Alec Galloway

Alec Galloway is a Scottish stained glass artist and painter based in Inverclyde on the West coast of Scotland.

Under the heading 'Crow Cottage Arts', he produces glass works and painting for both commercial and private sectors. He is also an active participant within the wider arts community throughout Scotland and regularly collaborates with community and educational groups on public art initiatives.

His glass work falls into a range of specialisms including; commercial projects, restoration of traditional glass and contemporary gallery based pieces.

He has also developed a unique sculptural approach within his glass creations that has seen them take on a more architectural aspect allowing for the integration of glass into landscape and outdoor spaces.

His paintings and collages reflect an ongoing fascination with history, heritage and sense of place - especially connections to his hometown of Greenock.

There are also themes that focus on natural history and in particular the image of the crow, a theme linked back to his childhood when he would regularly draw the wild birds that inhabited the shores and surrounding hills of his hometown.

He is also a passionate musician, the themes of music and cultural imagery regularly find a place within his compositions.

In 2016 he re-located to Bankfoot Farm, Inverkip where he currently lives, works and continues to develop new works in both fine art and glass.
