Fergusson Gallery celebrates the life and work of the great pioneers of modern art and dance, John Duncan Fergusson and Margaret Morris. J D Fergusson is now best known as one of the celebrated Scottish Colourist painters, while Margaret Morris is recognised for her pioneering work in modern dance. She was also an inspired choreographer, artist, movement therapist and author. Housed under the one roof at The Fergusson Gallery, their collections tell a fascinating story.

An interesting venue for a gallery in that it is round. The paintings and drawings were very nicely arranged and there was lots of information to guide you through. Good toilets as well - very clean.

Takes a short walk from the centre of town along the bank of the mighty Tay to get here. Doable in an hour or so. If you are into architecture, worth a look as this 'rotunda' building is one of the earliest cast iron buildings in the world. Formerly a waterworks and now repurposed as a home for the gallery....

As an ex- civil engineer I found the story of the restoration (on the stairwell walls) an interesting diversion. Fits in well with a walk around the parks on the opposite side of the river. (Go across the... More

We received a warm welcome from the ladies on the desk as we entered and given useful information about the gallery. There are two circular galleries. The one downstairs has many paintings by Fergusson, many portraits and café scenes. A wonderful collection although one... More

A small gallery focusing on the paintings of Fergusson. The gallery is in a former rotunda. Does not take long to view the exhibits.

A beautiful presented exhibition of Ferguson's work and his talented partner Margaret Morris. The two pleasant ladies who greet you on entering the interesting building, are both due a mention for their pleasantness.

Housed in a former water tower, this is an interesting gallery featuring the work of J D Fergusson. The paintings and the story they tell are fascinating and the way the gallery is et up makes the atmposphere quite intimate.
