can. When we opened in 2015, some puffins decided move in and we now have a large puffin colony which increases on a yearly basis.
We also have a wide range of art supplies including paints, brushes, and mediums, different types of art paper, sketching and canvases. We can also order products in for customers, providing our suppliers offer that product.
We also make our own fused glass products, sometimes using scrap glass from our picture framing service. This includes Christmas decorations, draped bowls, dishes and coasters as well as our own range of homemade jewellery. Last year we added scented candles to our range. These mainly use Scottish themed scents with a few exceptions. See our website here.
