Saráchaga et Compaigne have partnered with The Royal Hotel in Kircudbright and are launching a grass roots campaign to use the space as a gallery for local artists. The first exhibition held there was by artist Emily Cooper as part of the Kirkcudbright Arts Trail.
Baroness Stephanie de Saráchaga is a Scion of an established art family and head of Saráchaga et Compaigne- The family firm’s aim is direct investing, stewarding, and creating social impact. Prominent members of the family include Stephanie’s great great grandfather the Baron de Saráchaga founder of Musee de Hieron in France and Juan Daniel de Saráchaga, founder of the Saráchaga auction house of Argentina (both establishments with connections to the Louvre.
In the long term the the gallery is to be attached to a small entrepreneurial co-working space and function as a space for local artists to display and sell their work to a local and international audience.
One of the displayed distinct pieces on display was “The Wall”- a mixed media work featuring a young Mexican child, pesos and barbed wire.
