Davy Brown at 70 | July 2020

The Scottish Gallery is delighted to host Davy Brown's 70th birthday exhibition with The Gallery. Based in Dumfries and Galloway, Davy specialises in still life and landscape painting. Davy is also a specialist in post-war British art.

"It is fifty years since my first exhibition in the Citizens' theatre, Glasgow. I was 70 at the end of March, by which time I had been in self-imposed lockdown for two weeks, and so this exhibition is the first meaningful way in which I have been able to celebrate that birthday."

In the short film below we hear directly form Davy as he reflects on the locations that inspire his work.
