Landmarks Exhibition: Sandy Moffat, Alan Riach and Ruth Nicol

  • Junor Gallery 43 South Street St Andrews, Scotland, KY16 9QR United Kingdom (map)

The Junor Gallery is pleased to present the next stage in this touring exhibition of Alexander Moffat’s Scotland’s Voices, the most significant composite portrait to be painted in Scotland and Europe since the artist’s Poets’ Pub (1980, National Galleries of Scotland).  Poet’s Pub depicted an imaginary gathering of some of Scotland’s most renowned poets of the twentieth century.  This major new work focuses on Scotland’s traditional singers and musicians. It is presented in the context of a selection of preliminary sketches and drawings, together with Ruth Nicol’s celebrated landscape paintings and the evocative words of poet Alan Riach.  ‘LANDMARKS’ is a chance to see together new works by three of Scotland’s artists who have shaped the way we see ourselves and our culture.

Exhibition opens Sunday 29 July 2018 at 2pm. Admission is always free and all are most welcome. The independent gallery and artists presented are supported by your purchases, however small or large.

Exhibition runs until St Andrews Day (30 Nov 2018) and will be accompained by a series of events.
