About Fife Contemporary

Welcome to our virtual venue! Fife Contemporary is an independent visual art & craft organisation based in St Andrews, Fife, Scotland. Unusually our programme is not delivered from a single venue but delivered across Fife through varied partnerships in all kinds of places. We are also developing the digital services available to an even larger audience through this site.

Fife Contemporary has been in existence since 2006, but its roots can be found in the Crawford Arts Centre, a long established venue in St Andrews that closed its doors in 2006. Since 2006, our small staff team has forged strong links with the artist community in Fife and beyond, and works in partnership with a wide range of organisations within Fife, the UK and internationally to bring exciting contemporary art & craft projects to life.

Exhibitions are at the heart of Fife Contemporary’s interest in creating activity which is multi-disciplinary in approach and outcome. People of all ages are also engaged through varied participatory activity. A unique network has been built for artists in Fife providing information and opportunities for them to meet and develop their work.

Part of Fife Contemporary’s programme involves craft development. This was originally done through treat, a brand created by Fife Contemporary to promote Scottish craft artists and their work.  While the treat store has been closed, Fife Contemporary’s online shop is still open, selling past exhibition publications & artist multiples, and in 2017 the first CPD day for new craft & design graduates & makers is planned in addition to the first online craft exhibition.
