About us

Established over 30 years, Gallery Heinzel specialises in Scottish contemporary art that reflects the team's appreciation and interest in painting and drawing...

We host a varied annual exhibition programme from our base in Aberdeen's West End exhibiting original paintings, sculpture, ceramics and glass. We aim to exhibit a range of work and styles, and to foster new graduates giving early career artists the chance to exhibit in a professional space. 

The gallery is owned 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 took over the business in 2000.  

The gallery team comprises Anita Collin, a Duncan of Jordonstone College of Art & Design Interior Design graduate, and Lois Carson, a Gray's School of Art Fine Art graduate, who majored in Sculpture. She continues to create 3D objects in stoneware and resin.
