This summer The Scottish Gallery and Dovecot Studios celebrate the artist Jock McFadyen’s 70th birthday year with Lost Boat Party as part of the Edinburgh Art Festival 2021. Jock McFadyen finds his subject in the marginal and overlooked. He finds a derelict corner, or a twilight landscape seen through a chain link fence; graffiti is enigmatic under an endless, perfect sky. The exhibition will be open to the public at Dovecot Studios in conjunction with our virtual Viewing Room.
