The Scottish Gallery Edinburgh
From the Sublime to the Concrete is an exhibition about the landscape. It is the outcome of a conversation with the visual artist Derrick Guild, which led to the invitation to curate a show for us. Guild sees landscape as poetic and intellectual environment, a paradigm for the creative experience from which the artist draws inspiration across media and subject. Today landscape continues to provide inspiration and current Academicians are inevitably included in an exhibition which celebrates a genre which extends beyond the physical into the metaphysical. Exhibiting artists include: Stephen Bird, James Castle, Doug Cocker, David Cook, Victoria Crowe, Kate Downie, David Eustace, Ronald Forbes, Martin Greenland, John Hewitt, Calum McClure, Jock McFadyen, Dawnne McGeachy, Hannah Mooney, James Morrison, Paul Reid, Alan Robb, Paul Scott, Graeme Todd, Michael Visocchi, Arthur Watson.
Please join the curator and visual artist Derrick Guild for an informal talk in the Gallery on Saturday 16 June, 11.00 - 12 noon. This is a free but ticketed event, so please sign up to book your place.
