This year’s raffle prize has been painted by Julie Winter and is a scene in Glen Afton where she lives.

BrickPort

Maclaurin Art Gallery
Saturday 17 November - Sunday 23 December

BrickPort, the model airport made entirely out of Lego©, covers 16 square metres and so doesn’t fit easily into most galleries! With a fully lit and  animated runway, we are delighted to bring it to the Maclaurin, providing children, parents and carers with all the inspiration they will need to set them up for the Christmas holidays!

Diversity of Digital Art

Maclaurin Art Gallery
Saturday 24 November - Sunday 23 December

Brought to us by ‘Scope Collective’, a group of five young female artists who are experimenting with what it means to create digital art. Each member utilises a variety of digital and analogue techniques to create their works blurring the line between the two.

Ages of Wonder: The Royal Scottish Academy Life School

Rozelle House Galleries
Saturday 18 August - Sunday 7 October 2018

The pinnacle of art study has traditionally been the human figure. The RSA operated a Life School between 1840 and 1932 and last year staged a contemporary equivalent as part of the major exhibition Ages of Wonder. This exhibition is a diverse mix of prize-winning student work from then and now, historic collected teaching aids and new work created by contemporary artists including Beth Fisher, George Donald and Christine Borland.
