Alexander Millar Returns To Princes Square

Alexander Millar has a permanent art gallery in Princes Square.

The gallery exhibits a collection of originals, drawings and limited-edition prints that feature his much-loved ‘gadgies’, ‘Peaky Blinders’ inspired gangsters from his ‘Youth & Young Manhood’ portfolio and golfing characters from his ‘Fairway to Heaven’ collection. As well as these the works, collectors and fans will also have the chance to purchase some very rare, and no longer available, paintings and prints from the artist’s own archive collection.

With reference to Alexander’s Scottish roots (he was born and brought up in the Ayrshire village of Springside), the Glasgow gallery also exhibits a collection of iconic landscape paintings.

Alexander Millar Fine Art is at Unit 46, First Level, Princes Square, Buchanan Street, Glasgow.



Alexander Millar Introduces New Collection of Artwork For Gallery Re-Openings

Scottish artist, Alexander Millar has created a series of paintings that have also been produced as signed, limited edition prints, that are being launched in conjunction with the re-opening of his own art galleries in Glasgow and Newcastle.

These artworks were inspired by his memories of childhood, in an era when things seemed much more simple, and they revive the characters that initially captured the art-collecting public’s attention.

His ‘gadgies’, working class men, women and children of the late industrial era of the 20th century, remind so many of the following generations of a Dad, a Mam, a Granddad or an old neighbour who would cycle off to work at dawn in slightly shabby old suit and a flat cap.

His new works convey strong emotions of comradeship, affection and hope and relate to three situations that make the viewer smile.

  • ‘Bring Me More Sunshine’ is a tribute to Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise and recalls a time when we, as a nation, would gather around our TVs on a Saturday night or on Christmas Day to watch these comedy superstars.
  • ‘Memories of My Dad’ conveys a strong feeling for the artist of quality time spent with his Dad, on local fishing trips in Ayrshire.
  • ‘Couldnae Catch A Cold’ portrays two ‘gadgies that are more interested in a good blether and a wee dram than doing any serious fishing. The phrase is a less than positive description of someone’s fishing skills.

Despite the recent pandemic disruption, I’m sure there’s an appetite for art lovers to get back to both public and commercial galleries, and these new artworks will help bring back smiles to our faces” said Alexander Millar.

These original oil paintings and framed signed limited edition prints will be exhibited Alexander Millar’s Grey Street Newcastle Gallery from Monday 12 April and in his Prince’s Square Glasgow Gallery from Monday 26 April.

Visit our Glasgow Gallery in Princes Square to view these framed, original drawings or if you can’t make it there, you can view them online here.
