Today, we are delighted to announce our Gallery’s official opening on 12 October 2021. 


At our first show, celebrating the imaginative artworks of Colin Hay, the BirdsNest is very pleased to show his paintings and drawings in our exhibition space. Born in Musselburgh, near Edinburgh, the artist originally studied Graphic Design at Edinburgh College of Art. His successful career in adveritising, including highly rated science fiction book jacket illustrations, led him on to painting full time - with tremendous results.


“His works are moving and incredibly versatile. They are magical and mystical. We are delighted to have his art in the BirdsNest featuring Scottish talent.” 


Ken Johnstone 

Curator of the BirdsNest Gallery
