Welcome to my new web site! Thanks for visiting.

It’s been a while since Bertram Arts has been active. Life took an unexpected turn which led to Bertram Arts going on hold. But that has not been a bad thing as I have continued to support artists throughout this time as well as making new discoveries. Consequently, I have a new catalogue of art to offer.

Wilhelmina Barns-Graham Trust

The source of my distraction was the Wilhelmina Barns-Graham Trust which, until October 2019, I chaired for fifteen years. I was particularly closely involved in its direction since 2011 when plans were under way to celebrate the artist’s centenary in 2012. Later that year the decision was taken to sell the Trust’s St Andrews home and move to Edinburgh. As the Trust had no employees, I undertook the running of the Trust’s day to day affairs, a commitment that was all-consuming and left me no time to direct Bertram Arts.

Bertram Arts is back!

In July 2017 the Trust opened a new home in Edinburgh. I have now stood down and I am free once again to pursue my own interests, to re-invigorate Bertram Arts. This web site is the start. The new look site contains three sections – the Gallery which can be explored by artwork or artist; Focus Feature temporary exhibition pages; and Articles which provides news and opinion. Content will be regularly updated.

All the best, Geoffrey
