gallery inside

Gallery Heinzel is owned and run by Maura Tighe. Originally from Dublin, Maura moved to Aberdeen from Edinburgh in 1998. In 1999 she met and began working for Chris Heinzel, the gallery's founder. Already an avid collector of Scottish art, the gallery's ethos and style appealed to Maura who happily took over the business in 2000. Two years later she moved it to its purpose designed premise on Thistle Street, in Aberdeen's West End. Here she hosts up to eight exhibitions a year by artists from across Scotland.
