DOM Gallery, Advocate's Close

Located on the east side of Advocate's Close in the Old Town of Edinburgh, the DOM gallery is to be found in Edinburgh's oldest house, dating from the late 15th C. The gallery makes use of several tenement-style houses, between No. 4 and No. 8 Advocate's Close, which are today connected. A date of 1590 appears on the lintel above the entrance to No. 4. Inside there are the remains of wall and ceiling paintings dating from between 1580 and 1630.

This commercial gallery and art project was established in 1996 by a group of international artists working in Scotland to promote contemporary European culture. It displays a variety of works, including ceramics, glass, paintings, sculpture and tapestries.
