NEW WORKS: RSA Residencies for Scotland

Finlay Room, RSA Lower Galleries

Free entry


This exhibition will present work by five artists who participated in the 2009 RSA Residencies for Scotland programme. As part of the programme, each of the five artists received funding (up to £5000) and an opportunity to spend time at RSA Partner arts venues across Scotland. These venues allow the artist to further develop their practice in a period of research from one week to six months.


Paintings, photographs, prints, film work and sculpture resulting from these periods of research are exhibited as part of this exhibition.


The following artists are participating:


Anthony Schrag
Deveron Arts, Huntly 
Peacock Visual Arts, Aberdeen 
WASPS, Glasgow 


Becky Šik
Scottish Sculpture Workshop, Lumsden


Frank Pottinger
The Rendezvous Gallery/Tigh Alasdair Ruaraidh, Lewis 


James Lumsden

Patricia Cain
Wasps Artist Studio, Glasgow: creating work for the final exhibition of the Aspect Prize and for a solo exhibition at the Meffan Gallery, Forfar.




The Royal Scottish Academy Residencies for Scotland programme in association with the Scottish Arts Council. With a total budget of some £45,000, this exciting new scheme provides funded residency opportunities with partner provider venues across Scotland enabling contemporary artists a period of research and forging vital new links with these artistic centres of excellence. The consortium of collaborators with whom we intend to work all have a long history of offering quality development to, and presentation opportunities for, contemporary artists. For many, their expertise and longevity has formed the back-bone of artist practice in Scotland for decades.
