Kate Downie RSA: Walk Through Resonant Landscape

Finlay Room, RSA Lower Galleries

Free entry


In 2010 Kate Downie was awarded the RSA William Gillies Bequest Award to travel to Beijing and Shanghai to work with ink painting masters and develop her own practice in this unique medium. Following on from this experience, in 2011 Downie successfully applied for a position on the Red Gate Residency program, allowing her to return to China and develop her research. On display will be large-scale scroll ink paintings, alongside oil paintings and extensive research material. A dual-site exhibition, the RSA is pleased to announce that additional work will be available to view at the RGI Kelly Gallery in Glasgow. Works will be for sale and an accompanying publication will be available. Three years in the making, this pan-national exhibition is a must-see.
