A Birthday Celebration | Small Works of Art

03 May 2017 - 03 Jun 2017

May is our 175th anniversary month and a time when we want to look forward as well as to celebrate our past.

We have invited over one hundred artists to respond with a small work of art especially for this exhibition and are delighted with the originality, variety and wit of the artworks. Many are working towards future exhibitions, others have not exhibited with us for some time but all are part of a community of creative people, much wider than can be included in one exhibition, which makes up The Scottish Gallery family. We are very grateful to over fifty applied artists who have produced original, commemorative pins in a range of media and a similar number of artists have made uniformly scaled works of equal originality. Please click here to view the entire collection of commemorative pins.

The Gallery takes this opportunity to offer thanks to this wide community of artists; past, present and future for their talent and dedication, without which there would be nothing to celebrate.
