Bertram Arts specialises in Modern and Contemporary Art. It is directed by Geoffrey Bertram who has over forty years’ experience of the art business from working in art 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 environment. From 2005 to March 2019 Geoffrey was chair of the Wilhelmina Barns-Graham Trust, a charity established by the renowned St Andrews/St Ives artist Wilhelmina Barns-Graham (1912-2004).
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 his research came a passion for European Old Master landscape prints, predominantly etchings, from the period between 1560 and 1820 around which theme he has built up his own prints collection. A small group of these etchings is included in the Focus Feature A Walk in the Woods.
