Confession of a Highland Art Dealer


Tony Davidson founded Kilmorack Gallery in 1997, repairing and using a redundant eighteen-century church to house exhibitions of contemporary artists. Much has changed in the twenty-five years since then – technologically, economically and environmentally - and these new worlds unfold in Davidson’s first book ‘Confession of a Highland Art Dealer.’

‘I started writing Confessions because of an urge and found it hard to stop. The distant past somehow felt solid while the present was so fresh and turbulent it has all the qualities of a dream. When you write you realise the power of simplicity, and hopefully re-find what is important.’

Tony was born in Edinburgh in 1967, moved to the Highlands in 1993 and has exhibited and written about the work by over eighty of Scotland’s most interesting artists since founding Kilmorack Gallery.
