First brings together nine artists who have not exhibited in The Scottish Gallery before and represents The Gallery’s recognition of the strength and depth of artist talent in this country. There is a deliberate mix of artists from various stages in their careers and an acknowledgment of the validity of all media in creative endeavour.

This exhibition is a complementary juxtaposition of sculptural, abstract and figurative work. The investigation of landscape both real and imagined, urban or natural, of process, of the history of art and ideas, is embraced. Most importantly, First is a celebration of talent, material and different ways of seeing the world.
