Art galleries may seem like an unusual llrst stop on a Christmas shopping spree, but don’t be tooled into thinking that because it’s 'art’, it must be expensive. All the big galleries nowadays use their shops as something more than a way at promoting the current exhibition. The National Galleries and Glasgow Art Galleries, lor example, both have lalrly extensive catalogues ol posters, ceramics, games, jewellery etc. In tact the Art Gallery and Museum at Kelvingrove is even holding a book sale on Sun 13 Dec.
Small galleries, too, are the ideal place to buy one-oh pieces at jewellery

and ceramics, in particulartry the Open Eye Gallery, Scottish Gallery, Kinglisher Gallery, Flying Colours and the Collective Gallery in Edinburgh, and Compass in Glasgow. Often these pieces are no more expensive than mass-produced designs, and there is the added incentive of knowing that you are investing in the luture at a struggling artist. The Fruitmarket Gallery has an excellent range oi art books and original publications by Ian Hamilton Finlay.
Prints and paintings are more expensive, but this is the ideal time ol year to scout around the very many Christmas shows looking lor works by
this year’s graduates or established artists. An unframed print can cost as little as 5:404:50. Glasgow Print Studio and the Edinburgh Printmakers’ Studio, always have a good selection irom their own members, who include some of the most succeslul contemporary artists. Cyril Gerber’s Christmas Show is legendary; Hanover Fine Arts and Art Exposure both have sweeping exhibitions at 'small works’. The photography galleries also have wide selecions ol books and prints to sale — try Portfolio, Stills and Street Level. (Miranda France)

Edinburgh, the Scottish National Gallery of
. Modern Art has honoured
3 him with a new portrait,
painted by one of his early protégés, Barbara Balmer. Demarco played a vital role in conservative Edinburgh art circles, introducing avant-garde artists, often from Eastern Europe, to audiences whose perceived lack of appreciation was often to frustrate him. He was closely associated with the German artist Joseph Beuys, introduced the Polish experimental theatre director Tadeusz Kantor to the Fringe and was a founder member of the Traverse Theatre.
