Great Scots in Isolation

04 May 2020

Victoria Crowe

We're pleased to introduce Great Scots in Isolation, which is a series of short 1-2 minute films by Scottish Gallery artists from Scotland, UK and internationally. We are delighted to have this project launched by Victoria Crowe, who very kindly agreed to make the first film for us, with the helping hand of her husband Michael Walton. The Scottish Gallery wants to show solidarity to all at this time of isolation and let you into our artists' worlds. We will be posting the films onto our social media feeds and uploading to our Scottish Gallery YouTube page. They will all be able to be viewed and enjoyed on our film section of the website. Sit back and enjoy!
