Bertram Arts specialises in Modern and Contemporary Art. It is directed by Geoffrey Bertram who has forty years’ experience of the art business from working in galleries in Edinburgh (Aitken Dott & Son/The Scottish Gallery), Toronto (Theo Waddington Galleries/Waddington & Shiell) and London (The Scottish Gallery, and as founding Director of Art First). He established Bertram Arts in February 2005 after moving to Somerset, promoting the work of selected Somerset artists through exhibitions and art fairs. Between 2008 and 2012 he was the curator for the Art for Life programme at Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton, organising art exhibitions and sourcing art for the hospital walls. Since 2005 Geoffrey has been chair of the Wilhelmina Barns-Graham Trust, a charity established by the, St Andrews/St Ives artist Wilhelmina Barns-Graham (1912-2004) for which he directs also the Trust’s art and business development.
In 2012 Geoffrey wrote and published The Etchings of John Clerk of Eldin to mark the 200th anniversary of the artist’s death (see www.clerkofeldin.com). Arising from the research is passion for Old Master prints, particularly landscape etchings from between 1550 and 1820. He has built a collection which will have their own separate web site (still under development). You can see just a handful in the Focus Feature A Walk in the Woods.
