West Barns Arts is an artist run organisation that aims to promote awareness and understanding of contemporary art in East Lothian. Based at the Old School in the village of West Barns, we provide affordable studio space for local artists and a bookable Project Space that is used for exhibitions, classes, workshops and other public events that improve access to the arts for the local community.

Since 2004 we have developed and upgraded the West Barns Studios building. By improving the facilities we have, we aim to raise the profile of West Barns Arts as a major venue out with the main art centres. We are committed to making a substantial contribution to the local area.

West Barns Arts is run by voluntary co-directors: Liz Adamson, Susan Mowatt and Graeme Todd.
