The Making of a Gallery: James Henry Maclaurin
Sunday 21st July - Sunday 22 September 2019
2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of James Henry Maclaurin and to commemorate this event the Maclaurin Trust is presenting a special exhibition entitled ‘The Making of a Gallery’.
His widow, Mary Ellen Maclaurin, who died more than 50 years later, left a wonderful bequest to the people of Ayr to found a gallery in his memory. The exhibition will tell the story of the Maclaurin Gallery from its foundation to the present day. The highlights of the Permanent Collection, considered to be one of the best in Britain, will form a major part of the display alongside fascinating information about the Maclaurin family and their connection with the town.
