From the Sublime to the Concrete

06 Jun 2018 - 30 Jun 2018

From the Sublime to the Concrete is an exhibition about the landscape. It is the outcome of a conversation with the visual artist Derrick Guild, which led to the invitation to curate a show for us. Guild sees landscape as poetic and intellectual environment, a paradigm for the creative experience from which the artist draws inspiration across media and subject. Today landscape continues to provide inspiration and current Academicians are inevitably included in an exhibition which celebrates a genre which extends beyond the physical into the metaphysical. Exhibiting artists include: Stephen BirdJames CastleDoug CockerDavid CookVictoria CroweKate DownieDavid EustaceRonald ForbesMartin GreenlandJohn HewittCalum McClureJock McFadyenDawnne McGeachyHannah MooneyJames MorrisonPaul ReidAlan RobbPaul ScottGraeme ToddMichael VisocchiArthur Watson.

Please join the curator and visual artist Derrick Guild for an informal talk in the Gallery on Saturday 16 June, 11.00 - 12 noon. This is a free but ticketed event, so please sign up to book your place.
