site information

This page contains general website information, a who's who at the Peedie Gallery, credits and thanks and terms and conditions of using the site.

This website (www.peediegallery.co.uk) is the online manifestation of the Peedie Gallery - a portable (miniature) gallery made from a shoebox.

The Peedie Gallery is a project devised, developed and managed by 59north - an arts management and creative project development collaborative based in Orkney. The aim is to not only develop, build and manage a unique gallery space on as small a budget as possible, but to hopefully add to and expand the dialogue and discussion locally about galleries and the arts - hence the location and novelty of size of the gallery.

You can contact the Peedie Gallery via email at info@peediegallery.co.uk, or via our online contact form.

credits & thanks

The Peedie Gallery website is designed, built and hosted by Rik Hammond at watson press website design & authoring - supported by digitalORKNEY - an associate network of ICT professionals based in Orkney.


Thanks to all the formal and informal partners of the Peedie Gallery for helping with the project.

Thanks, especially, to Orkney Arts Development and the Orkney Museums and Heritage service at Orkney Islands Council for supporting the Peedie Gallery project - and giving it a home for its first location.

Also - many thanks to Matilda Tumim and Christopher Prendergast (Christil Trumpet) for having enough faith in the project to take on the task of being the first artists to exhibit at the Peedie Gallery...

...and last, but not least, thanks to all the visitors to the gallery (both online and 'in the flesh') who have given us so much support with this project.
