George Gilbert was born in Glasgow. He trained at the Glasgow School of Art between 1957 - 1961 under William Armour and David Donaldson. In 1962 George undertook a postgraduate study course for which he was highly commended.
George Gilbert spent the next 25 years teaching art before becoming a full-time artist in 1989. With his wife Lesley he also set up the Courtyard Gallery in Crail which they owned from 1993 until 2001.
In 1973 George Gilbert was elected to the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolour (RWS). He also became an elected member of the Paisley Art Institute in 1992.
George Gilbert has exhibited his paintings widely throughout the UK and the USA. He has participated in many group and joint art shows including the Cleveland Drawing Biennial, the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition and the RSW Summer Open Shows. He regularly exhibits at the RSW, RSA and RGI.
George lets the subject dictate which medium to use for his paintings. His preferred medium is acrylic, water-colour and pen & ink wash. The objects Gilbert paints are part of a "family" he has collected over many years mainly from flea markets in Scotland but also from abroad. George is also drawn to the Scottish harbours and landscapes particularly of the East Neuk of Fife.
