New Greetings Cards Published by McGill Duncan Gallery


It's something I've always wanted to do, publish our own Greetings Cards, other than our annual Christmas card. When I saw Leo's latest collection of paintings and screenprints I knew they would make stunning cards. We chose five designs. They have just come back from the printers, just in time for Spring Fling. We are all so pleased with them.


They cost £2.50 each and as well as being available from the gallery they are also on our online shop with free postage!

Leo Blamire - Spring Fling Studio 25

We've been busy helping Leo get his work installed in the gallery for Spring Fling. He is off to see the Prince concert in Glasgow tonight (lucky thing) so we wanted to get organised before that. All his work is displayed in the front room of the gallery. The colours look fantastic together and it has all come together beautifully.
