‘Artists of Scotland’ exhibition

From Ayrshire to Edinburgh, Argyll to the Orkney isles, Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert meets a selection of the artists who contribute to the cultural fabric of our nation and presents portraits of them in their personal studios and creative spaces in a new exhibition, ‘Artists of Scotland’, at Stallan-Brand gallery in Glasgow later this year.

From small back-bedroom workstations, to large city centre studios we meet the artists at ease in the places they work, a rare glimpse into their creative workflows, and usually inaccessible and often private studio locations.

The exhibition will take viewers inside Ken Currie’s usually closed studio, to see Alison Watt in her Edinburgh new town studio (main photo, above), Callum Innes in his large and beautiful studio/gallery space, with these portraits hanging alongside those of Turner prize winners and nominees Martin Boyce, Nathan Coley and Christine Borland, and many more of their peer artists across the country.

Over 100 artists have so far been photographed in this ongoing series, and this exhibition presents the first showing of a selection of them.

A selection of this new work will be exhibited in November and December 2023 at Stallan-Brand, on the Clydeside, in Glasgow. Exact opening night event date, and run dates to be updated.

Stallan-Brand, 80 Nicholson Street, Glasgow G5 9ER, UK.
