The Logbook - A solo winter voyage

Ross Ryan

02 May 2018 - 02 Jun 2018

This May we are delighted to welcome Ross Ryan for his first major solo exhibition with The Scottish Gallery. In September 2017, Ross set sail from Crinan aboard the 'Sgarbh', which was to be his home and studio for the next 60 days. Throughout his journey and through often heavy weather, Ross captured the changing scenery of Scotland's west coast, charting his voyage with his own unique interpretation of light, weather, and landscape.
