Over the 22 years of running The Butterworth Gallery in Ballogie, we have found that both Howard's and Mary's work are popular as a wedding gift. The Scottish images evoke powerful memories of a favourite place and special times in typically Royal Deeside. This strong feeling of connection with our art work is what makes these art pieces ideal for a wedding gift. It is often said by our visiting newly weds, that they wish they had known about our Gallery Gift Account Service.
