Distilled Tone

02 Mar 2016 - 30 Mar 2016

The Scottish Gallery is delighted to present Distilled Tone; an exhibition co-curated by Scottish contemporary tapestry weaver Sara Brennan encompassing tapestry, jewellery, silversmithing, ceramics, furniture and glass. Distilled Tone includes new work by Sara Brennan and will explore colour, tone and material; showcasing both national and international work.

“Throughout the entire exhibition there is a prevailing and fundamental basis for each piece; the craft and the materials. These elements however go further than decoration and function. They draw beyond the surface considerations. The references in the work such as textile, tradition, tone, materials, colour and landscape make for refined objects." Sara Brennan, 2016.
