The Wade Gallery

Overlooking the harbour in the East Neuk town of Elie, the Wade Gallery is home to new, established and up and coming contemporary artists from all around Scotland. As Fife is widely known as one of Scotland’s top holiday destinations, exhibitions are usually held in the summer months of July and August.

Cupar Arts is more than just an art gallery. It’s a creative space with contributing members from all over the Fife market town of Cupar. Successfully showing the work of over 200 artists, Cupar has turned traditional contemporary visual art on its head, by presenting art in a rural context. If you’re lucky enough to be in Cupar during their biannual art festivals or looking for things to do in Fife, you’re in for a treat.
